Last Saturday, the annual spring meeting of OGAE Norway was held in Oslo. The preview videos of all entries in the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest were shown on a big screen and the members were asked to give out a total of 20 points in their own way to their favourite songs. Among the guest stars were Guri Schanke, who will represent Norway in 2007 with Ven a bailar conmigo and CRASH!, who finished third in Melodi Grand Prix 2007 with Wannabe. Their songwriter Teeny, who is a member of the band Wig Wam (Norway 2005), was also present.
