Remee (born Mikkel Johan Imer Sigvardt on November 8, 1974) is a Danish producer, composer and songwriter.[1]

Career[edit]

Throughout his career Remee has written more than 60 hits around the world and has sold over 25 million records. He has co-written several songs with Thomas Troelsen.

In 2003, he helped write Jamelia's international hit "Superstar", which was originally released by Danish singer Christine Milton, and won him a British Ivor Novello Award.

In 2005, Remee and Nicolai Seebach and Rasmus Seebach composed the tribute song for the victims of the Boxing Day Tsunami. Remee, along with several Danish celebrities, performed the song "Hvor små vi er". The song went 13 times platinum and raised more than 3 million Danish kroner (500,000 US dollars) for the tsunami victims.

In 2008 and 2009, he was one of the three original judges with Thomas Blachman and Lina Rafn searching for talent in the Danish version of the popular TV-show X-Factor.[2] In addition, he co-wrote the German entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2008, "Disappear", performed by No Angels. Remee returned as a judge for the third season, while Blachman and Rafn left the judging panel, along with original host Lise Rønne. Remee was then joined on the panel by Soulshock and Pernille Rosendahl. Due to wanting to focus on his career, Remee did not return for season 4. In June 2013, it was confirmed that Remee was in talks to return for the seventh season of X Factor. On 11 September, it was confirmed that Remee would return as a judge for the seventh season of X Factor, replacing Anne Linnet. He joined fellow original judges Thomas Blachman and Lina Rafn, who replaced Ida Corr.
