The Story Behind TIX - Norway 🇳🇴- Eurovision 2021

27 mar 2021
60 393 Áhorf

TIX will represent Norway with the song Fallen Angel at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam.
TIX has already been one of the biggest artist in his home country for many years.
But behind the success story that is spelled TIX lays a different tale of Andreas Haukeland, the man behind the trademarked head band, sunglasses and fake fur coat.
Diagnosed with OCD and tourettes syndrom, Andreas Haukeland built an armour around himself with the character of TIX.
Through his hits he wanted to finally become accepted and gather people. But after his big break and numerous top position on the charts, Andreas felt even more lonely and the darkness caught up with him
At this point he decided to put mental health on the agenda.
Now he wants to tell his story.

    • What is the problem? This is from a series ... The Story Behind. Where all the singers in ESC tell about themselves. We Norwegians grow up in a culture where we learn to be honest, no matter how painful and difficult the truth may be. I understand our honesty can be annoying to people who come from other cultures ... who embellish the truth.

  • Yeah, whatever, the song is really good, it has strong arrangements, it has that “it factor “ that makes you push the repeat button again and again but, the fact that his look is kind of ridiculous makes no sense with the amazing song. U don’t need to build an alter ego to show your true heart and art. Norway have time to change or at least, improve the staging because they choose a beautiful song.

    • The reason he is wearing a big coat, bandana and sunglasses is because its part of his character and has been since he started with music years ago, its also to hide his tics, so he dont have to worry about the tics in his eyes f.ex when he sings... its kind of an armour for him). He has said he has learned to control the tics especially when he is in the public.. but its strainful to control them so he probably feels better wearing his «armour» when he performs). He always wear a big coat, bandana and sunglasses when he is TIX. Its his signature/trademark. Tix is supposed to be «over the top» (with all the gold etc), completely opposite of what Andreas is (as he says in this video) Tix is outgoing and not afraid of anything, while Andreas is humble and wants to fit in. They have completely different views and values. Tix is his alternative way of facing the world.. Tix is in many ways the role model and the best buddy Andreas felt he needed during his upbringing. That is what he wants to be for others. His appearance isnt something he decided to suddenly create. He participated in MGP as Tix and thats how everyone in Norway knows him....why should he change for Eurovision just because some people are shallow and judge others by appearance? I bet there were a lot that said the same about Conchita Wurst, but that didnt stop Austria from winning. The tage is emphasizing the song, cause the song is about not being able to be with the one you love because of mental issues, and you feel you are not good enough. You want your inner demons to release you from the pain they are causing you. He is chained to those demons and cant get away from them. They are pulling him in different directions, He realize that he have to let the one he loves go because he doesnt want to drag her down in the darkness with him

  • his song has grown an INSANE amount for me, and the fact that he took something that caused a negative impact on his life as a kid (mainly because of other kids being jerks) and turned it around to something positive is so heartwarming to hear. it was strangely comforting hearing about his struggles with anxiety and loneliness as well, i really think that can help people feel like they aren't alone in those struggles.

    • Shame on YOU for making such an ignorant comment that shows what kind of a person you are. This is a presentation video, just as all the other contestants can make. Maybe you are a superficial person who dont want to get to know contestants, but most people like to know. What he talks about is relevant to who he is and his Eurovision song. Why do you think the contestants are participating?, To just perform and be quiet? Everyone wants attention for different reasons, of course. Tix has an mportant message in his song and wants people to connect with it and he shows that even if you are a successfull artist you have the same issues as everyone else. He wants to give hope to people who are struggling. He doesnt ask for sympathy or beg for votes as most other participants do in their interviews. Maybe you dont understand english, cause by saying he should be ashamed for presenting who he is, must be one of the dumbest things I have ever heard.

No one asked for this - since when have we ever seen an Eurovision artist - tell it all - story? NEVER! So keep in mind - this is a one of kind person! Embrace him!

    • It's not about the song, Andreas is a genius, it's about the fans. He immediately received 6K dislikes from Keino fans after the video was released, just because he won. They still cannot accept it, and many leave angry comments for no reason . A song that gives goosebumps cannot be bad. It's just that a wave of haters and negativity fell on him just because he won. And the songs that you wrote about, I also adore them, like "Fallen Angel" .

    • Russe songs are ugly. Only Norwegians understand the concept. Russ is a old Norwegian rite of passage and the songs belong to the ritual. I was Russ, long long time ago. A popular song when I was Russ, used the melody ... Satisfaction (Rolling Stones) with Norwegian text and twist. When I hear Satisfaction today, I hear the Norwegian text in my head and I smile and blush. Luckily for us/me, Russ before ... internet.

    • The song is very personal. It is about his life, his struggles. I think people who like his song will know what the song is about. ESC is not only about the melody, it is also about the lyrics and the meaning behind the song. So you are so wrong. So when people get to know what the song is about - the staging would also make sense. The demons (on stage) is pulling him into the darkness, but he is fighting trying to get to a better place. Many people have demons they are fighting, in Andreas case the demons are his depression and low self-esteem. If you don't like the song it's ok, just move on. And let people who care get the meaning of the song. What is the problem with that?

    • This isnt his life story, its an explaination how he became TIX, and how his character and himself are totally different. It is relevant. He writes the songs he do and his Eurovision song to reach out to people who feels different and have struggles. Even though you arent interested to get to know an artist like him to understand why he is like he is, most other people are. Lots of people commenting on his song calling him a joke and makes fun of him for what he wears, when they dont know him.....so a video like this to present himself for people outside of Scandinavia is obviously needed. There are lots of shallow people out there, who throw insults for fun. People should stop calling him or his life a sob story. Its extremely disrespectful, not only to him but to millions of people struggling with mental health. In fact 50% of the worlds population will experience mental problems through their lifetime, so its a good chance you will too. He wants to show that its okay to speak openly about it. Show people they are not alone. Give people hope. That can in fact save lifes. To make something good he does into something negative, is weird. Duncan Lawrance also had a story he told about (his friend who died), Netta also had a story, so did Salvador Sobral and Conchita Wurst.aso.. Every contestant speaks about something regarding themselves or their song in their interviews. TIX song is personal/autobiographical. He has written it himself and produced it. He hasnt got some songwriter to write it for him. Since his song is personal, of course he talks about that. No one has stopped other artists to talk about their song or story, if they have something interesting, important or relevant to tell. Why target TIX for actually being open and humble? He isnt even among the favorites, so dont worry, he wont steal your country’s «crone» if thats what you are afraid of.... geez. Btw its so condesending to say people voted for him cause they feel sorry for him. Tix doesnt portray himself as a victim, so thats rude. People voted for him cause they loved the song. He talks about it cause he has gotten this platform to reach out to a lot more people because of Eurovisionit with his song and the important message. It is important that people like him who is so popular shows that he has the same problems like everyone else. He has never begged or asked for votes like a lot of other participants do in their interviews.

    • Sorry, but you are so wrong. I voted for Tix, and i dont feel sorry for him at all. Im so prod and admire him for using his experiences in his songs lately, songs with meaning and soul, for reaching out to people. Most people have their struggles in a lifetime, and since Tix has opportunity to share openes and hope out to many people, it is so great. Please, use your bitternes somewhere else.

A lot of people did not get the deeper meaning of the song, they belived it was a joke song. That's why people needed to know the meaning behind the song. Many people have demons they are fighting, in Andreas case the demos are his depression and low self-esteem (who's trying to keep him in the darkness). Andreas is fighting, trying to get out of the darkness (depression), that's why the demons and angel on stage.

But now, I see I was mistaken, and that the song, and TIX, are deeper than I thought at first. (One thing that didn't change is that I loved Fallen Angel from the beginning, as well as Monument) It's all more clear now useful video, good luck in the contest!

This little Life Story Documentary is not going to make you win Eurovision, I am pretty sure almost everyone competing in Eurovision has a story to tell about their own life’s story. I will not vote for Norway, and it actually pisses me off seeing a country using this tactic to win a competition. This is not about me being heartless, this is just low. 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽 you will get no sympathy vote from me Norway. Shame on you!

    • @ESCxIVY SK Thanks a lot. Appreciate that 😊 I’m starting to get tired of answering ignorant people and I hoped this video would do so that I didnt have to do it anymore, but now people go new ways and start accusing him and Norway for trying to get symphaty votes and using it as a tactic to win. Gosh! I should just ignore him, but its not easy, hehe. This remind me of when Alexander Rybak in 2009 was a big favorite to win and he received so much abuse because people was seing him as a threat to win (over their own country). The difference this time is that Norway isnt one of the favorites at all. Many doesnt even think we will advance to the final, so why does he receive so much abuse when he actually wants to do something good for people? Some Eurovision-fans (from certain countries) are so obsessed and desperate to win, so they will say and do anything to «hurt» other countries chances and they have no guilt abusing participants and spreading lies.. Its the same every year. Thats the ugly side of Euro-fans,

Conchita Wurst had a story, Netta had a story, Salvador Sobral had a story, and the story isn’t the reason that they won, but the story is the reason why the songs feels so real and genuine, because they mean something to the artist. Tix didn’t enter eurovision to win and this is not the first time he is bringing up these issues. I think it’s great that people are using s big platform like eurovision to talk about mental health issues, it’s really important.

Behind him is this sad story about Tourette syndrome and while everyone supported Salvador Sobral from Portugal in Eurovision song contest 2017, then now when you would need to do the same, you're judging Tix due that Keiino didn't win. What a shame to everyone Tix hater! Plus he is one of the authors for big worldwide hit Sweet But Psycho by Ava Max. Tix, Fallen Angel is a masterpiece, you are deserved, if not to win, then definitely to be in top 10.

  • To call it a sob story as many do, show the ugliness in some people.Tix doesnt need Eurovvision or MGP or to win any of those. He wouldnt care if he ended last. He allready has a successful career. It is a great honor for him to represent his country though. The world needs people like him. Its important to talk openly about mental health, loneliness etc, cause what it seems like some of you probably dont know. 50% of the worlds population will experience mental issues through their lifetime. Its very important to talk openly about these things to reduces stigma and contribute to knowledge which can save lives. At the same time, openness is contagious and gives courage to others to be open about their problems to loved ones. Whats most important to him is to get his message through in his songs. Not to win, so he isnt doing this to make people vote for him/begging for votes (why does some people always think there is an agenda behind everyone who does something good in life). He is a role model and the reason why he tells his story in english when he has the chance to connect with people outside of Norway too is to reach out to more people out there. To show them that its okay to talk about your problems and that it will help. What he does isnt for his own gain, if you dont see that you are extremely narrow minded.

    • @Edi Carlos He wrote songs about his struggles in life long before MGP 2021 and ESC. You are so wrong, he's just a guy singing about his life, what is the problem with that? He don't need to win MGP or ESC, he just want people to hear his music. He wrote sweet but psycho for Ava Max, so if you think his career depends on winning ESC, you are so wrong. I bet he don't care if he wins or loses, as long as he can sing his songs for people.

    • @Edi Carlos I do not care which place Tix ends on- and I do not think he cares either. We Norwegians love the song and Tix. I felt that he sang from his heart to my heart. I think most of us felt that- and that's why we voted for Fallen Angel. I admire Andreas/Tix for what he is trying to do- helping other people who struggle in life. I hope people will give their votes to the song they love the most- if it is Fallen Angel I will be happy. If it is another song I'm happy too. Just do what your heart tells you ❤

  • Okay I think so this need to be solved right now To those who keep commenting negative things here for him... I just want to ask you all what is your problem with him.... Bcz keiino didn't win and tix won for u all it became a crime.... People voted for him... Even if he is a famous artist he got his fans bcz of his hardwork and dedication and his fans and public of Norway supported him when it was needed....... It is a dream come true to represent ones country in a big competition like ESC.... Don't spoil it for him or for any of the artists.... Respect music and Respect human...... Also those saying that this video is for pity votes you need to get a life and I would definitely want to apply for a national selection next year then I would see where you stand...... Nobody gave you right to judge a person.... You may not like the song but you cannot ignore the hardwork behind it Thank you From a tix and keiino fan

    • The problem here is.... this is a competition... using this kind of emotions to win votes is just a low tactic, this is not fair on the other contestants, everyone got a story to tell, it actually could back fire on him, he is making millions on his songs and still didn’t find happiness, and there he is trying to get votes using his Melo dramatic life story to convey it into votes, it is not fair, and quite frankly it pisses me off. Shame on you Norway... everyone got a story to tell. 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽 low blow tactic.

    • @ESCxIVY SK says you, the well known tix fanboy. This isn’t the first time they have talked about him, and even if it was, there are many they haven’t actually talked about yet, killing your point. All or none. You should feel happy though, tix has almost zero chance of qualifying and zero chance of winning, so he’s getting some spotlight while he can 😂😂

    Till MendrokTill Mendrok16 dögum síðan
    • Why? Because he has been asked numerous of times to participate in MGP, and he had never had time....but this year he took time, cause he felt it was important now since people have been through so much the last year being isolated and feeling lonely etc, so he wanted to do it for all those Norwegian people who have wanted him to participate in MGP. He didnt expect to win MGP or participate in Eurovision. He even betted a lot of money on Keiino to win MGP, cause he thought they would win and he was ready to support them in Eurovision. Thats why he was so emotional when he won. It surprised him and he was touched. He sees it as a great honor to represent his country though and of coursé he wants to do his best. Tix doesnt need Eurovvision or MGP or to win any of those. He wouldnt care if he ended last. He allready has a successful career.. For him its more important to get his message through. The world needs people like him. Its important to talk openly about mental health, loneliness etc, cause what it seems like some of you probably dont realize is that 50% of the worlds population will experience mental issues through their lifetime. Its very important to talk openly about mental health to reduces stigma and contribute to knowledge which can save lives. At the same time, openness is contagious and gives courage to others to be open about their problems to loved ones. Whats most important to him is to get his message through in his songs. Not to win, so he isnt doing this to make people vote for him/begging for votes (why does some people always think there is an agenda behind everyone who does something good in life). He is a role model and the reason why he tells his story in english when he has the chance to connect with people outside of Norway too is to reach out to more people out there. To show them that its okay to talk about your problems and that it will help. What he does isnt for his own gain, if people cant see that they are extremely narrow minded.

  • I think people would like the song better if the wings stayed at home. And although I think his story is touching and I appreciate that he’s using his fame to convey this message, I think the song is weak, and didn’t deserve to win over sooo many really strong songs in MGP this year. It’s a song contest. A SONG CONTEST.

    • When I watched the video where he won, I cried with him, I was upset that Keino was not greeted, or maybe it seemed to me ... maybe because of a virus, but I thought there was really no one around at that moment to come hugged him, gave him a hand, greeted him, supported him. He was all alone and the victory was his, an honest victory! Well, how could not hug him at that moment ?

And no it doesn't mean if u don't like TIX it means that your a KEiiNO fan. And second don't shush me I think it's much better if we talk it out then leaving it.
