The Danish singer MØ’s year just keep getting better and better and now it’s guaranteed to go out with a bang.
After singing her way to the most-streamed song ever with ‘Lean On’ and becoming the highest-placed Danish artist on the influential Billboard Hot 100 list in over 60 years, MØ’s remarkable year will end with a performance at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo. 
 
On December 11th, the Funen native will pay tribute to this year’s recipients, a quartet of Tunisian civil society groups that were awarded the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize in October for helping rescue the only democracy that emerged from the Arab Spring.
 
 
They will receive their prize on December 10 at a formal ceremony at Oslo's City Hall, followed by the concert the next evening.
 
In a press release, MØ wrote that it was “a great honour” to be asked to perform. 
 
“I have the deepest respect for the Nobel Peace Prize – not only it, but all forms of recognition given to those who try to make the world a better place. To be able to perform at the Nobel Peace Prize concert and help spread the message about the National Dialogue Quartet’s very important work is a great honour,” the singer said. 
 
Former ‘The Tonight Show’ and American comedy legend Jay Leno will host the concert and other scheduled performers include Kygo and Jason Derulo.
