Merethe Trøan

Merethe Trøan (born May 19 1970, Trondheim) is a Norwegian singer, best known for her participation in the 1992 Eurovision Song Contest.

In her teens, Merethe Trøan and her sister were members of vocal group Pastel together with two brothers, not related to the Trøans. In 1985, Pastel took part in the Norwegian Eurovision Song Contest selection, Melodi Grand Prix, with the song Ring Ring Ring finishing 3rd. Pastel released one self-titled LP before disbanding. In 1992, Trøan returned to MGP as a solo artist, and this time was successful with the song Visjoner being chosen as the Norwegian entry for the 37th Eurovision Song Contest, held in Malmö, Sweden on 9 May. Visjoner" did not prove very successful, managing only 18th place of 23 entries, although Merethe Trøan's performance is remembered for a spontaneous giggle midway through the song.

In 1993 Merethe tried again to represent Norway but came only 6th with Din Egen Stjerne.

Merethe Trøan subsequently took up work as a voice actor, her credits including the Norwegian versions of Disney's Beauty and the Beast and The Jungle Book 2.
