Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix 2021 reaches its midpoint on Saturday 23 January with semi-final three. 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:
- Dinaye “Own Yourself”
- Big Daddy Karsten “Smile”
- Ole Hartz “Vi er Norge”
- Emmy “Witch Woods”
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:
- Kaja Rode “Feel Again”
There are two more pre-qualified acts. They will showcase their entries later in the season:
- 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. In the second semi, Raylee blew the competition away with “Hero”. Finalists Stavangerkameratene debuted “Barndomsgater”.
