Morten Thomassen of OGAE Norway alerted ESC Covers about the show ALLSANG PA GRENSEN that took place yesterday.
Last night Morten Thomassen, OGAE Norway president, attended a show by two Norwegian Eurovision females – ANITA SKORGAN and ELISABETH ANDREASSEN. There were 200 people allowed to attend and the two sang a lot of Eurovision covers. They sang the following songs
SARA SKORGAN TEIGEN, the daughter of Anita Skorgan and Jahn Teigen recorded the 1982 Norwegian Eurovision entry of her parents, ADIEU. It is only the third time she is performing in front of an audience.
Anita Skorgan covered the 1988 Norwegian Eurovision entry FOR VAR JORD in Norwegian.

One of my favourite moments from back in Vienna 2015, was seeing just how well contestants Mans Zelmerlow (Sweden) & Guy Sebastian (Australia) got on together during that week. Then this great freindship even transcended onto the Eurovision scoreboard, when both countries gave each other 12 points. There was even talk of a future duet between Mans and Guy, that would be special. This has got me thinking how many times has two stars of the past Eurovision Song Contests have actually got together to make a duet? besides covering a Eurovision entry, itself.
So I did some searching around and came up with my own
Top 10 Eurovision artists duets.
1. Maria Haukaas Storeng & Måns Zelmerlöw- ‘Precious to Me’
2. Christer Björkman & Shirley Clamp- La Vie/ This is My Life
3. Agnetha Faltskog & Tomas Ledin- Never Again
4. Johnny Logan & Nicole – No One Makes Love like You/Niemand liebt so wie du
(composed by Ralph Siegel and Bernd Meinunger)
5. Elisabeth Andreassen & Tor Endresen- All over the World (MGP 15)
6. Olivia Newton-John & Cliff Richard- Suddenly (From Xanadu movie)
7. Timoteij Feat Alexander Rybak-Vända Med Vinden
8. Malena Ernman & Sarah Dawn Finer – Sancta Lucia (2013)
9. Jan Johansen & Jill Johnson- Let it be me
10. Anita Skorgan Med Jahn Teigen- Friendly
If you know of some other Eurovision duets, let us know in the comments,
Footnote: When putting this Top 10 together I realised that just one artist that actually technically should not be on the list, as they have not appeared on a Eurovision Song Contest stage, Who is that?
