Vidar Villa inaugurated the show with his piece “MER,” while the beloved trio KEiiNo concluded the performance with “Damdiggida.”

What is the mechanics of Melodi Grand Prix 2024?

For the 2024 edition, the Norwegian pre-selection comes with new changes, as customary in the format. We’ll have three semifinals, each featuring 6 different proposals, unlike the 7 from the previous edition. Also, akin to last year, the “Autotune” tool is allowed again despite criticisms. This year introduces the possibility of participating songs that have been previously released, departing from the exclusivity of premiering in the pre-selection, which was maintained in previous years.

Voting mechanisms also undergo changes. While the semifinal system remains, where the audience exclusively decides the 3 proposals advancing to the final via televoting, the international jury, comprised of industry professionals, remains for the grand final. However, its voting weight reduces from 50% to 40%, with 60% now resting on the public.

The Melodi Grand Prix concluded its semifinal rounds on Saturday, January 27th, and will culminate in the final at Trondheim Spektrum in front of 8,500 attendees on Saturday, February 3rd.
