"In a Moment Like This" is a song performed by Chanée & N'evergreen and composed Thomas G:son, Henrik Sethsson and Erik Bernholm, and was the Danish entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2010, held in Oslo, Norway on May 29, 2010.[1]

The song was the winner of the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix contest, held on 6 February, which selected the Danish entry for Eurovision, and they won fourth place at the contest, with 149 points, this song was also later that year covered by South African Artists Lianie May & Jay.[2][3]

The song didn't escape controversy as it was alleged that it was too similar to The Police "Every Breath You Take".[4]

Swedish band Scotts recorded a cover version of the song as a duet with Erica Sjöström from the Drifters, which in 2010 appeared on both on the Scotts album Vi gör det igen[5] and the Drifters' album Stanna hos mig[6].
