Norway: Ten artists known in two weeks

Norwegian broadcaster NRK has announced that they will publish the names of the artists for Melodi Grand Prix 2015 in two weeks. On Wednesday the 21st of january, the ten acts that will fight to represent Norway in Vienna will be made public.

After having a national selection with semi finals in the past years, NRK has decided to just go for a one-evening event on the 14th of March. Melodi Grand Prix 2015 will be hosted by Kåre Magnus Bergh and Silya. The national final will be held in Oslo Spectrum, the same venue as during the Eurovision Song Contest 1996.

As reported earlier, due to the 60th anniversary of the Eurovision Song Contest, broadcaster NRK has decided to give the artists something extra this year. They are going to be accompanied by an live orchestra on stage (pictured above).

Carl Espen represented Norway last year with the song “Silent Storm”, which finished 8th in the Grand Final in Copenhagen.
