We have reached Norway in our series of interviews, and today we talk to Margaret Berger from Norway. Her song I feed you my love will go out as song number 13 in the second semi-final in Malmö on 16 May.

First of all, how does it feel to be representing Norway this year?

It feels wonderful! I never expected this, and it’s such an honor to be chosen by the people to represent your country. Also it has already given me a lot of opportunities I didn’t have before this happened, so I am so grateful! 

Can you tell us more about your song, in particular, the promotional video?

The song is kind of a hard meets soft electro-song with lyrics that are deep and poetic. 

What can we expect from your performance in Malmö?

I hope to deliver a good vocal performance as I think there are always so many good singers in Eurovision. So we’ve focused a lot on the song in the performance and let it be in the center. I have a really cool drummer by my side too, who always delivers a good show. 

I feed you my love is currently one of the favourites to win the contest this year according to the bookies.  How does this make you feel?

It’s exciting and a bit scary, I hope people will still vote for me…  

What would you do if your song won Eurovision this year?

I would work hard finishing the album, I have a lot more songs I would love for people to hear. So I would seize the amazing opportunity and work as hard as I possibly could. 

Which other participants’ songs have you heard this year, and which are your personal favourites?

I’ve heard Denmark, Sweden, UK, Netherlands so far. I have to hear more before I say who the favourite is. 

How does your Eurovision experience so far compare with your experience on Norwegian idol?

Some things are similar, but it’s a lot bigger this, and I’m also more aware and awake this time around. It has really helped me having that experience. 

Are you usually a fan of the Eurovision Song Contest? And what are your all-time favourite Eurovision entries?

Oh yes! I always watch Eurovision with my friends. My all time favourite is Ireland 94 – Rock’n Roll kids. 

If you could rule the world for a day, what would you do?

I would put all my focus on endangered species of our planet, it breaks my heart to see the human race destroy our own planet. So I would give a lot of money and attention to that. And also give all the children of the whole world a day off from school, work and take them to an amusement park and give them ice cream. 

Finally, do you have a message for readers of esctoday.com?

I really hope you will enjoy my performance, just know that I’m bursting of happiness to have my 3 minutes on that stage! Hope to visit your country soon! Love!
