Although the closing date for the cover2cover singing competition is only the 30th of October, we would like people to enter as soon as possible. Several entries are ready to be filmed and send to us, but TONY OLSEN from Denmark has already entered. Here are some details about him and his entry. We will only start publishing the actual entries once we have like 10 or so and then do them day by day.
My name is Tony Olsen. I am 48 years old, and live in a small city, Grindsted, in Denmark. I started singing at an early age. When I was 12 years old, I came 3rd in my very first talent competition with “Det’ lige det”, the 1984 Eurovision entry from HOT EYES for Denmark. Since then, I’ve been a huge Eurovision fan. I’ve taken part in a lot of talent contests, coming both 1st, 2nd and 3rd. I write my own songs, and I play keyboard, organ and guitar. I’ve been singing in a local band and in different choirs.I was in Stockholm, when Denmark and The Olsen Brothers won the Eurovision Song Contest with FLY ON THE WINGS OF LOVE and of course I was also in Parken, when Denmark hosted the contest.
Stefan Borsch covered the 1984 Eurovision entry from Denmark in Swedish as DET AR JU DIG JAG GAR OCH VANTAR PA.
Hot eyes (Kirsten & Soren) who represented Denmark 3 times at Eurovision (1984, 1985 and 1988) covered the 1986 Eurovision entry from Germany in Danish as VAEK MIG OM TUSIND AR.
