Internationally reknowned production team Stargate, who count Beyoncé and Shakira amongst their clientele, have created a new mix of the Norwegian Eurovision Song Contest entry for 2007, Ven a bailar conmigo.

Stargate, the production outfit behind Beyoncé and Shakira's current collaboration (at #3 in the US charts) and Beyoncé's track Irreplaceable, is responsible for the new mix of Ven a bailar conmigo which will feature on the forthcoming promotional single, along with a Deep Frost Mix of the track by the same producers. Also on the CD will be an East Remix track by Swedish artist Andreas Rickstrand, along with a karaoke version of the song.

Dancing with Guri
Team Guri, meanwhile, are in full swing of preparations for the Eurovision Song Contest semfinal on May 10th. National broadcaster NRK has announced that Guri Schanke will be joined by top dancer / singers Bjørn Holthe and Asmund Grinaker. Both men are seasoned Latin groovers, the first having won TV2's Skal vi danse (Shall we dance?) last year, and the latter being a professional dance teacher and Norway's current champion in standard and Latin dance. According to NRK, the delegation are planning a true Latino-fest on stage, which they hope will propel Norway to the grand final on May 12th.
