Birthe Kjær (born in Aarhus on 1 September 1948) is a Danish singer who began her career in the late 1960s. Kjær had made previous bids to represent Denmark in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1980, 1986 and 1987, before being chosen in 1989 with the cabaret-style song "Vi maler byen rød" (We paint the town red). Her performance in Lausanne earned the song a third place that year.
She hosted the Danish national contest in 1990. She was unsuccessful in her bid to represent Denmark again in 1991 with "Din musik, min musik".
In June 2004, her single with Safri Duo "Hvor' vi fra?" (the Denmark national football team's anthem for the 2004 UEFA European Football Championship) achieved a gold record with 4,900 copies sold.
Kjær hosted the Danish final to pick the 2009 Danish entry for the Eurovision Song Contest Final on 31 January 2009.
