In 1996 she made it to the Eurovision Song Contest with the trio One More Time. Their song Den Vilda finished third. In 1998 she was back as a solo singer and accieved massive sucess with the song that has become somewhat of a classic by now; Avundsjuk.
In 2001 she took the trip abroad as she participated in the United Kingdom selection "A Song For Europe" with the song Men, which however came last. Two years later she tried again in home country Sweden, but failed to qualify for the final with Evig Kärlek. In 2005 her entry Håll Om Mig won the public televote, but did not score well among the juries sending Martin Stenmark to the Eurovision Song Contest instead. In 2007 she again suffered a downfall as her song Jag Måste Kyssa Dig lost in the second chance round not making it to the final of Melodifestivalen.
