They represented Norway in the Eurovision Song Contest 1991 with the song Mrs.

Thompson. They were the first and until now the only Norwegian entry that wasn't chosen through the Melodi Grand Prix. The Norwegian television was confident in a high placing with this band, but they turned out to be wrong as the band finished only 17th. Eurovision Song Contest 1991 - Rome Entry for Norway Performer: Just 4 Fun Song title: Mrs. Thompson Song writer(s): P.G.

Roness, Kaare Skevik Song composer(s): Dag Kolsrud Sang in Position: 14 Final Position: 17 Total Points: 14 The 1991 Eurovision Song Contest was supposed to be held in the seaside resort San Remo which is known for its annual festival of Italian music, but host broadcaster RAI moved it to Rome at a very late stage. The moving of the show meant that RAI was not completely ready for the show and on the day of the contest, there were still works on the set to be done. For the second time since the very first Eurovision Song Contest in 1956, the Netherlands decided to withdraw from the contest due to the country's Rememberance Day. Malta took the open spot which meant that the country was back for the first time since 1975.

The winner of the previous year and the co-host of this year, Toto Cutugno, had big difficulties with the pronunciation of the song titles and names of the artists and conductors. The other host was Gigliola Cinquetti, Italy's first Eurovision winner from 1964. The postcards to present the different national singers were very special this year: the singers were asked to sing a known Italian song which would then be used as a short clip for the postcard. Yugoslavia's entry Brazil by Baby Doll only managed to get one single point from Malta but the extravagant performance created a cult following among Eurovision Song Contest fans. At the end of the voting procedure, both Sweden and France had 146 points each. Because of that the the newly-created rule of 1989 was put in effect giving the victory to Swedish entrant Carola who got more '10 points votes' than France.

Both Sweden and France had an equal amount of '12 point votes.' Carola had already participated in 1983 with the song Främling which ended up 3rd in Munich. She had already tried to enter the 1990 contest in Zagreb but lost out in the Swedish national heats. In 2006 though, she would re-appear on the Eurovision stage in Athens, performing Invincible which came 5th. Read more on Last.fm.
