19 March – Float with me, let everything turn into fire

Norwegian coat of arms

Your eyes are not deceiving you today, and I’ve not got any madder. But you wait ages for a Norwegian birthday, and then two come along at once. This song didn’t quite finish as well as the song by Åse Kleveland, but in this cut and thrust world of semi-finals, today’s birthday girl Christine Gulbrandsen managed a 13th place.

This was the last time we heard Norwegian in a Eurovision Song Contest.

Christine is 32 today.

Gratulerer med dagen, Christine!
