Benjamin Tsimalona Rosenbom and Tanne Amanda Balcells are the multicultural Danish pop duo, Ben & Tan. Ben was born in 2002 in Berlin to his German mother and Malagasy father. Tan was born in Barcelona to her Danish mother and Spanish father.

Ben & Tan both live in Denmark and met each other during X Factor Denmark in 2019 as co-competitors. During the season, they often found themselves jamming to Ed Sheeran songs backstage; it was meant to be that they later would join forces as a charismatic duo.

Ben & Tan will participate with the upbeat and happy song YES: what could be more positive than saying yes? YES has some notable songwriters behind it, including prolific Swedish composer and former Melodifestivalen act, Jimmy Jansson. Also included is Linnea Deb, who co-wrote Sweden's Eurovision 2015 winning song Heroes and Emil Lei co-wrote and produced last year's Danish entry Love is Forever.

YES is a hopeful song encouraging everyone to say yes to life and love even in hard times. "Our dream is to have everyone at Eurovision shouting 'YES' back at us, and we are very much looking forward to spreading the message all over Europe," says Ben & Tan.

Lyrics of YES

I was 6 feet under for the one and only Spend the nights feeling bitter sad and lonely Didn't realize how much fear controlled me Until you came and loved me like I'm holy Now I'm ready to give life one more chance Hey I think my heart is beating me to death I have got an arrow through my chest I am so in love I must confess Say Yes Say Yes Say Yes I think my heart is beating me to death I have got an arrow through my chest I am so in love I must confess Say Yes Say Yes Uhhh Never thought I would be high on life but sober Didn't think I would be able to turn this over Let's make stories to talk about when we are older Come and rest your pretty head upon my shoulder Now I'm ready to give life one more chance Hey I think my heart is beating me to death I have got an arrow through my chest I am so in love I must confess Say Yes Say Yes Say Yes I think my heart is beating me to death I have got an arrow through my chest I am so in love I must confess Say Yes Say Yes Hey Uhhhhhhh Say Yes Say Yes Say Yes Uhhhhhhh Let's make stories to talk about when we are older Mmmm, come and rest your pretty head upon my shoulder Uhhhhhhh Ohhhhhh Say Yes Say Yes Say yes I think my heart is beating me to death I have got an arrow through my chest I am so in love I must confess Say Yes Say Yes Say Yes Say yes I think my heart is beating me to death I have got an arrow through my chest I am so in love I must confess Say Yes Say Yes I think my heart is beating me to death I have got an arrow through my chest I am so in love so just say yes
