Semi-Final 5 — 13 February 2021
Time: 19:55 CET to 21:15 CET
The programme will be streamed live on NRK’s dedicated Melodi Grand Prix portal. It will be available to watch worldwide and will remain online for catch-up viewing after the original broadcast. The selection concludes next Saturday, 20 February. There will also be a wildcard episode on Monday.
This semi-final will see five acts perform — four semi-finalists and one pre-qualified act. The four semi-finalists are:
- Ane.Fin “Walking In My Sleep”
- TuVeia “Bli med meg på gar’n”
- IMERIKA “I Can’t Escape”
- RIVER “Coming Home”
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 next week.
In addition to the duels, one pre-qualified act will perform:
- Rein Alexander with“Eyes Wide Open”
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”. Emmy took victory in the third show with “Witch Woods”. Kaja Rode premiered “Feel Again”. KiiM won semi-final four as Atle Pettersen sang “World on Fire”.
