Tell us a little about yourself... where were you born, where did you grow up, married with children?

I'm a 23 year old girl from Norway. I'm a very spontaneous person and I love to travel. Moved out from my parents' house as a 16 year old, and has since been living in Norway, England and Denmark. I'm working with horses for a living, and music is my escape. Single and no children.

Do you remember the first CD/cassette (or vinyl) you bought?

Well.. I was a HUGE Spice Girls fan as a kid. No need to say more. Hahaha!

What are your favourite genres and eras of music?

I don't have a particular favourite genre or era, but I mostly listen to pop acoustics, folk, indie etc. depending on my mood.

You have done consistently well in Smule competitions - including winning a version of the X-Factor... how do you think those competitions compare to Vocal Edge, and what advice would you give our contestants to do well?

XF was my very first Smule competition, and I learned a lot about layering and group songs. Vocal Edge was my second contest, and it was a big achievement for me to get as far as I did! The whole competition was so well-organized and professionally done. Not even to mention original! It was a lot of hard work, but because of VE, I felt like I grew as a singer!

You were a coach last season - did you enjoy it and why?

First off, the auditions honestly drove me nuts! Haha! So many people auditioning, and I broke more than one pair of headsets at that point. 😬 The team building, coaching and judging itself was awesome, and very inspirational!

Who is your vocal inspiration?

Jasmine Thompson, Lana Del Rey, Birdy.. Too many to mention. 󾍕

One final thing... boys or girls?

Neither. I'll rather pick men. 󾌴󾌺󾌴
