The established Norwegian national selection process Melodi Grand Prix (MGP) is going to take place once more in 2018. Following the date and place confirmation from the national broadcaster of the country NRK last October, tickets for the live show are now available for purchasing.
Go and grab yours!
The famous Oslo Spektrum, which has also been the 1996 Eurovision venue, will once again be home to MGP. The show will be taking place on Saturday 10 March at 19:30 local time, whilst you may buy your tickets via Ticketmaster. There are two price categories, one for 430 NOK per ticket and the cheaper for 225 NOK.
NRK is expected to announce which 10 of the 1,200 submitted acts will eventually battle for the golden Eurovision ticket in March over the first months of 2018. Regarding this announcement, let’s see whether one or more former Norwegian entrants will be bidding once again for representing their nation in the contest, as the rumour mill for Alexander Rybak, Stella Mwangi, Alexander Walmann and others has been in overdrive.

Alexander Walmann were going to defend the Norwegian colours in Ukraine’s capital, with the entry Grab the moment.
