Norway: NRK starts the search for songs

The Norwegian national broadcaster, NRK, started the search for the song which will represent them in the Eurovision Song Contest 2012.

Everyone is welcome to send in a song, and NRK especially encourages Norwegian citizens to do so, but foreign composers are also welcome. The deadline to submit the songs is the 2nd of September, and after that a special jury will select the 21 songs which will proceed to the national final.

The artist who sings the song in the demo version, doesn’t necessarily mean that he/she will sing it in the national final as well. NRK reserves the right to select a performer for any of the submitted songs.

It is yet unknown if the format of the national final will be the same.
