Tim Schou (born July 20, 1987) is a Danish pop singer and songwriter known for being the lead singer of the Danish band A Friend in London.


Tim Schou won the contest Danish Young Talent 2005 which led to the recording of A Friend of London's first single, "Thoughts of a Boheme". He won with his band A Friend in London the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2011 and came in 5th in the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Tim took part in the reality television show Skjulte stjerner (Hidden star) aired from 2 September to 14 October 2011 on Danish television. He introduced a young new Danish artist called Thomas Meilstrup mentoring him throughout the show and singing duets with him. Thomas and Tim won the series.

His band, 'A friend in London', released their debut album Unite on 21 January 2013. Prior to the release of the album, they supported New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys during their European tour. As a result, Howie D. of the Backstreet Boys is featured on a remake of "New Tomorrow". The track featuring Howie D. is found as a bonus track on the iTunes Deluxe Version. The album also featured the Canadian singer Carly Rae Jepsen on one of the main album tracks, namely "Rest from the Streets".

In 2014, after the release of their first album, A Friend in London disbanded. In late 2014, Schou released his first solo single called "Supernova". His second single was released in January 2015 and was called "Goodbye".


Tim Schou competed in the sixth edition of Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, the Danish selection. The song he competed with was his debut solo single, "Supernova". The song ended up winning the selection with 283 points and therefore represented Denmark in the tenth edition of the North Vision Song Contest.

Schou performed sixth in the first semi-final from where he qualified in the first place with 116 points. During the grand final, Schou performed twenty-third and got the fourteenth place with 100 points, receiving 12 points from Ireland and Norway.
