Lise Haavik

People all over the world often have a hard time separating the Scandinavian countries, and honestly, who can blame them when we have people like Lise Haavik, who was born and raised in northern Norway, moved to Denmark to study economics, formed a band and a marriage with Danish artist John Hatting (against her father's better judgement, mind you), tried out for the Danish Eurovision ticket a couple of times and finally won the right to represent Denmark, when the competition was held in Norway of all places, with a song and a performance borrowing heavily from a previous Swedish entry?

Set in the world of Danish "happy-schlager", what was the road that led her to this point, what happened to Lise and John's marriage and artistic cooperation, what are Lise's further attempts to reach the Eurovision and why does the classic Danish song "Under stjernerne på himlen" with Tommy Seebach keep recurring during this interview, despite having nothing to do with neither Lise nor John? Or has it?
