With just over 24 hours to go until Norway is due to select its Eurovision 2023 representative for Liverpool, the final acts are on the last push to promote their entry. Last week, the 2020 winner of Melodi Grand Prix, and Norway’s Eurovision 2020 representative Ulrikke released the Norwegian version of her entry “Honestly” titled “Til Evig Tid”
A more orchestral version of the song
To coincide with the release of the Norwegian version of the song, Ulrikke released a music video for “Til Evig Tid”, which is more scaled back and has a lot more instrumentation and a backing choir. To shoot the music video, Ulrikke travelled to Tromsø, Trondheim, Lillehammer, Oslo and Sarpsborg before the final version of the video was released.
