Gratulerer med dagen, Elisabeth Andreassen, happy birthday! The Norwegian singer and 1985 ESC winner celebrates her 59th birthday today, 28 March. Elisabeth first participated in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1982 as one half of Sweden’s duo Chips (“Dag Efter Dag”, placed eighth). In 1985, together with Hanne Krogh, she formed the duo Bobbysocks! and secured Norway’s first-ever win at the Contest with the song “La Det Swinge”. In 1994 ‘Bettan’ participated as a duet with Jan Werner Danielsen (“Duet”, placed sixth), and in 1996, she returned to Eurovision as a soloist, performing “I Evighet” (placed second). Watch again her performance at Oslo Spektrum on 18 May 1996 here (performance starts at TC 1:15)… all the best Bettan!
