Danmarks Radio invited them to enter the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix in 2001. They won with their song Der står et billede af dig på mit bord (literal translation, "There's a picture of you on my desk"). Together with female singer, Signe Svendsen, who had joined the group, they performed the song (translated into English as "Never Ever Let You Go") at the Eurovision Song Contest 2001 and received 177 points ranked second out of 23 entries.
