Norway’s public television, NRK, is once again organizing the national final Melodi Grand Prix for the selection of its Eurovision entry in Liverpool this May. A few minutes ago, the songs of the artists of the third semi-final were released!
There will be nine finalists this year. The 21 total artists were divided into three semi-finals of seven with the top three from each semi-final receiving the ticket to the grand final of MGP 2023!
Saturday, 14 January: First Semi-Final (Song Announcement on Monday, 9 January) Saturday, 21 January: Second Semi-Final (Song Announcement on Monday, 16 January)
- Saturday, 28 January: Third Semi-Final (Song Announcement on Monday, 23 January)

The participants of the second semi-final
The last three tickets for the MGP grand final will be claimed by:
Skrellex – “Love Again”
Tiril Beisland – “Break It”
Akuvi – “Triumph”
Atle Pettersen – “Masterpiece”
Eline Thorp – “Not Meant to Be”
Maria Celin – “Freya”
Stig van Eijk – “Someday”
We remind you that this year’s Melodi Gran Prix is quite different from the previous ones, as there are no duels or second chance round. In each semi-final, only the Norwegian television audience is able to vote, while in the final, for the first time since 2019, there will also be an international jury that will determine 50% of the result.
The songs are published every Monday before the semi-final in which they are competing. Melodi Grand Prix 2023 is taking place at the Spectrum in Trondheim and is hosted by Arian Engebø and Stian Thorbjørnsen.
