4 bugg & en coca cola - Lotta Engberg

Lotta Engberg was born on March 5, 1963 and represented her country Sweden in 1987 with the song 'Boogaloo'. The song was originally called '4 bugg & en coca cola', but international advertising rules meant that the name of the song had to be changed. The song was a hit in Sweden and peaked at number 19, and it ended up in twelfth place in Eurovision, in a field of 22 competitors.

She appeared in national finals for Eurovision in 1984, 1988, 1990, 1996, 2002 and 2012, but failed to return to the international Eurovision stage. Together with her husband Anders she formed Lotta & Anders Engbergs orkester in 1989. Lotta left the band five years later to form her own Lotta Engbergs orkester. This band fell apart in 2002. Lotta has also been a successful TV host, presenting Lotta på Liseberg and Bingolotto on Swedish television.
