In 2013, Adelén finished second to Margaret Berger in Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix. Earlier this year, Stian “Staysman” Thorbjørnsen came third in the same competition, losing out to Morland & Debrah Scarlett. But this weekend, one of them will become a winner, as both battle it out to become the 2015 Skal vi Danse champion!
The eleventh series of Norway’s version of Dancing With The Stars began in late August, and over the course of 11 weeks celebs such as “I Like You So Much Better When You’re Naked” singer Ida Maria and shaman Gro-Helen Tørum have fallen by the wayside. And now only the “Bombo” hitmaker and pizza aficionado remain.
But who will win? Statistically it’s Adelén’s to lose. She’s topped the judges’ leader board eight times and received three 40s. By comparison, Staysman has only finished on top once and has just one perfect score to his name. However, with the public accounting for 50% of the final result anything could happen. All will be known on Saturday, with the action kicking off at 19.30 CET on TV2.
Who do you think should win? And would you like either of them to return to MGP? Comment below.

Eurovision and the Dancing With The Stars franchise have been cross-pollinating for some time now. Over the years we’ve seen Blue’s Simon Webbe, Lulu, Stella Mwangi and Paula Seling (to name just a few) take to the dance floor. And Belgium’s Loic Nottet is currently wowing judges on the French edition.
