After a spectacular season opener, Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix 2021 is back for semi-final two on Saturday 23 January. And while local fans can catch the country’s Eurovision selection by switching their televisions to NRK 1, international viewers will need to try alternative means.

This semi-final will see five acts perform — four semi-finalists and one pre-qualified act. The four semi-finalists are:
- Daniel Owen “Psycho”
- Ketil Stokkan “My Life is OK”
- Maria Solheim “Nordlyset”
- Raylee “Hero”
The four acts will be split into two duelling pairs. The public will vote for their favourite in each duel, with the two winners progressing to the “Gold Duel”. The public will then vote once more. The winner of the gold duel will win the semi-final and qualify directly to the grand final. The eliminated acts will remain in contention for a wildcard spot in the final, which will be decided later on in the season.
In addition to the duels, one pre-qualified act will perform:
- Stavangerkameratene “Barndomsgater”
There are three more pre-qualified acts. They will showcase their entries later in the season:
- Kaja Rode – “Feel Again” (29 January)
- Atle Pettersen – “World On Fire” (5 February)
- Rein Alexander – “Eyes Wide Open” (12 February)
Semi-final one saw Blåsemafian feat. Hazel nab a spot in the grand final with “Let Loose”. TIX and KEiiNO also showcased their pre-qualified entries.
