Niclas Lundin (Scandinavian Songs) and Maria Marcus (BMG Chrysalis) have together with the Belgian songwriters Patrick Hamilton and Vincent Pierin penned the winner song “Building An Aeroplane” for the Norwegian Idol, which was performed in the final in Oslo on December 16th by both finalist, Jenny Langlo and Vegard Leite.
Jenny won with 52% of the public votes. During the weekend her version of the song reached the no 1 position on the iTunes chart in Norway, replacing Coldplay´s “Paradise”. Both versions were released by Universal Music.
Niclas and Maria have scored a Norwegian “double-value” as their song “Another Heartache”, co-written with the performing artist Rikke Lie (Universal) will be one entry in MGP 2012, the Norwegian selection finals for Eurovision Song Contest. The song competes in Larvik on January 28th.
The married couple Niclas and Maria also have one entry in the Swedish Eurovision selection as previously mentioned. Their song “Aldrig Aldrig” will compete on February 11th, performed by Andreas Lundstedt (ex-Alcazar), signed to EMI. In the same semfinal Niclas is also represented as writer, together with Anton Malmberg Hård af Segerstad, with the entry “Det går för långsamt”. Artist is newcomer Mimi Oh (Lionheart).
