It’s been just over a year since the world were introduced to the mysterious Subwoolfer at Melodi Grand Prix 2022. Having qualified automatically for the final, rumours immediately began to circulate about who might be underneath the masks. Wonder no more! Following their performance at this year’s final for Melodi Grand Prix, Subwoolfer were unmasked as Ben Adams and Gaute Ormåsen.
Who are the real Keith and Jim?
Ben Adams is best known as a member of boyband A1, who found success in the late 90s and early 00s in the UK, before reuniting in 2010 to take part in Melodi Grand Prix with the song “Don’t Wanna Lose You Again”. They placed second in the final. Since then, Adams has primarily worked as a songwriter, as well as appearing in both British and Norwegian reality TV shows and on stage.
Gaute Ormåsen found fame in 2003 after taking part in the Norwegian version of Idol, where he placed second. Since then, he has released six albums and had a recurring role in drama Hotel Caesar. He is also an alum of 2010’s Melodi Grand Prix, where he participated with “Synk eller svøm”. He reached the final of the competition, but did not make the top four.
What’s next for Subwoolfer?
Since their appearance at Eurovision 2022, Subwoolfer have continued to release music. Their songs have included “Melocoton (The Donka Donk Song)”, “Howling” and their Yuletide single “Having Grandma Here for Christmas”. Their reveal also came alongside a new single, “Worst Kept Secret.”
However, just because Subwoolfer have now been unmasked, it doesn’t mean that their mission is over! They have already been confirmed as an interval act for Söngvakeppnin 2023. The end of the music video for “Worst Kept Secret” also leaves us with a promise:
“Now this is not the end.
It is not even the beginning of the end.
But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”
