iMERIKA has just won the fifth semi-final of MGP 2021 and will take part in the Norwegian final on February 20th. She is competing at the national selection with the song ‘I can’t scape’.
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: TuVeia – “Bli med meg på gar’n” Vs RIVER – “Coming Home” (WINNER)
- Duel 2: Ane.Fin – “Walking In My Sleep” Vs iMERIKA – “I Can’t Escape” (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 at a special TV show that will be broadcast live on Monday, February 15th.
The last Norwegian semi-final also brought us the first live performance of the pre-qualified performer Rein Alexander.
