Melodi Grand Prix 2020: Part Two! The Norwegian national selection goes on tonight, live from the H3 Arena in Oslo!
Tonight sees the second semi-final, where 4 acts from Eastern Norway will compete, but only one of them will perform their entry again in the Grand Final on 15 February. Here are the evening’s contestants:
- Anna Jæger – How about Mars
- Kim Wigaard & Maria Mohn – Fool for love
- Rein Alexander – One last time
- Tore Petterson – The start of something new
The 4 artists will compete in duels, which will be drawn by the presenters. The winners of each duel will fight against each other in the final Gold Duel. This is how the victor of the night will be determined.
This will join the five pre-qualified acts in the final, as well as last Saturday’s qualifier of the first semi-final, which was none other than Raylee with her pop entry Wild.
Besides the 4 competing acts, the pre-qualified song that will be introduced tonight is the one by Didrik & Emil Solli-Tangen, named Out of air.

Norway at Eurovision 2019
Norway was nothing less than a great surprise at last year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv. Although not one of the big favorites of the competition, the KEiiNO trio and their pop song Spirit in the sky, reached the top in the audience’s favor.
However, they didn’t snatch the trophy, as they did not finish the same high in the ranking of the national juries. A very successful entry from Norway, which finished 6th on the overall scoreboard, with 331 points in total.
