Morten Thomassen wrtes over the 2001 Eurovision song contest in Copenhagen. ESC Covers google translated it from Norwegian to English.
Arranging an international final costs the shirt and the rest of the wardrobe for most TV stations.
So I doubt whether the finance manager in the host country wants another victory.
Then it’s great that you change to second place, everyone will be super happy and you won’t have to spend a lot of money next year.
Danish Rollo & King managed this at home in Copenhagen back in 2001.
With the song “Never Ever Let You Go”, they were admittedly 21 points short of beating the somewhat surprising winners from Estonia.
Down to Greece in third place, there were a total of 30 points, so another silver place with a comfortable points distance.
This final is perhaps best remembered for still having the audience record with over 38,000 present, not the world’s greatest success, the sound for the audience was poor and many artists looked so little on the stage.
Some may also remember that the presenters chose to present their manuscript in rhyme, not all ideas used in ESC have been reused, fortunately.
The duo Rollo & King consisted of the two guys Søren Poppe and Stefan Teilmann Laub Nilsen, the lady who sang with them Signe Svendsen was only there as a singing decoration, you might say.
After releasing two successful albums in the years 2000 and 2001 respectively, the duo broke up in 2002.
In other words, a short and content-rich career and it is doubtful whether any of them will try their hand at our driving competition again.
However, Søren Poppe tried his hand at a new duet in the Danish MGP in 2006 and came third.
