Blåsemafian feat. Hazel have just won the first semi-final of MGP 2021 and will take part at the Norwegian final on February 20th. They are competing at the national selection with the song ‘Let Loose’.
At today’s show, the 4 candidates were paired for one to one battles. After the performances, the public could vote for their favourite of each duel via App and online (registration needed):
- Duel 1: Stina Talling – “Elevate” (WINNER) Vs Beady Belle – “Playing With Fire”
- Duel 2: Jorn – “Fate Bloody Faith” Vs Blåsemafian feat. Hazel – “Let Loose” (WINNER)
Then, the two winners advanced to a final duel when the public again decided the best duelist and winner of the ticket for the final on 20th February.
Today’s non-qualifiers still have a chance of going through the semifinals as the public will also choose an additional qualifier from all the non-qualified semi-finalists by voting online after the last semi-final. The wild card artist will be announced in a radio broadcast on Sunday, February 15th, the following day.
The first Norwegian semi-final also brought us the first live performances of two of the pre-qualified artists, Keiino and TIX.
The songs that will take part at the next week’s semi-final will be premiered on Monday February 18th. Stay tuned!
