"Miss Kiss Kiss Bang" is a song by Alex Christensen and Oscar Loya which was the German entry to the Eurovision Song Contest 2009, held in Moscow, Russia. In Moscow the duo performed the song under the group moniker Alex Swings Oscar Sings. It was featured on Oscar Loya's debut album Heart 4 Sale.[1] A Spanish recording does exist, entitled ''Muchacha Kiss Kiss Bang".


The song was presented on 21 February 2009 at the Echo award in Berlin.[2] It was revealed that American burlesque star Dita von Teese would join Alex and Oscar on stage (to keep in tune with the song's American theme).[3] The song was performed seventeenth on the night, following Denmark's Niels Brinck with "Believe Again" and preceding Turkey's Hadise with "Düm Tek Tek". At the close of voting it had received 35 points, placing 20th in a field of 25.

It was succeeded as German representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 by Lena Meyer-Landrut with "Satellite".

Award-winning show choir from Buffalo Grove High School (IL), "The Expressions" used this song in their 2009–2010 competition set.
