Kathrine Strugstad - Velvet Blue

Kathrine is an up and coming singer from Oslo, Norway and has appeared in a number of stage shows in Norway, including "Evita" and "Grease". She is currently recording her debut album, and was a participant in this years Norsk Melodi Grand Prix - Norway's version of Making Your Mind Up. Her entry, "Velvet Blue", sung in English, made the final 8, but did not make it through to the final 4.

"Velvet Blue" is a haunting dance/pop track, and was co-written by a Norwegian with the lyrics by Gerald James Borg, a Maltese guy who has written a few of Malta's Eurovision entries in the past. It would have been interesting to if Kathrine would have fared any better in Kiev if the Norwegian public had chosen Kathrine over the eventual winners, glam-rock band Wig Wam.

I haven't heard anything else of Kathrine's material yet, but if it's as good as "Velvet Blue", I'll soon let you know...
