Shirley Clamp - she is a schlager-diva with a difference. Way back in 2001 shirley sang in Eurovision Song Contest as a backing singer/dancer to Helena Paparizou (greek swede). This appearance lead to her Melodifestivalen debut singing 'Mr Memory' in Melodifestivalen 2003, this song did not qualify for the final. This did not stop 'Mr Memory' becoming a schlager classic followed by her Melodifestivalen anthem's
'Min karlek' & 'Att alska dig' both sung in swedish these tunes are pure schlager perfection.
They finished in 4th place in 2004 & 2005.
For Melodifestivalen 2011 Shirley has formed a new pop schlager band called Shirley's Angels they are made up of two former Schlager backing singers ( not unlike Shirl in Eurovision 2003 ) The three-some will sing 'I through it was forever' on saturday in Linkoping. The song has the incredible line-up of Alexander Bard, Booby Ljunggren & Henril Wikstrom.
...this all adds up to a Schlager historical Masterpiece & performance, for certain. 2011 really is turning into the Return to Schlager year- with Jenny Silver, Sanna Nielsen & now Shirley with her angels. - See them in action during rehearsals for the semi final
