Few words for the artists

1. Mathilde SPZ ft. Chris Archer & Slam Dunk: “Woman Show”

Mathilde SPZ is a powerhouse of an artist who has been writing and performing her own songs since the age of nine. With an impressive track record of singing at various festivals and stages, she captivates tens of thousands of fans annually with her energetic stage presence. In the context of MGP, she’s not going for a “one-man-show” but presenting her “Woman Show” – a party anthem for the introverts!

2. Fredrik Halland: “Stranded”

At 16, Fredrik Halland moved from Bergen to Los Angeles to pursue his dreams. After a year at the Musicians Institute and touring with American artist Colbie Caillat, he ventured into the studio as a songwriter, producer, and guitarist.

3. Myra: “Heart on Fire”

Myra, an award-winning songwriter and artist from Bergen, has carved her place in the Norwegian music scene with hits like “Hjemløs i egen by” and “Dovre faller” over the past few years.

4. Gothminister: “We Come Alive”

GOTHMINISTER, the brainchild and alter ego of Bjørn Alexander Brems, is a nighttime persona. By day, he’s a lawyer based in Oslo, but by night, GOTHMINISTER emerges, expressing his creativity through impressive costumes and music.

5. Ingrid Jasmin: “Eya”

Ingrid Jasmin, raised in Telemark – a stronghold of Norwegian folk music – with family ties to Latin America, brings a rich background to her musical journey. Studying flamenco alongside traditional Norwegian music, she set the tone for her debut album “Luna,” which won the Spellemann 2022 award in the Open class category.

6. Margaret Berger: “Oblivion”

A familiar name in the competition, Margaret Berger secured victory in MGP 2013 and clinched fourth place in Eurovision with the song “I Feed You My Love.”


As a reminder, this year’s Melodi Grand Prix will take place with the same format as last year, as there will be no duels or second chance roundsThree artists will qualify from each semi-final in which only the Norwegian TV audience will vote, while the final will for once again feature an international jury that will determine 40% of the result.

The songs will be published each Monday before the semi-final in which they are to compete. Melodi Grand Prix 2024 will take place at the Spectrum in Trondheim with Marion Ravn and Fredrik Solvang as hosts. The schedule is as follows:

  • First Semi-Final: January 13th
  • Second Semi-Final: January 20th
  • Third Semi-Final: January 27th
  • Grand Final: February 3rd

The previous MGP winner and Norway’s representative at Eurovision 2023 was Alessandra with her song “Queen of Kings” and finished 5th in the Grand Final, continuing the country’s qualification streak for the sixth year.
