The second edition of MGP Direkte is underway in Norway. Tonight the Norwegian broadcaster NRK will reveal for the first time which seven songs and artists will take part in the second heat on Saturday night in Florø.
This week sees the return of Norwegian Eurovision Song Contest winner Alexander Rybak as a songwriter, with song number two by Annsofi.
The participants of the second heat of Melodi Grand Prix are:
- Martin Blomvik – Det vakje mi tid
- Annsofi – I’m with you
- Shackles – On hold
- Hank – No one
- Fjellfolk – Ulvetuva
- Haji – Shine with me
- Margaret Berger – I feed you my love
Three songs will qualify for the Norwegian final from each heat, and one wildcard will still make it from those that did not make it from the heats, making the total number of songs in the Oslo final to ten.
The songs will eventually also be made available on the NRK.no/mgp website
