NRK have announced, with a bit of fanfare, the eighteen songs that will take part in the MGP 2024. The first stage, those Semi Final heats, will take place in the NRK Studios in Oslo with three out of the six, via 100 percent televoting, going through to the final which takes place on 3rd February at the Trondheim Spektrum where NRK will impliment a 60/40 televoting-Jury split in a hope it’ll get implimented at Eurovision – like they did with Autotune!
Lets look at those Semi Finals shall we?
Semi-Final 1, January 13th:
Obviously the biggest name in this semi final is the first one. Margaret Berger, she of Eurovision’s past with I feed you my Love is having another go at it!
Margaret Berger – Oblivion
Myra – Heart on Fire
Ingrid Jasmin – Eya
GOTHMINISTER – We Come Alive
Fredrik Halland – Stranded
Mathilde SPZ ft. Chris Archer & Slam Dunk – Woman Show
Semi-Final 2, January 20th:
Is “My AI” possibly the worst song ever committed to music? – that’s not for me to say!
Gåte – Ulveham
Super Rob, Erika Norwich – My AI
Mileo – You’re Mine
Eli Kristin – Touch Of Venus
Dag Erik Oksvold & Anne Fagermo – Judge Tenderly Of Me
Farida – Heartache
Semi-Final 3, January 27th:
This is the one where most of the attention will be drawn with Keiino trying to get through to the Eurovision for the third time with, albeit, a different type of song which is not my cup of tea but it only has to beat what is in front of it.
KEiiNO – Damdiggida
MIIA – Green Lights
Annprincess – Save Me
Thomas Jenssen – Take Me To Heaven
MISTRA – Waltz Of Death
Vidar Vila – MER
