During their whole career they were active for animal rights and as their artistcareer became more inactive after the collectionalbum was released in 1993, the more active became their engagement for animal rights. They tried to make a comeback in 1996, but it was not sucessfull, and in year 2000 after they released a modern remix of Oh Mama, they decided to split the duo for making soloprojects instead.
9 years later they made a sucessful comeback in Melodifestivalen with the song Show Me Heaven and has progressed from heat 2 to the second chance ('andra chansen') round, which takes place on 7 March 2009.
In March 16 2009 Lili & Susie will release a collectionalbum with all their old hits and also "Show Me Heaven".
Many people have wonded about the spelling of the name of the duo. It was in 1990 they changed from Lili & Sussie to Lili & Susie. But actually it was the record company who did that change and according to Susie herself she has always spelled her name with only one "s". So Lili & Susie is the correct spelling!
