Biography

Nicole & Hugo is a Belgian duo. They met in 1970. They became romantically involved and formed a singing duet. In 1971, they entered into the national final for the Eurovision Song Contest. They won the Belgian final. Prior to their departure to Dublin for the international competition, Nicole fell ill with jaundice and the duo were unable to attend. They were replaced in their absence by Jacques Raymond and Lily Castel. Two years later they succeeded in participating in the Eurovision Song Contest finals when “Baby, Baby” won the Belgian national preselection. The song became a hit in the Flanders region of Belgium, but it was not a success in the rest of Europe.Their performance was memorable,  because of their purple flared jump suits and also their dance routine. The couple have been performing throughout the years, a.o, on a cruiseship. They released their last album “Eeuwig Geluk” in 2008
