Melodi Grand Prix fans will recognise Silya for her 2012 entry ‘Euphoria’ which shared a name with that year’s record-breaking winner sung by Loreen in Baku.
Though Bergh hasn’t had an experience of adult Eurovision, he hasn’t been far away and has hosted Melodi Grand Prix Junior.
Silya told NRK: “ I think it will, if possible, be even more fun to take part as a presenter rather than as an artist. Now I do not have to compete, I’ll just enjoy it!”
Bergh is hoping for a new challenge of singing and dancing to keep the audience entertained: “Presenting with Silya means that we can show even more than usual!”
Melodi Grand Prix will this year be a single night Grand Final extravaganza on March 14th. The show will be the 30th anniversary of Norway’s first victory and the 20th anniversary of its 2nd victory.
A 54-piece live orchestra will accompany each of the competing acts who will be announced next year through NRK.
MGP submissions rose by 30% this year, but only 10 of the 800 submitted songs will make it to the stage. With such a competitive selection process we’re hoping Oslo delivers the goods y’all!
If you’re interested in attending Melodi Grand Prix 2015 tickets are on sale NOW and prices start from 270.00 NOK.
Norway last made the final with Carl Espen and ‘Silent Storm’ which placed 8th in Copenhagen this year:
