Hanne Krogh Sundbø was only 14 years old when she recorded her first record in 1970. The next year Hanne
won Melodi Grand Prix in Norway. This took her to Eurovision Song Contest 1971 in Dublin, when she hoped to follow in Dana's (all kind of everything) footsteps from the previous year.
Singing a song 'Lyyken Er' ('Happiness is') see this a fantastic clip of this song, she came in 17th place. Next Hanne started up her acting career for a few years, up until 1978 when she returned to the studio to make her debut LP 'Hanne Krough' (see LP cover pic- even starting early' the flanno' shirt craze of late 80's!)
In 1984 she joined forces with Elisabeth Andreasson to form 'Bobbysocks' a new swing harmony pop duo. They sang 'La det swinge' in Melodi Grand Prix & went on to take home Norway's first ever Eurovision Song Contest victory of 1985. Now Bobbysocks are rumoured to make a comeback in Oslo 2010- Fingers crossed meanwhile 'Bobbysocks'
are our Schlager Hero's 6 from both Norway & Sweden- Hope to see the girls back together soon..
