Simone Egeriis (born January 28, 1992), better known as simply Simone, is a Danish pop singer. She was born and raised in Slagelse, Denmark. She is known in Denmark for winning the Danish TV talent show Scenen er din ('The Stage is Yours') in the category Junior Singing. She has since released three studio albums - her debut was called Vindens Farver or Colours of the Wind, the song from Disney's Pocahontas, with which she won Scenen er Din. She also plays the violin and the piano.
Simone's mother and father are divorced and she lives with her mother and her older sister Stephanie in Slagelse, where her father also lives. She started singing at a very young age and went on to do childrens' musicals. At age nine she began in the childrens' gospel choir 'Himmelsus'.
Scenen er din
When she first went on 'The Stage is Yours' the judges totally loved her and she got top marks from them. She won the first season of the show in September in the category junior singing with the song Vindens Farver in the final.
Simone's first studio album Vindens Farver was named after the winning song from Scenen er Din and is her most successful album. It included songs only from Walt Disney Pictures, both in Danish and English. Egeriis' second studio album was On a Night Like This, a holiday album which contained traditional Christmas songs both in Danish and English. In November 2006, she released the album Dreams Do Come True, being her first album with exclusively English language tracks.
Dansk Melodi Grand Prix
Simone also took part in the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2013 with the song "Stay Awake" reaching the Superfinal (Final 3) stage. She came third with Emmelie de Forest carrying the title with "Only Teardrops", who later went on to win Eurovision that year.
Simone returned to Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2016, with the song "Heart Shaped Hole" where she came in third place after reaching the Superfinal stage.
