In 1996, Jonna and Erin started to conquer
the Finnish pop world with their vivacious dance duo.
Singles like "Oot Kuin Karkkia Mulle" (You are like a
candy for me), "TeflonLove", "Lä lä lä"
and particularly "Rakastuin Mä Luuseriin" (I fell
in love with a loser) raised the duo quickly to the top.
The Estonians' version of that last one ("Armastan ma
luuserid") was even chosen to Estonia's most popular song
in 1996(!). Nylon Beat's next albums were "Satasen laina"
(Loan of 100 Marks) in 1997 and "Nylon Moon" in January
On Valentine's Day 1998, the girls entered the
Finnish selection for ESC with "Umm mam maa", which became
the favourite of the OGAE jury and got the 3rd place in
total. In 1999, their new album "Valehtelija" (Lier) rose
directly to the top of the Finnish list. The song "Viimeinen"
(The last one) had a successful video and competed with
Marjorie for OGAESC 99. In 2000, Nylon Beat entered the Finnish
ESC selection again with "Viha ja rakkaus" (Hate and love),
finishing 4th. Again they did not make it for SCC 2000
either. But now, at last, the girl-power duo with nasal voices
will be representing Finland in an OGAE competition, with a
song from their new album "Demo".
