The group Charmed made their debut in the Norwegian national final of the Eurovision Song Contest with the song "My Heart Goes Boom", written by Morten Henriksen and Tore Madsen. Charmed, three girls in their mid-twenties, already had vast experience from various aspects of the entertainment industry.
The members were Oddrun Valestrand, Lise Monica Nygård, Hanne Kristine Haugsand; the group was a result of the three girls' common passion for music. Valestrand is a professional dancer, and an all-round performer. She is also a competent violinist. She has performed in numerous plays and musicals, and has previously worked both as a stunt-woman and a model. Nygård has a thorough musical education. She writes her own lyrics, and has choreographed a number of stage shows. She has won the title "Norwegian champion of Freestyle/Disco dance" two years running. Haugsand, the youngest, is like the other two a trained dancer as well as a singer, and has in addition considerable experience as a costume designer. Hanne currently works as a vocal instructor and is a profound piano player. The members of Charmed had three very different personalities with their own characteristic approach to and individual experience from show business. Together they formed a band of musical depth, which was exciting and of high quality.
