Hero, Baby

Hero, baby
La la la la la
la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
la la la la
La la la la la

I’m scared of monsters who are hungry in the night
Young evil sailors, zombie ravers want a bite

When the light is falling
And the night is dark for all
I need a hero, want a hero
Who can guide me through the night

La la la la la la
I need a
I need a hero, baby
La la la la la la
I need a
I need a hero, baby
La la la la la la
I need a
I need a hero, baby
Can’t see the light, it feels so right
I need a hero, baby

Da Da Dearpa
Getcha
Isen den slår sprækka
Når flamman står i taket e vi først i rekka
Ah, ah, superpow
Dugge tungt på ruta
Fyre ut av natta med et Damdam

La la la la la la
I need a
I need a hero, baby
La la la la la la
I need a
I need a hero, baby

When the night is dark and cold
Will you hear me when I call
I need a hero, want a hero
Who can save me when I fall

La la la la la la
I need a
I need a hero, baby
La la la la la la
I need a
I need a hero, baby
La la la la la la
I need a
I need a hero, baby
Can’t see the light, it feels so right
I need a hero, baby

All the monsters here
They can’t see your fear
Cause a hero won’t back down
All the monsters here
They can’t see your fear
La la la la la la
I need a
I need a hero, baby

The trio, KEiiNO, is back for the third time, after they won the popular vote in Eurovision 2019 and came second in MGP 2021.

Is the third time the one to strike luck?

“We hope so! Its been a dream of ours to win Eurovision since we were children. And now we’re back with an energetic song that hopefully gets people to enjoy themselves. We’re excited,” said Keiino member, Alexandra Rotan.

Third semi-final, January 27 – KEiiNO: “Damdiggida”

Listen to, “Damdiggida”, on Spotify

Five years have passed since KEiiNO combined indigenous Norwegian melodies, joik and danceable pop for the first time, and the unique sound has gained a large international audience. Since KEiiNO won the hearts of viewers in Eurovision in 2019, they have released 28 songs, topped the charts, become radio favourites, won awards and been nominated for the Spellemann award.

Most of the trio’s 150 million plays on Spotify and YouTube come from abroad. KEiiNO has, among other things, toured Australia twice and played to large crowds in Europe several times.

For Alexandra, Fred and Tom Hugo, the Eurovision Song Contest is the European Pop Championship. When they suddenly had a song they thought would engage a lot of people, they wanted to make another attempt to take the victory home.

KEiiNO in MGP 2024

By Linda Karina Brandt, KEIiNO NEWS, January 5th, 2024

After KEiiNO reached 6th place in Eurovision 2019, the speculations have gone on yearly, wether or not they would participate in Melodi Grand Prix again. Every year, fans have speculated, hoped, crossed their fingers and they were THRILLED when the announcement came in 2021, that KEiiNO would participate that year, with their amazing song, Monument, where during the filming of the music video, in Norway’s most beautiful places, Fred slipped and nearly fell off a mountain. A big scare, which we all didn’t know about until a few months later, when it was revealed in an article. Thank goodness he “only” hurt his head, and it didn’t go worse than that.

As all fans know, in the MGP finale, Monument came in second after “Fallen Angel” with Tix. Fans were bummed, disappointed and some also angry, although we have to admit that Fallen Angel WAS a good song, and Tix presented it beautifully at Eurovision that year. I think it grew on all of us, once the disappointment had settled.

Since 2021, fans have again speculated, yearly, wether or not KEiiNO would join MGP again. In 2022, no. in 2023, no. but around new year 2024, little hints in form of recap videos began showing on their instagram. Very soon fans picked up the hints and the theory of them joining THIS year was larger than the two years before. As the week went by, more and more hints, fans became more and more sure – in fact so sure that the KEiiNO Fan Group Official on Facebook, last night had a special balloon made for KEiiNO with, “good luck” printed on, for the fan group manager to hand to them at the MGP reveal today.

It was a very long hour from 12.50 and the news started, and when the participants were presented one by one, from 13.00, but FINALLY all the fans’ hopes and expectations were fulfilled – KEiiNO was presented as participants, with their brand new single, “Damdiggida”, written by Alexander N. Olsson, Tom Hugo Hermansen, Alexandra Rotan, Jakob Redtzer, and Fred Buljo.

With this to look very much forward to, we wish KEiiNO all the best of luck in MGP 2024, can’t wait to see them perform again.

Alexandra Rotan (27) shares happy news with boyfriend Markus (29)

Aexandra Rotan (27) is a Norwegian artist, who has really shown that she is skilled and talented.
We know her best as the lead vocalist of the band “KEiiNO”, which back in 2019 won the Norwegian Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Spirit in the Sky”.
The song was a huge hit and in the Eurovision final, held in Tel Aviv, the band finished in sixth place.
In 2021, the band tried again with the song “Monument” but finished in second place behind artist TIX.
Alexandra impressed again when she participated in “Battle of the stars” in 2021. She then finished in second place, after Bjorn Tomren who won the title.
It was last year that the artist was able to reveal that life also smiled in private. Rotan confirmed that she had a boyfriend.
“Yes, I’ve got a boyfriend! I’m happy. Have no comment beyond that,” Rotan told Dagbladet.
Alexandra’s chosen one is guitarist Markus Maaren Bastøe (29).
Alexandra Rotan reveals new step in their relationship.
The KEiiNO artist has until now lived at Eidsvoll Verk, but now Rotan announces that the couple is moving to the capital together, she tells Eidsvoll Ullensaker blad.
Thus, the 27-year-old has put her apartment up for sale.
– It is quite sad as I have enjoyed it immensely, and have spent time and effort to make the apartment gorgeous if I dare to say so myself. But then my boyfriend is gorgeous too, and he drew the longest straw,” she told the newspaper.
Alexandra adds that her heart will always belong to Råholt, but that “it will be very exciting to try out living in the city”.
Lovely Alexandra! Congratulations and good luck with your move.

Last year, artist and KEiiNO star Alexandra Rotan, 27, shared the pleasant news that she had a boyfriend.
“yes, I’ve got a boyfriend! I’m happy. Have no comment beyond that,” Rotan told Dagbladet, while choosing to keep her chosen one secret.
Later that year, however, she revealed that it was guitarist Markus Maaren Bastøe (29) who had captured her heart.
To Eidsvoll Ullensaker Blad, Rotan can now reveal that they are taking their relationship a step further and moving to the capital together. Until now, she has lived at Eidsvoll Verk, but now the apartment has been put up for sale.
– It is quite sad as I have enjoyed it immensely and have spent time and effort to make the apartment gorgeous if I dare to say so myself. But then my boyfriend is gorgeous too, and he drew the longest straw,” she told the newspaper.
The 27-year-old does not hide the fact that her heart will always belong to Råholt, but that she thinks “it will be very exciting to try out living in the city”.
Earlier this year, Rotan revealed to Se og hør, that she met her boyfriend when he was a guitarist in KEiiNO.
“I noticed right away that he’s the right one,” she said.

Insomnia

We don’t need to sleep
Light is all we need
You can take my breath away
You don’t have to fade
We can stay the same
Long as we can stay awake

All the colors in the sky got me hypnotized
And the light in your eyes

In our insomnia
Dreaming of a lost utopia
We could live forever – never die
(Joik)
So close to heaven – I need you by my side
Our Insomnia
Dancing in a light euphoria
We could live forever – never die
(Joik)
So close to heaven – I need you by my side
In the

Endless summer night
See the embers fly
C’mon set my heart on fire
Stay forever young
In the midnight sun
C’mon we could still get higher

All the colors in the sky got me hypnotized
And the light in your eyes

In our insomnia
Dreaming of a lost utopia
We could live forever – never die
(Joik)
So close to heaven – I need you by my side
Our Insomnia
Dancing in a light euphoria
We could live forever – never die

So close to heaven – I need you by my side
In me

I can feel the night grow colder
Time is running out
In insomnia
Insomnia

Tell me we could still be stronger
And the night is young
In insomnia
Insomnia

Fade Out

They will teach you how to be a girl
About Jesus and how sinners burn
They own half your lovin’ city
Wanna fade out
I just fade out

Fade out now
Fade out now

They tell lies about a Nordic race
It’s just politics to kill all gays
When free speech is cutting of my head
Wanna fade out
I just fade out

Fade out now
Fade out again

Tell me: Who needs police
That let nazis walk our streets
I’m so angry
I can’t sleep
I’m so angry
But I fade out

Fade out now
Fade out again

Fade out again
fade out again

Fade out again

You were my faded summer nights

Your hazel eyes

Too bright in the moonlight

Dazzling

Go geasseiját láhkonit, de mun áibbašan

Mu váibmui don leat bisánan, muhto lei go niehku

You – me

So high

Dreaming by the ocean

You

You were midnight marina

You were a heartbreak

Still a heartbreak
