Stella Mwangi may have haba haba’d out of the semi-finals, and Tooji may have come last in the grand final, but Norway has very much gotten over its Eurovision woes. In the past three years the country has qualified for the final and placed in the top ten every time. Today Norwegian broadcaster NRK revealed some details for their Eurovision 2016 selection Melodi Grand Prix 2016 and they’re sticking with their MGP formula.

Depite changes in the production team, the actual contest remains largely the same. Just like last year, there will be just one MGP event. Ten songs will compete in the final, taking place on February 27. Once again the show will be hosted by SiLyA and Kåre Magnus Bergh.

The ten competing songs will be revealed in January. The final will again be held in the Oslo Spektrum arena, the MGP home for the past 15 years.

I really hope they bring back the live orchestra! It was so amazing to hear the songs preformed with live music like that, especially “Thunderstruck” sounded amazing.
