Norway: New Nordic party in Oslo! | Big names already confirmed!

The Nordic Music Celebration started back in February 2023 as a collaboration between OGAE Norway, ESC Norge, and Eurovision Norway, in close collaboration with professional partners in the music industry. The initiative started with the idea of having a concert where we can showcase the best of the Nordic acts from both national selections and representatives in Eurovision together on one stage, where we invite fans to honour their icons. And also, with our wide network we have many connections to similar events and Eurovision artists in Europe, we want to invite some of the iconic Eurovision artists from countries outside the Nordics to perform for their fans here in Norway. This is a great way to gather the Eurovision loving fan-community together in a Nordic celebration.

What can you expect in Oslo?

Håkon Røssum has been leading the work with the project since the start with the rest of the teams from ESC Norge and OGAE Norway, as well as key players from the Netherlands and says:

“Fans have been wanting a pre-party for Eurovision here for a long time, especially since we have a high level on our acts and this year top 3 televote favourites were all from the Nordics (Finland, Sweden and Norway). We want to honour the artists, new and iconic in time, all together on one stage. We really hope to see some of the next years Eurovision artists visiting Oslo as well on the end of their promo tour, just three weeks before the final in Malmø”

Former winners of the Eurovision Song Contest are already set to perform in April 2024

The first performers that are ready to take the stage is Alexander Rybak (Norway, 2009 winner, 2018), Bettan (Norway, 1985 winner, 1994, 1996 and Sweden 1982), Emmelie de Forest (Denmark, 2013 winner), Jone (MGP, 2023), Subwoolfer, (Norway, 2022 representatives), Hera Björk (Iceland 2010)  and Luke Black (Serbia, 2023).

Tickets already went on sale this Friday, today at 10:00 AM (CET) on

A ticket for the event will be NOK 850 for an early entrance and NOK 640 for an ordinary ticket. The Nordic Music Celebration is available for individuals aged 18 years and above due to venue regulations.

Tiril: It’s all about the song | Interview

Some days before the third semi final of MGP 2023, we had the joy to chat with Tiril from Norway. The singer is competing with the song “Break It” and talked with EurovisionFun’s Paschalis.

She talked about her song and why she decided to participate in MGP.

“Break It” is my entry. It’s written by my two favorite songwriters in Norway, Emma Steinbakken and Emelie Hollow and produced by Benjamin Pinkus and Lars Rosness. I’m also a songwriter, but I haven’t written anything in the song, I just asked to sing it. They liked what they heard and now I’m here and I couldn’t be more happy!
The song is really good and suits me very well.

It’s an amazing oppotunity. I always wanted to be an artist. This is a great way to start my career. I can show myself to the world and meet people who like this kind of music.

She also revealed a few things about her stage performance.

I love the stage show that we’ve put together. It will look very dramatic. It’s all about the song. I wanted it to be about my voice. There’s not going to be a lot of things happening. I’m also going to wear red, my favorite color! I’m super excited about the dress that I’m going to wear.

We asked her opinion about the other MGP contestants.

That’s hard to say. There’s a lot of people I knew and new faces. It’s hard to choose a favorite. I think Ulrikke might be the strongest competitor. She has a lot of fans from before and already won MGP. Her song is amazing this year so I’m scared of her, but also very happy to be in the same competition.

She talked about Eurovision and older entries she likes.

Eurovision is a tradition for me. I love watching it every year. It feels like New Year’s Eve because you get to stay up late and watch so many countries.

I just remember very well Margaret Berger with “Feed you my love”. I loved the song and the stage show. That’s my favorite one. When I was in school I emailed Margaret Berger and told her that I want to be an artist and asked to work with her for a day and I loved it.

My childhood favorite was Lena with “Satellite”. There’s also “Euphoria” which is one of my favorites.

Finally as you can see in the video, she sang a little part of her entry, Break It.

Thank you for your support and love. I appreciate every kind word that I’ve gotten so far. It’s amazing!

Listen to “Break It” by Tiril:

We thank Tiril for her interview and wish her best luck!

JONE – I can’t wait to show the world our entry! | Exclusive interview

After the announcement of his participation in this year’s national final of Norway, MGP 2023, JONE gave an exclusive interview to EurovisionFun‘s Paschalis.

JONE is participating in the second semi final of this year’s MGP and he will try to represent his country at Eurovision 2023 with his song “Ekko inni meg“.

Some things about JONE

My real name is Jonas, I’m 27 years old and I live near Oslo. I’ve been working with music since I was 7 years old, started by playing the guitar. Then I learnt how to produce to music. From 2018 to 2021 I did a bachelor’s degree in producing and songwriting.

How he decided to participate in MGP

We figured out that we wanted to participate in MGP last year, we produced some demos, but didn’t manage to finish them and decided to participate next year. A producer contacted me. He participated in one of the songwriting camps and wanted to find the right vocalist for the song. He contacted me and asked me if I could try to record vocals. Stig Karlsen then called me and told me he loved the vocals.

What’s the song like

The song is like a heartbreak song, combined with norwegian folk music and edm party music. It’s a song that runs all over the place. It’s a high energy song, it’s what I normally like to produce. I fell in love with it since I listened to it for the first time.

What we’ll see on stage

Four dancers will be with me and the choreography is amazing. The rest is a secret! We’ve been working a lot with it and I can’t wait to show the world what it’s like.

Other MGP entries that he liked

There are two songs I like, Ulrikke’s Honestly and Alessandra’s Queen of Kings. Alessandra’s song is similar to mine and Ulrikke has an amazing voice and her song is really appealing. These are the two big competitors.

His favorite Norwegian Eurovision entry

Of course Alexander Rybak, I love Fairytale. That was the first time that I watched from MGP to the Eurovision Finals. TIX with Fallen Angel is one of my biggest idols. I take a lot of inspiration from him. He is an awesome guy and I’m so happy he participated in MGP and Eurovision.

My favorite Eurovision act of all time is Maneskin. I come from a rock background and I fell in love with that song. That was the highlight of Eurovision for me.

His message to the viewers and readers of Eurovisionfun

I really hope to come to Liverpool and participate in the biggest song contest that exists. I send my love to all of you and I hope everyone has a great time. I thank all of you who are rooting for me.

Watch the interview with JONE here:

Norway: Subwoolfer identity revealed ?

Last Saturday night, Subwoolfer won the Melodi Grand Prix final. Therefore, Norway will be represented by a masked and currently unidentified duo of artists in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin.

So far, neither the artists themselves, nor NRK, nor the record company, Universal, have revealed when the masks will finally fall and we will find out the identity of the duo.

However, the VG newspaper revealed that two artists who are rumored to be hiding behind the Subwoolfer are filming with Subwoolfer at the H3 Arena in Bærum, where the final took place on Saturday.

According to NRK, the recording is a back-up of the Eurovision performance, in case there are problems due to the pandemic or other prohibitive conditions in Turin.

In the parking lot outside the H3 Arena was a Volkswagen Up! registered with the Norwegian Public Administration in the name of Gaute Ormåsen (38). The artist participated in Idol in 2003, where he finished second.

There is also a Porsche, which is registered to the British Ben Adams (40), who was part of the boyband A1 in the late 90s. Adams has been living in Norway lately.

For the time being, both artists refused to comment.

A1 participated in Melodi Grand Prix 2010 and finished in the second place.

Ormåsen also participated in the Melodi Grand Prix in 2010, as well as in 2013.

We remind you that Norway has been drawn to compete in the First Semifinal on May 10. Specifically, they will appear in one of the positions 10-18.

Do you like the representatives of Norway this year?
