Lou is the stage name of Louise Hoffner (born October 27, 1963 in Waghäusel), a German pop singer. She was the sixth child of her parents brothers and sisters. She toured with her band for 15 years, in Germany as well as abroad.

Lou participated in the 2001 Eurovision national finals, coming in third place. Shortly before Christmas 2002, composer Ralph Siegel asked her if she would be interested in competing in the national finals again with "Let's Get Happy", a song he had written with lyricist Bernd Meinunger.

Lou won the German 2003 finals on March 7, which qualified her to represent Germany at the Eurovision Song Contest 2003 in Riga where she came in 11th place. In March 2006, she made a guest appearance at that year's German Eurovision preselection, singing "Let's Get Happy" in a medley of past German Eurovision entries.

Let's Get Happy

Let's Get Happy" was the German entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2003, performed in English by Lou.
The song was performed tenth on the night, following Cyprus' Stelios Konstantas with "Feeling Alive" and preceding Russia's t.A.T.u. with "Ne Ver', Ne Boysia." At the close of voting, it had received 53 points, placing 11th in a field of 26.
Composed and written by Ralph Siegel and Bernd Meinunger, the song is an up-tempo number, with Lou exhorting her listeners to forget their troubles and "get happy and let's be friends". Lou and her five backing singers appeared in a colourful assortment of clothing.

 Lou wore a white jacket and trousers over a black top, along with a belt with a red fastener. Her two male cohorts appeared in suits, one in red and one in black. Her three female backing singers included a woman dressed in a black jacket and thigh-length boots, another dressed in a sleeveless green gown, and finally, a woman dressed in a sleeveless silver catsuit and platform shoes.
This was prolific composer Ralph Siegel's fourteenth entry for Germany.

It was succeeded as German representative at the 2004 Contest by Max with "Can't Wait Until Tonight".
