Anders Antonsen (born 27 April 1997) is a Danish badminton player.
He won the gold medal at the 2015 European Junior Championships in the boys singles event, and at the same year was awarded the European Young Player of the Year.
Two days after the contest, Anders was offered a record contract by the same jury members of the radio contest.
He signed his first record contract with CBS while still in school and took up the stage name of Thomas Anders, performing in the then-popular German schlager genre.
Their controversial break-ups led to several lawsuits and heavy coverage from the German tabloid press.
During their two stints together, the duo sold 120 million records worldwide and received numerous sales certifications around the globe.
His father worked as a civil servant at the local revenue service agency, while his mother ran a convenience store.
The BWF World Tour are divided into six levels, namely World Tour Finals, Super 1000, Super 750, Super 500, Super 300 (part of the HSBC World Tour), and the BWF Tour Super 100.
Starting his singing career while still in school, Anders unsuccessfully attempted to establish himself as a schlager artist for several years.
Only his Spanish language album Barcos de Cristal (1994) proved successful in Argentina, where its eponymous title track climbed to number 1.
Following the second break-up, he started a more successful solo career, with his album This Time (2004) reaching number 14 in Germany and producing number 1 hits in Russia and Turkey.
