She is the grand lady of the Danish music scene, but she sure took her sweet time to grace Eurovision with her presence. It wasn't from a lack of trying though, since she has seen the runner-up position in the the Danish Melodi Grand Prix more times than anyone should ever have to. When she finally won and got to represent her country in the Eurovision she did not disappoint, hauling both the composer, lyricist and conductor (!) up on stage to back her up when she finished third with the classic song "Vi maler byen rød".
