LET IT BE ME – JAN JOHANSEN & JILL JOHNSON

JAN JOHANSEN (who represented Sweden at the 1995 Eurovision song contest) and JILL JOHNSON (who represented Sweden at the 1998 Eurovision song contest) teamed up to cover a song composed by Gilbert Becaud LET IT BE ME. Jan and Jill sing it in English. It is the 12 song in our project where we highlight Eurovision stars covering well-known NON EUROVISION songs.

 

SPOTLIGHT ON EUROVISION COMPOSERS – BOBBY LJUNGGREN, HAKAN ALMQVIST & INGELA FORSMAN

The trio of Bobby Ljunggren, Hakan Almqvist and Ingela Forsman wrote the song  KARLEKEN TILL DEJ for ROBERT RANDQUIST in 1997.

A year later the three wrote KARLEKEN AR for Jill Johnson and she represented Sweden that year at the Eurovision song contest.

Interesting that both songs are about KARLEKEN

TOP 10 EUROVISION ARTISTS DUETS

By Steve Humphreys (Australia)

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?

 that’s Timoteij. I think this is okay as I recon they will make it to Eurovision one year in the not too distant future.(fingers crossed) (also the fantastic Sarah Dawn Finer made it as an interval act in Malmo)
