Norway: Second chance round of MGP 2022 tonight!

The process of selecting the norwegian representative for the 66th Eurovision Song Contest continues tonight. Melodi Grand Prix 2022 will keep us company today, with one ticket left for the grand final on February 19th. This ticket is claimed by the twelve eliminated acts of the four semifinals.


Melodi Grand Prix 2022 consists of six shows: four semifinals, a second chance round and the grand final, from which the representative of the Scandinavian country in the 66th Eurovision Song Contest will emerge. Four artists participate in each semifinal, with the first of them in the ranking advancing to the final.

Those eliminated from the semifinals (three from each) take part in the second chance round. Through the public voting that took place on Monday and was based on the performances of the semifinals, the four most dominant from those excluded will be competing for the fifth ticket that leads to the grand final of MGP 2022.

After five shows we will reach the night of the grand final, in which a total of ten artists will participate: the four winners of the semifinals, the winner of the second chance round and the five direct finalists.
