Following their resounding success at Eurovision, winning the televote and finishing in 6th place overall with 331 points, KEiiNO have promised that Tel Aviv is only the beginning.

They are the first act to be announced for the VG-Listashow. It’s a musical showcase dating back to 1958 and features Norway’s charting hits from across the year. The grand spectacle will take place at Oslo’s Town Hall Square in June.

Alexandra told Norweigan media outlet VG: “I have many dreams, and getting to sing at City Hall Square has always been one of them. Now I get to do it with two of my very best friends, it’s absolutely great!”

New music is also on the horizon for the trio. They have plans to “create a concept album with indigenous languages from around the world.”

“This is a huge step in the right direction for the Sami culture! It is still only May in the UN year for indigenous languages so now we can continue our efforts to strengthen endangered languages. That’s one of the goals of KEiiNO this year,” Fred said.

Promoting endangered languages, such as Northern Sami, had always been on the agenda for KEiiNO at Eurovision and beyond, as the group pride themselves in how they’ve made it work despite not fitting into the music industry’s pre-defined “box”.

“We came here to do one thing: get the song, the message and the joik out to the people! And this shows that the joik, which is one of Europe’s oldest song traditions, touches the viewers’s soul.”

KEiiNO aren’t disheartened by the jury knocking their overall ranking down to 6th place, instead they’re encouraged by the overwhelming support from the public.

As Tom told VG: “We feel we have won over Europe! We don’t make music for the critics, so seeing our combination of joik and catchy pop strike a chord with such a wide audience is an indescribably good feeling!”

With an album on the cards and concert dates already being scheduled, it looks like we haven’t seen the last of KEiiNO. Would you like to see them perform in a city near you? Let us know in the comments!

I am over the moon and the entire solar system for KEiiNO’s televoting result in Eurovision, yet outraged at the same time with the blunder during the jury performance for the GF. #justice. I look forward to their new music, they are #mysweetdarlingsforever.

Guys I just made reaction for the Grand final…
Unfortunately he (Duncan) was singing too much better than the winner performance as everyone told me in the comments on my video…
Man!!! That means he sing for win
He really doesn’t deserve the winning or his fans
I don’t think that Mahmood will do that 😀

i’m shocked, i thought they just formed the group for the eurovision and that they would’ve moved on with their solo careers when it was all over but i’m so thrilled they’ll record an entire album together. truly a winning project!

Legends? Frank Sinatra is laughing all the way in his grave with such “millenial”-statement.
