It’s chilly out, but Agnete, Norway’s Eurovision 2016 singer, is bringing the heat.

She has just revealed the official music video for her song “Icebreaker“.

Set amid tundra, ice and midnight sun, it’s a dub-step tribute to Norway — and one that conveys the notion of isolation and hope oh-so-well.

Agnete – Icebreaker

The video is simple, but effective. Norway has taken the ‘standing-artist-singing’ video to another level by replacing the typical chroma with an immense snowed moorland.

Throughout the clip Agnete channels her inner Sami princess and serves tons of pain and drama — yet she remains in total control of her face, which looks absolutely radiant and serene.

The Norwegian Eurovision video has been among the most highly anticipated of the year.

In fact, we’ve heard rumours about its release for almost a month now.

The release was likely delayed because of Agnete’s unfortunate illness, from which we hope she has fully recovered.

Thankfully the wait was so worth it!

The video suggests that our girl may include interpretative dance on stage at Eurovision.

At the very least it’s a reminder that she knows how to work her camera angles and that she can slay in a white dress.

Despite our love for the song and video, we’re still scratching our heads as to why the video premiered on ABC, a Spanish newspaper web site.

Apparently Norway and Spain have Eurovision connections apart from “Bombo” babe Adelén.

What do you think about Agnete’s video? Should the dancer go to Stockholm as well? Share your thoughts below!

@David Who: The video was not uploaded on her official Youtube-channel. That’s why it was removed. But she will upload it later today 😀

Colin: that’s odd. The video was on YouTube before, but now appears to have gone missing. Maybe it got too cold, haha

I love “Icebreaker”. It is my number 3 song & it is still pushing upwards.
The video looks awesome. I would have included more long shots to give us extra views of the landscape. Agnete looks stunning.
I am unsure if the dancer should go to Stockholm. Sometimes they are distracting. Better not risk it. Agnete’s vocals are the star of the show.

Almost no makeup but still beautiful, as the song and video. The music video is recorded at Finnmarkvidda (north in Norway). The place she is from.

Love the video, glad they kept it rather simple but beautiful and effective.
Love the song, among my top 5 and will hopefully do well.
I hope they will showcase the dancer better on the Globen stage. In the national final you could hardly see her which was odd.

What a beautiful video, totally in the spirit of the song. Icebreaker is certainly my big favorite of the semi final 2 and one of the songs I would like to see take an ultimate win as well. All the best to Agnete and Norway. 🙂

Lo siento mucho…pero a los Españoles, no nos gustan los paises que hagan trampa…imaginaros que cogeis a 12.000 marineros pescadores de otro pais que no sea el tuyo, lo ponesis a trabajar toda la vida en la industria de la pesca, pagando impuestos y con la seguridad social de ese segundo pais descontandote de la nomina mensual. Y cuando estos marireneros van a juvilarse, le dais una patada en el culo y le deciis que como son extrajeros, no tienen derecho a la juvilacion, este es el gobierno de Noruega …ese pais tan moderno y adelantado.VERGUENZA.

Yeah, great video. It gets right to the point, and it’s nice to see a modern, almost minimalist, take on the song work quite well. Did Agnete actually stand on an ice flow without a hat on? No wonder she got ill!!
I have no bad things to say about the video; i like it. 🙂 (It’s just the song itself that I can’t stand.)

She’s so Nordic! Really starting to like this song and it’s now in my top 10.

I hope she leaves the god awful dress from the national final in Oslo though, she can’t move in it. It will affect her live performance as it did Margaret Berger who wore a similar dress.

Heia Norgeeeeee!
