The MGP 2021 Grand Final is just around the corner, and we will know who will be Norway’s representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 very soon. The winner will succeed the young Ulrikke Brandstorp and her song “Attention”, who was Norway’s representative at Eurovision 2020 last year.
The last semi-final will take place this Saturday, 13 February with other 4 contestants fighting for a final ticket. A few minutes ago, NRK has confirmed the semi-final participants and has published the songs that each of them will perform at the Norwegian selection stage.
In the list below, you can find out the four candidates and listen to their songs:
Ane.Fin – “Walking In My Sleep”
TuVeia – “Bli med meg på gar’n”
iMERIKA – “I Can’t Escape”
RIVER – “Coming Home”
Last Saturday, we enjoyed the fourth semi-final of Melodi Grand Prix 2021, in which KiiM won with his song “My lonely voice”, beating Marianne Pentha and Mikkel Gaup. The fourth semi-final also featured a performance of “World on Fire” by Atle Pettersen, who has qualified directly for the Grand Final. The Norwegian broadcaster has chosen a scenario without a live audience for their national selection due to the strong health crisis that is sweeping the world because of the pandemic, which is currently on the rise. However, all shows feature live shootings of people watching them at home.
Here is the list of artists who have already qualified for the Grand Final of the Melodi Grand Prix 2021 on 20 February:
- Blåsemafian ft. Hazel – “Let Loose” (Winners of Semi-Final 1)
- Raylee – “Hero” (Winner of Semi-Final 2)
- Emmy – “Witch Woods” (Winner of Semi-Final 3)
- KiiM – “My lonely voice” (Winner of Semi-Final 4)
- KEiiNO – “Monument”
- Kaja Rode – “Feel Again”
- Atle Pettersen – “World On Fire”
- TIX – “Ut Av Mørket”
- Rein Alexander – “Eyes Wide Open”
- Stavangerkameratene – “Barndomsgater”
This edition of MGP is leaving us a mix of well-known and loved artists as well as new and exciting ones. This was already revealed by the organisers weeks before the start of the Norwegian selection, they said:
“We are very interested in diversity, so there will be a wide variety of genres. There will be some nice surprises, and people may have to pay attention to something new that they don’t normally listen to”.
Unlike other broadcasters, Norsk Rikskringkasting (NRK) has decided not to keep Ulrikke for this year’s contest. According to the artist, she is preparing a great performance that we will be able to see at the Grand Final in future editions. In addition, after having been asked by her fans, she has promised she will return to MGP maybe in two years time.
Remember! You can’t miss the last semi-final of Melodi Grand Prix 2021 on Saturday from 19:50 CET at H3 Arena.
