Malin (born Malin Reitan on 8 August 1995 in Trondheim, Norway) is a Norwegian singer. She finished 3rd in Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2005 with her song Sommer og skolefri. She is also a recording artist with several released albums. Malin sings in her regional dialect.
Malin's career as a singer started when she was nine years old. She auditioned for the Norwegian selection for JESC 2005, the Melodi Grand Prix Junior 2005, and she was selected to sing among ten contestants in the final show. Her song was too short though, so she had to write one more verse for it on the way home from the audition. After surprising herself by winning MGP jr by a landslide, she went on a summer concert tour, singing on festivals and television shows. In November she performed in the JESC 2005 in Hasselt, Belgium and finished 3rd, the best position for Norway so far.
The next year Malin signed a record deal and in 2006 she released two albums. Malin på månen was released in May. It's a children's album that includes Sommer og skolefri and she participated in writing most of the original songs on it. Malin's jul is a Christmas album with familiar Christmas songs. Third album Pang was released in April 2008, and it was certified gold in few weeks.
In October 2011 it was announced that Malin will compete in the adult version of Melodi Grand Prix in 2012. In her semifinal she finished third and made it to the national final with the song "Crush".
