Norway : Gåte considered withdrawing from Eurovision Grand Final!

Only 2 days after the end of the Grand Final of Eurovision 2024, it was reported through the Norwegian media that the Norwegian band Gåte was almost to withdraw from the Grand Final.

The guitarist of the band, Magnus Børmark, told;

Withdrawning was on our plans until the last second. We eventually had constructive talks with the EBU. Things were just good enough for it to be implemented.

Magnus Børmark says that there was a strong confrontation with the organiser, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). He believes the artists were forced into a political role and were involuntarily given the responsibility of carrying out an extremely complicated conflict.


Norway participated in Eurovision 2024 with the band Gåte and the song “Ulveham”, finnishing in the 25th place – last – in the Grand Final of the Contest.
