Belgian singer, half of the duo 'Nicole & Hugo,' with Hugo Sigal.
On 1 December 1971, Nicole & Hugo got married at Wemmel.
Two years later they participated 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. At the Eurovision Song Contest (held in Luxembourg on 7 April 1973) they finished in last place. Their performance was memorable, however, because of their purple flared jump suits and also their dance routine.
In 1984, they accepted an offer to entertain on cruise ships, sailing around the world in the process.
On 20 October 1990 they were awarded with a medal by the Belgian Authors Society SABAM for their contributions to the Flemish entertainment industry.
In 2004, they tried again, after 29 years, at the Eurovision Song Contest. They entered the Flemish preselections, with "Love is all Around". They placed second in the first round, but scored low with the jury, so failed to make it to the final round.
In 2005, they appeared on Congratulations, the 50th anniversary show of the Eurovision Song Contest. They appeared in all of the compilation videos and finally appeared on stage in the 1973 costumes. They then sang a shortened version of "Baby, Baby".
Nicole & Hugo are still recording and bringing out new CDs on a regular basis, also making guest appearances in television series such as F.C. De Kampioenen.
In 2008, the couple released the album "Eeuwig Geluk" including the hit singles "Pastorale", "Olé Ola" and others. Most of the lyrics were written by singer/songwriter Hans Lambrechts.
