#BIRTHDAY: Anja Nissen is 25 today

If you were representing a country at Eurovision, other than the one you were born in, how would you decide which one to choose? Maybe it’s where your family came from originally.

Today’s birthday girl Anja Nissen is Australian by birth, but her parents hail from Denmark. She went through the now well-trodden route of big TV talent shows, and then found herself in 2017 in a provincial Danish town one February evening beating nine other acts. She then went to Kyiv, scraped through a semi-final, and then finished 20th in the big Grand Final. She was actually up against another Australian in the final, and that pesky Victorian beat her New South Welshness. Undeterred by being beaten by a fellow countryman, she saw sense and moved to the US. Not bad for a girl from Winmalee.
