Who are KEiiNO?
KEiiNO is a group made up of Sámi rapper and joiker Fred-René Buljo, and Norwegian singers Tom Hugo Hermansen and Alexandra Rotan. The latter are no strangers to Melodi Grand Prix, as they both appeared in the 2018 edition of the contest, with Alexandra finishing in the superfinal alongside Stella Mwangi. The trio created KEiiNO towards the end of 2018, specifically for Melodi Grand Prix.
Norway debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1960, and have won the contest three times – in 1985, 1995 and 2009. The country has the dubious record of finishing last the most times, eleven in total, and have received nul points four times. Norway last won the contest in 2009 when Alexander Rybak broke all records with his song “Fairytale”. He scored 387 points in the final, receiving 16 sets of 12 points and scoring points from every country.
