The second Norwegian semi-final has just finished. Two more acts have just found out that they will be passing straight to the final and two acts will have to sing again in the Siste Sjansen in order to have a chance to compete for the ticket to Düsseldorf.

The second show from the Norwegian selection better known as the Melodi Grand Prix saw three songs ending their run. Four acts advanced to the upcoming rounds. In the interval act Alexander Steurund and Guri Schanke performed a medley of songs. The latter represented Norway in the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest.

To the final, which will be held in Oslo, on the 12th of February:

  • Babel Fish – Depend on me
  • Hanne Sørvaag – You're like a melody

To Siste Sjansen round, which will be held on the 5th of February in Sarpsborg:

  • Endre – Oh oh (Puppy love)
  • Mimi Blix – Allergic poll

Our readers partly agreed with the actual oytcome of the show. While Hanne was correctly predicted to go through, voters preferred Mimi Blix to join her in the final. Babel Fish, another qualifyer tonight, only managed to come 4th in our poll. Endre was the least supported candidate by the users.
