Earlier today morning, the Norwegian public national broadcaster, NRK, revealed the battles for the 1st Semi-Final of the 2022 Melodi Grand Prix. Four acts will compete against each other for the ticket to the final, while the big favourite, Elsie Bay, has already been allocated to the Final.
The battles draw was held by the programme manager Kåre Magnus Bergh. There going to be one pop battle and one rock battle.
The first duel is between established artist and songwriter Mira Craig and 22-year-old MGP debutant Eline Noelia.
The second duel is going to be a rock competition between the cross-genre group TrollfesT and singer Frode Vassel.
After the aforementioned duels are completed, the winners advance to the gold battle and the gold winner takes the ticket to the final. This means that only one entry goes to the final and another one will advance to the second chance round, where an additional finalist will emerge.
The first semi-final is going to take place this Saturday 15/01/2022.
