Norway: New problems in MGP’s online voting!

After the uproar that broke out, for set results in the first semifinal, problems were also noted in the voting of the second semifinal of MGP 2021, further blurring the credibility of the process.

According to the country’s public television, there were technical issues with the voting system, as many users with older mobile devices were unable to vote. Of course, as it was emphasized, this problem did not affect the results of the vote, which of course remains to be seen if it will be valid, when we will have the detailed announcement of the results, after the final of MGP 2021.

This is the umpteenth time things are not going as planned in the MGP. Last year, during the final, the voting system collapsed, and a 20-member committee selected the 4 contestants who advanced to the second phase of the final.

We remind you that the winner of the second semifinal of MGP 2021 was Raylee with Hero. On Saturday 30/1, the third semifinal takes place, where another song will get the ticket for the final, while we will have the opportunity to listen to the song of Kaja Rode“Feel Again”, which is one of the direct finalists.

Below you can watch our interview with Blåsemafian, the winners of the first semifinal:

Stay tuned to Eurovisionfun for all the news, regarding MGP 2021!


Norway: Is Raylee’s “Hero” the answer to “Holding Out For A Hero”? (Editorial)

Since last night, Eurovision Bubble has been dealing with the impressive performance of Raylee in the second semifinal of MGP 2021, with Hero. A song with a clear 80s sound and an appearance that referred to this decade, but also with lyrics that many commented on social media, right in my opinion, that it is essentially the “answer” to Holding Out For A Hero by Bonnie Tyler.

Bonnie Tyler may feel weak and wait for her hero to save her from the difficulties she faces, but Raylee does not need anyone! As she mentions in her song, she feels quite strong and does not need any heroes, since she has enough self-confidence to fight any obstacles in her life!

This time a different story
You’re not gonna steal my glory
Some things you can’t do for me
Won’t let you come to my rescue

Oh-oh, I don’t need a hero, I don’t need a hero
Oh-oh, baby, look at me go, I don’t need a hero
Don’t need a hero
I don’t need a hero, no
Sorry ’bout your ego
I don’t, I don’t, I don’t need a hero

So beyond the costume, stage, musical reference of the whole act in the 80s and the lyrics with this clever contrast in one of the most famous songs of the decade, travels us back in time in a very beautiful way. Of course, the most iconic moment is at the end, when Raylee represents a scene from the 1983 film, Flashdance, also one of the most iconic films of the decade.

Those who loved this decade, it was normal to love Raylee’s Hero, for all the reasons mentioned above. After all, the 80s are in fashion and are everywhere, not just in music. Of course, there were also negative reactions, since for some it all reminded of carnivals. However, Raylee certainly achieved her goal, as Hero is the topic of discussion throughout the fandom and besides, it brought interest in a national final that many had predicted last week that KEiiNO would win easily. Norway after the end of yesterday’s semifinal, went up three places in the bets; maybe this is indicative…

Norway: The ticket to the final of MGP 2021 is a battle for two! (Odds)

Stina Talling and Jorn battle for qualification for the MGP 2021 final is what the odds show us at the moment. So according to all the betting companies, Stina Talling is the favorite to win, but Jorn is reducing the distance between them.
