"Mrs. Thompson" was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1991, performed in Norwegian by Just 4 Fun. The song remains unique as the only time to date that the Norwegian entry was not chosen through the Melodi Grand Prix - the four members of the group having been selected internally. The song was performed fourteenth on the night, following Denmark's Anders Frandsen with "Lige der hvor hjertet slår" and preceding Israel's Duo Datz with "Kan". At the close of voting, it had received 14 points, placing 17th in a field of 22.

dbo:abstract
  • "Mrs. Thompson" was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1991, performed in Norwegian by Just 4 Fun. The song remains unique as the only time to date that the Norwegian entry was not chosen through the Melodi Grand Prix - the four members of the group having been selected internally. The song is an up-tempo number, with the group singing about - and to - a middle-class woman who is identified only as "Mrs. Thompson". She is described as working very hard for a boss who "believes in overtime" and having a predictable weekly routine. She has a "dream" throughout the song, in which she is urged to take control of her own life. The group then introduces her as an "everyday hero", suggesting that her monotonous life is more valuable than it might appear. The song was performed fourteenth on the night, following Denmark's Anders Frandsen with "Lige der hvor hjertet slår" and preceding Israel's Duo Datz with "Kan". At the close of voting, it had received 14 points, placing 17th in a field of 22. It was succeeded as Norwegian representative at the 1992 contest by Merethe Trøan with "Visjoner". (en)
