Samir & Viktor were also the favourite of XTRA team. Our team placed Margaret second, closely followed by Mimi Werner. Tonight’s other winner, LIAMOO, placed only sixth.
Third time lucky for Samir & Viktor
Samir & Viktor finally managed to qualify direct to the final. The duo first took part in 2015 and they reached the final through the andra chansen. They finished eight in the final with “Groupie“.
They returned to the contest the year after with “Bada nakna”. Once again they got the second chance and qualified to the final from the andra chansen round. They finished last in the final.
