Meet Subwoolfer, Norway representatives in Eurovision 2022

This year Norway has chosen Subwoolfer as its representatives on Eurovision 2022 that will take place in Turin this month with the song “Give That Wolf A Banana”. But who are Subwoolfer? In this article you will have the opportunity to know more about Norway’s duo for Eurovision 2022.

About Subwoolfer

Subwoolfer is a band made up of two yellow wolves who call themselves Keith and Jim; accompanied on stage by an astronaut and three dancers with yellow suits and yellow faces. Their true identity? An absolute secret!

According to their own members, Subwoolfer is a group that started on the moon 4.5 billion years ago and claim to be the most successful band in our galaxy. They also claim that on 20 June 69, the “prophet Neil”, for Neil Armstrong, fell from the sky and promised them that he would make them stars on Earth. This prophet told them that he would come looking for them when they wrote the best song in the universe, but as he has not reappeared so far, they took over DJ Astronaut and have come to conquer us all.

The Norwegian media and Eurofans are behind thousands of speculations to guess who is hiding behind these intergalactic wolves. Some of the theories that sound the loudest are:

Erik and Kriss: this is a Norwegian rap group. They became well known in 2004 with the song “Bærumsgrammatikk” resulting in a first album in 2007.

Another theory points to the duo Ylvis, formed by Vegard and Bård Ylvisaker. This theory is based on the fact that they really are brothers, their predilection for animal taste and their bets with fun and catchy songs.

But there is one theory that seems to take the lead: that the duo is made up of Gaute Ormåsen and Ben Adams, a Norwegian media outlet pointed to them, when the back up of the Eurovision performance was being recorded at H3 Arena, after winning the MGP. Checking the cars in the area, they found a Volkswagen in Ormåsen’s name and a Porche that was registered to Ben Adams.

Lyrics

Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Not sure I told you, but I really like your teeth
That hairy coat of yours with nothing underneath
Not sure you have a name, so I will call you Keith
Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
See where you’re going, but I don’t know where you’ve been
Is that saliva or blood drippin’ off your chin?
If you don’t like the name Keith I’ma call you Jim
Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

And before that wolf eats my grandma
Give that wolf a banana
Give that wolf
And before that wolf eats my grandma
Give that wolf a banana
Give that wolf
Give that wolf (Banana)

Yum, yum, yum, yum-yum-yum
Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum-yum-yum
Yum, yum, yum, yum-yum-yum
Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum-yum-yum
Banana

I like the scent of every meal on your breath
That hunger in you, I’m in danger now, I guess
Let’s go to grandma’s, you say grandma tastes the best
Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

And before that wolf eats my grandma
Give that wolf a banana
Give that wolf
(I want your grandma, yum, yum)
And before that wolf eats my grandma
Give that wolf a banana
Give that wolf, Give that wolf
Someone give that wolf a banana

Yum, yum, yum, yum-yum-yum
Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum-yum-yum
Someone give that wolf a banana
Yum, yum, yum, yum-yum-yum
Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum-yum-yum
Someone give that wolf a banana

Ba-na-na, Ba-na-na-na-na
Ba-na-na, Ba-na-na-na-na

And before that wolf eats my grandma
Give that wolf a banana
Give that wolf
(I want your grandma, yum, yum)
Someone give that wolf a banana
And before that wolf eats my grandma
Give that wolf a banana
Give that wolf
Give that wo-o-olf

Yum, yum, yum, yum-yum-yum
Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum-yum-yum
Someone give that wolf a banana
Yum, yum, yum, yum-yum-yum
Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum-yum-yum
Someone give that wolf a banana

Not sure I told you, but I really like your teeth
That hairy coat of yours with nothing underneath
Not sure you have a name, so I will call you Keith

Norway in Eurovision

Norway made its debut in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1960. The country has finished last more times than any other country, however, in the case of Jahn Teigen who scored zero points in 1978, it turned him into a star!

Norway has the dubious record of finishing last most times (11 in total), including scoring nul points on 4 occasions. On the other hand, Norway has won the contest 3 times and scored the biggest margin of victory ever in 2009.

Nora Brockstedt gave Norway its first top-five placing when the country debuted in 1960. She performed Voi Voi in London and finished in fourth place. Prior to the first Norwegian victory in 1985, the country had only once reached the top 5 in 1966. 10 years after Bobbysocks won with La Det Swinge in 1985, Secret Garden scored the second victory for Norway with Nocturne. The following year in Oslo, Norway finished second on home ground for the one and, to date, only time when Elisabeth Andreassen represented the country on home ground with the song I evighet.

Norway has finished last in every decade since the 1960s and more recently Norway finished last in Baku in 2012 with Stay performed by Tooji. However, it’s not all bad news: since the Semi-Finals were introduced, Norway has only failed to qualify for the final on 3 occasions.
