Anders Frandsen

Anders Frandsen (December 8 1960 - January 1 2012) was a Danish musician, singer, actor and TV presenter.

During the 80s Anders appeared in many theatre performances. Later he became a TV presenter on Danish Kanal 2, alongside Camilla Miehe-Renard.

In 1991 he really broke through after winning the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix (the Danish national final for the Eurovision Song Contest) with the song Lige Der Hvor Hjertet Slår. The song didn't do well at the 1991 ECS, placing only 19th with only 8 points. That didn't hurt his popularity however, and the following year at the Danish national final, he was the host.

He then became a TV host on TV3 for the next few years. He appeared on lots of shows like Knald eller Fald (a dating programme), Stjerneskud (a talent competition for look-alikes), and also presented the network's morning TV. In 1997, he slowly disappeared from TV again.

He later resurfaced at the Danish national final in 2001, presenting one of the songs, and also guest-starred in an episode of Ørnen (a Danish TV series) in 2004. In 2005 he guest-starred in an episode of the Danish TV show Twist & Shout, on TV2 Charlie.
