Now we are with the last of the three IN FUSION girls, Miriam and her answers to the questions from ESC Covers and Eurovision South Africa.
1 – NORWAY – since you are Norwegian, what is your best highlight from a Norwegian entry. You could say any artist and this or that song and the reason why
My Norwegian highlight will have to be the semi-finals of Melodi Grand Prix 2011, when the metalband Keep of Kalessin and Alexander Rybak got together and performed “The Divine Land” during the break. I was blown away by the mix of genres and how good they sounded together! I really wish they would get together and do more exciting stuff together! I would definitely buy that record.
2 – SWEDEN – since your composers are Swedish, what is your best highlight from a Swedish entry – the same as with Norway
Sweden have had so many great  entries! BUT my favorite is kind of a guilty pleasure. Im almost embarrassed to say, being a rockchick and all, but I used to dance and sing to this one as a child. I was`t even born when this aired (1984), but Herreys – Diggi-loo diggi-ley was stuck on my mind for a while. So I have to say, it is one of my favorites because I`ve heard it for so long! 
Other then that Loreens – Euphoria is my all time favorite Swedish hit song of this era! 
3 – EUROVISION – now the same question of a Eurovision entry from any country but Sweden or Norway
How can I possibly chose one!? There are so many amazing memories. 
I simply fell in love with last years entry from Belgium, Laura Tesoro with “What`s The Pressure”! Such a catchy song, and Laura was just super-cute with her cool choreography !
But I have to chose Conchita – Rise Like a Phoenix(2014) as the most memorable moment in ESC-history for me! Hands down!
Miriam, thank you for your answers, I too love DIGGI LOO DIGGI LEY and last year when Eurovision was in Stockholm, I took an Afrikaans cover of the song for Richard Herrey who is the CEO of Hard rock cafe there. And Danne was with us at the event, so ask him about it.
