ESC Covers and Eurovision South Africa asked 3 questions to the 3 girls who make up the group IN FUSION who will in the Norwegian Eurovision final. Here is the answers from Saima

1 – NORWAY – since you are Norwegian, what is your best highlight from a Norwegian entry?

– The Norwegian entry I remember the most, is from the year 2000.
“Charmed – My heart goes boom”
It’s not because it’s the best song I’ve heard in the contest, but it reminds me of my childhood. Something I really cherish! I was 10 at the time, and me and two of my friends used to record ourselves singing and dancing to this song.

2 – SWEDEN – since your composers are Swedish, what is your best highlight from a Swedish entry?

– Hmm…this one is tricky! Loreen’s performance with “Euphoria” from 2012 was amazing. But if we go back to the 70’s and 80’s and early 90’s, we have ABBA and Carola! I obviously don’t remember this, but I consider them highlights. Waterloo, Främling, Fångad av en stormvind! Songs people still know and sing.

3 – EUROVISION – now the same question of a Eurovision entry from any country but Sweden or Norway

– Conchita Wurst will always be memorable. A reminder that if you set your mind to it, you can do anything.
And who doesn’t remember the Russian babushkas?
And of course we have Céline Dion from 1988. Nobody knew who she was, and look at her now. One of the greatest singers we have!

Thank you so much for this – we agree 90% with you.
