"Voi Voi" (supposed Sami expression meaning "Hey Hey") was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1960, performed in Norwegian by Nora Brockstedt. This was Norway's debut at the Eurovision Song Contest, and consequently the first occasion on which the Norwegian language was used at the Contest. The title being in Sami was also the first use of the language in the Contest, the next entry being Sámiid Ædnan in 1980.

The song is in the chanson style popular in the early years of the Contest. Brockstedt begins by telling her listeners that she once heard the song of a Sami girl in the north of the country, before repeating the lyrics of the song in question. This song-within-a-song is a love ballad from the girl to her lover, telling him how much she looks forward to spending time with him on Saturday.

At the close of voting, it had received 11 points, placing 4th in a field of 13.

Following the death of Georg Elgaaen in 2005, the royalties of the song goes to the Norwegian Humanist Association, of which he was a member.

As well as the versions here, there is also a Danish version also called Voi Voi.
