Melodi Grand Prix 2023 will consist of 3 semi-finals of 7 artists. In each semi-final, the three artists with the most votes will advance to the final taking place on the 4th of February. Additionally, there will be a second chance show where one lucky artist who did not qualify from their original show will advance to the final. The final, this year, reintroduces the juries, and will be combined 50% with the public for the final result. Arian Engebø and Stian “Staysman” Thorbjørnsen will be the hosts for all four shows.

Norway’s Eurovision Journey

The Scandinavian nation made its debut in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1960, with Nora Brockstedt and the song “Voi Voi”, which placed 4th. Since their debut, they have participated 60 times, and made the grand final 57 of these. In addition, Norway has won the competition three times (1985, 1995, and 2009).

Norway’s latest Eurovision participation saw them being represented by Subwoolfer with the song “Give That Wolf a Banana”. During their participation, Norway placed 10th in the grand final, receiving 182 points from the jury and televoters.
