Tonight: The first semi-final in Norway!
Tonight marks the beginning of the new concept for the Norwegian Melodi Grand Prix, a festival of shows taking place over two weekends!
In three semi-finals that will air over the next three consecutive evenings, the artists for the final airing next week will be selected.
Tonight: The first semi-final
The first five participants will perform their songs live tonight and the Norwegian people has the power to decide which three artists will make it to the final next Saturday, March 15.
