Norway: A lot of changes in Melodi Grand Prix 2023!

The Norwegian Public Broadcaster has announced some major changes for MGP 2023! There will be no automatic finalists, fewer semi-finalists, but with more artists!

MGP 2023 will be completed into four nights. Three semi-finals and a grand final; that’s the programme of Norway’s national final for Eurovision 2023. MGP 2023 will be hosted by Arian Engebø and Stian ‘Staysman’ Thorbjørnsen, both very popular, both on TV and radio.

100% televoting will be used in the three semi-finals, while in the final there will be, for the first time since 2019, an international jury that will determine 50% of the result.

Seven songs will compete in each semi-final. The first three songs according to the votes will advance to the grand final. There will be no duels, no second chance round.

The 21 artists will be announced on January 4th. On the same day, we will also find out in which semi-final they will compete. Songs will be revealed on a weekly basis. The Grand Final will take place at the Spectrum in Trondheim, where it was held in 2020. The MGP 2023 schedule is as follows:

  • 1st Final – 14/1/2023
  • 2nd Semi-Final – 21/1/2023
  • 3rd Semi-Final – 28/1/2023
  • Final – 4/2/2023

This year Norway was represented by Subwoolfer with Give That Wolf A Banana, which finished in tenth place in the final!

Norway: Is TIX the astronaut behind Subwoolfer?

A few hours before the start of the first semi-final, the astronaut DJ who will represent Norway at Eurovision 2022 with Subwoolfer seems to have been revealed. TIX who represented Norway in last year’s Eurovision Song Contest with “Fallen Angel” seems to be the DJ accompanying Subwoolfer!

This is what Eurovision Norway’s journalist, Morten Westgaard said when he learned the DJ’s identity:

Insane! I’d never imagine that. There are probably a lot of people who are curious about who is behind Subwoolfer, but now we know that the DJ Astronaut is Andreas Haukeland, aka Tix.

Subwoolfer will compete in the 16th place of the first semi-final with “Give That Wolf A Banana“, you can listen to their entry here:

Eurovision 2022: Norway’s Second Rehearsal!

The second country to rehearse for the second time is Norway with their wolves! This staging is very similar to the performances we’ve seen from Subwoolfer at MGP and the Eurovision parties – Keith and Jim are supported by three backing dancers in yellow suits and DJ astronaut is overseeing proceedings from their elevated pulpit. We know some people think Subwoolfer are a novelty act, but we beg to differ – it’s a really polished routine and both Keith and Jim deliver great vocal performances. The dance routine is PRECISION.

About the Second Rehearsal

The performance is very slick and polished. They managed to use the MGP text that’s visible for TV viewers only. The Astronaut is in front of the kinetic sun and Subwoolfer are joined by three backup dancers. Vocally an amazing performance. This is so going to be loved by audience, still not sure how juries will react to this. The camera angles are perfect! The third performance of this semi-final that could do very well (after Ukraine and Greece). Very memorable!

Eurovision 2022: Norway’s First Rehearsal!

The next country on the stage of Eurovision Song Contest 2022 is Norway. Subwoolfer with the song“Give That Wolf A Banana”  are ready for his first rehearsal on the stage of PalaOlimpico in Turin!

Everything about Subwoolfer:

Subwoolfer, the biggest band in the galaxy, got together 4.5 billion years ago on their home planet… the Moon.

Since then, Keith and Jim have conquered the music scene on every other planet, making them the most successful pop group ever… so they tell us.

On Sunday 20 July, 1969, a prophet named Neil appeared to them, and was soon hailed as ‘the man with the strongest arms’. He promised to return telling them he would help them become the biggest band on his planet, too; but only once they had written the greatest song in the universe, sung in his native tongue, English.

Neil never returned. However, they found DJ Astronaut. And now, armed with the greatest song in existence, Give That Wolf a Banana, they have come to earth to claim their musical throne by performing at the most important and prestigious musical event in the history of the world: the Eurovision Song Contest 2022.

The Rehearsal

This staging is very similar to the performances we’ve seen from Subwoolfer at MGP and the Eurovision parties – Keith and Jim are supported by three backing dancers in yellow suits and DJ astronaut is overseeing proceedings from their elevated pulpit.

We know some people think Subwoolfer are a novelty act, but we beg to differ – it’s a really polished routine and both Keith and Jim deliver great vocal performances. The dance routine is PRECISION.
