You were part of the Norwegian backing singers for Eurovision in 2013 and 2016, how was that experience and what do you remember the most from them?
That was a lot of fun and I remember all the amazing people I got to know. It is two weeks of FUN!

You are one of the participants of MGP 2018. How did it all begin?
I met my producer (Johan Larson) in his studio to make some new songs, and he played me some old song sketches. One of these sketches became “light me up”.
“Light me up” is the title of your song, and it’s written by you, Johan Larsson and
Emilie Adams. How was it to work with them?
I loved working with them and me and Johan already have several songs ready for release.

What’s the story behind the song?
It’s about not wanting the party to end.

Describe the song with 4 words:
As Johan says: Party, Party Party, (Party) or as I say: Happy, Danseable, Positive, Urban pop

What can we expect to see on stage for the performance?
That’s a secret :)

The fact that it’s just a big celebration of music.

The reputation Eurovision have in the music industry. At least in Norway.
