The Story Behind TIX - Norway 🇳🇴- Eurovision 2021
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.
