Norwegian broadcaster NRK has revealed that Arian Engebø and Stian Thorbjørnsen will be the presenters of Melodi Grand Prix 2023.
Arian has many presentations to her name, having recently hosted this year’s VG-Lista Rådhusplassen. Engebø has also become a well-known NRK voice in recent years. Together with Nate Kuhunga, they have the radio program “StudioP3”. Stian “Staysman” Thorbjørnsen, has participated in the Norwegian selection, once in 2015 with “En godt stekt pizza”, and most recently in 2021 as part of Landeveiens helter.
So from “StudioP3” Stian, with a specially written song for the occasion, mentioned that he will be joined by the hostess of next year’s Melodi Grand Prix.
Staysman says he feels lucky to now be leading the competition alongside someone who is as excited about the concept as he is.
This means that Kåre Magnus Bergh will be out of the presenting role. He is the longest-serving MGP presenter – twice as many as Odd Grythe , who had six, from 1960 to 1965.
MGP will start on January 14th .
Melodi Grand Prix is expected to follow a similar format to previous years, with the contest consisting of several semi-finals and a final. All of the results are expected to be decided by public voting alone. Exact details on the format will be released in due course.
Subwoolfer represented Norway at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 with “Give That Wolf a Banana”. They finished 10th in the Grand Final scoring 182 points.
