Melodi Grand Prix 2017

Hej Norge! Ten acts will battle it out tonight in Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix 2017. Only one of them will fly the Norwegian flag in Kyiv, and in the last few weeks, we’ve asked for your opinion in our poll.

The voting has been open for over a month and you guys have been busy bobbing your heads and casting your votes. With 1,773 votes cast in total, Ulrikke has emerged as your favourite with her dance track “Places“.

Ulrikke’s 480 votes represent 27% of the total. As if that wasn’t impressive enough, it’s almost double the amount of the second place act. Will she be able to slay as much in the final tonight?

1. Ulrikke – “Places”: 480 votes (27.07%)

In second place are Elin & the Woods. Their Sami inspired entry “First Step In Faith (Oadjebasvuhtii)” received a total of 241 votes. That’s around 14% of the total votes.

In our interview, Elin explains why she chose to participate in MGP: “I wanted a stage where I could do whatever I wanted. And Melodi Grand Prix is unlimited, you can do whatever you like with lighting, decorations, and that big stage.” As good a reason as we can think!

2. Elin & the Woods – “First Step in Faith (Oadjebasvuhtii)”: 241 votes (13.59%)

In third place, there’s Eurovision 2005 veteran Åge Sten Nilsen from Wig Wam and his new group Ammunition. The “Wrecking Crew” has amassed (or rather, smashed) a total of 204 votes, which makes just under 12% of the overall vote.

3. Ammunition – “Wrecking Crew”: 204 votes (11.51%)

Rounding the top five, we find Amina Sewali‘s “Mesterverk” and Ella‘s “Mamma boy” tied in fourth place with exactly 202 votes each. Below you can find the full results:

Ulrikke sounds like Astrid S in the beginning. Then the horrible chorus comes in and completely destroys the song :/

Either Ammunition or Elin & The Woods should be the winners if Norway want to assure they qualify this year.

Ulrikke is just too formulaic for Norway it’s sort of like Spain and it’s divas, they seem to like sending blonde ice queens with an electronic sound and it didn’t pay off for Agnete last year. If they are going to send one of the two blonde girls I think it should be Ella it’s a little different and it’s got a guilty pleasure vibe around it which could stand it in good stead

She could make the superfinal, but I don’t think she’ll win. Norway’s gonna pick a “weird” song this year, I feel. Either Elin & The Woods or Ammunition. Hopefully it’s the former.

I m feeling that Urlikke fan favorite from this bloggs, won t sound good live like last year Margaret from Poland in their national final

I think the best bet for Norway is to go for the guilty pleasure angle. Songs that are fun but are actually catchy and re listenable. For me that would be Mamma’s boy bu wrecking crew would also work. In my opinion Places tried and fails to be mainstream and first steps into faith doesn’t quite nail the ‘unusual but amazing song style’ approach and they’d be overshadowed overlooked at eurovision

My prediction that Ulrikke will be out of 4 super finalist
In super final go
1.Ammunition they love rock band
2.Jowst they love male duo with pop sound
3.Rune Rudberg Band country song had good placement in 2012
4.Ella
Instead of Ella maybe dark horse for me In Fusion.
In super final fihgt for win bettween Ammunition and Jowst and I think winner will be Ammunition.
My favorite is Ella
In past I predict winner in 2013,2015 who also my favorite, and my favorite was 2n in 2014, and 4 th in 2016.
