The Norwegian broadcaster NRK held its national final for the Eurovision Song Contest, the Melodi Grand Prix. Mørland & Debrah Scarlett were the winners of the competition in Norway, which grants them the right to represent the country in Vienna this coming May.

Norway had its national final and the decision was made. The MGP took place at the Oslo Spektrum, host by Silya Nimoen and Kare Magnus and with the presence and participation of the Kringskastingsorkesteret, which played live music for six of the entries.

The show started with a spectacular homage to Germany’s Eurovision 1979 entry Dschinghis Khan and went on to the viewing of the Norwegian eleven Eurovision candidates, plus the performances of Carl Espen (Norway 2014) and Bobbysocks (Norway 1985) with their past entries in the Eurovision Song Contest.

And once the voting was completed and counted, it was announced that Mørland & Debrah Scarlett will fly the Norwegian flag in Vienna in the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest with the song A monster like me, which they will perform again in the Wiener Stadthalle during the Eurovision 2nd semi-final on 21 May.

Norway counts 3 victories, quite a few top tens and the highest votes count in the history of the Eurovision Song Contest for a winning entry, which was set by Alexander Rybak with 387 points in 2009 with Fairytale. Last year the country was represented by Carl Espen with Silent Storm after his victory in the MGP.
