Norway is not wasting any time to make sure they are ready to plan another successful Melodi Grand Prix. Just hours after Keiino emerged victorious at Oslo’s Spektrum Arena, the broadcaster has posted information on what it would take to follow in their footsteps in 2020.
Norwegian broadcaster NRK has launched submission period for MGP 2020. Everyone can register for songs, but artists must have turned 16 to join the Eurovision Song Contest.
There will be a shorter registration window and an earlier deadline. The registration opens on March 2 and will close already on May 17. All registered entries must have a minimum of one Norwegian songwriter on the team. Each producer/songwriter can submit a maximum of three songs.
“The invitation is open to anyone who writes songs. This is a unique chance to try to capture a place in the world’s largest music competition. We are open to all kinds of music within a broad understanding of the pop genre. It can be anything from hard rock to bubble gum, and everything in between”, says Stig Karlsen, producer and organizer.
Complete rules and submission form are available here.
