Fyr og Flamme
A musician and an actor with the same idea about catchy music with vibes back to the 1970s and ’80’s, and an appeal that spreads to several generations, that’s Fyr og Flamme.
This duo consist of musician Laurits Emanuel and actor Jesper Groth on vocal. In the summer 2020, they broke through with their debut single Menneskeforbruger, which was quickly followed by Kamæleon. Both became hits. When they won Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2021 with the song Øve Os På Hinanden, they had another hit on their CV. In fact, that song became the first Danish Eurovision entry since 2012 to top the charts before the Eurovision Song Contest.
Laurits released a solo album six years ago, and Jesper is a well known actor known from among others the TV series Sygeplejeskolen.
At the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest, they finished 11th in the semi-final, and as such just outside the list of the 10 qualifiers. Had it been televoting only, they would have qualified as they placed them 7th.
