In 1977 in London she sang “Casanova”, finishing 14th. Two years later, in Jerusalem, year 1979, she had a bit more success, lifting her song “Oliver” to 11th place. Back in England, she returned to the Eurovision stage in company with her - at that time - husband, Jahn Teigen. She played the piano, and they both sang “Adieu” - perhaps knowing what was about to happen in their private life - which was voted to a 12th position in Harrogate. She and Jahn Between them appeared at every single Eurovision Song Contest final from 1977 til 1983 except 1980, an impressive 6 times in 7 years.

Before she knew it, she landed multiple appearances on the hit television show “Melodi Grand Prix” seven times between 1976 and 1985. On 17 November 2001 she appeared on the Norwegian talkshow “Den store klassefesten” (The Big Class Reunion).
