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)


In the run-up to the Norwegian selection and the duet between Tor and Elisabeth a song contender as both have been at Eurovision for Norway, it is time to listen to some of their previous songs. The covers of the two CD’s are sort of greatest hits that came out around the years they represented Norway and I got both personally from the artists at Eurovision. Their duet gets my vote for Norway 2015.



N R K, the Norwegian broadcaster, announced today the 11 songs for their selection for Vienna. It is a comeback for TOR ENDRESEN who has represented Norway before at Eurovision. I was playing with the idea to ask a very tough question and then discovered I do not even know the answer myself. Tor was in the Norwegian selection many years ago with a song called RADIO LUXEMBOURG. It did not win that year (I wanted to ask which year but then discovered I do not even know myself) but the song became a huge hit. The interesting aspect of this song is that it was composed by ROLF LOVLAND who wrote the 1985 and 1995 Eurovision winners and of course the world wise success YOU RAISE ME UP. So the easy question is, what is the song called that Tor had in the Eurovision – it is a famous city in the USA. This fits in well with his new song ALL OVER THE WORLD, so lets hope we get people all over the world entering our competition
