Following the announcement of her participation in this year’s Norwegian national final, Melodi Grand Prix 2023, Elsie Bay spoke exclusively to EurovisionFun and Apostolos Bogiannos and Giorgos Zeuteridis.
Elsie is among one of the finalists of this year’s MGP and will try to represent her country at Eurovision 2023 with the song “Love you in a dream“.
This is her second time participating in the national final and she says that although she enjoyed her experience last year, she had no intention of returning to the competition this year but changed her mind when she wrote her MGP 2023 entry song.
When asked what “Love you in a dream” means to her, she answered:
“I am very proud of this song, which talks about the realization of our dreams which can only be achieved if we ourselves strive for it.”
About her stage performance, she told us:
“My song is a ballad, so don’t expect a ‘party’ on stage. But I won’t be alone on stage”.
When asked which of her two performances she prefers, she answered that her song “Love you in a dream” stands out this year.
In conclusion, she told us that the eurostars she would like to work with are Cornelia Jacobs and Alexander Rybak, while “Hold me closer” is her favorite song for Eurovision 2022.
Just before the end of the interview, Elsie offered us a part of her acapella song.
