IMERIKA Melodi Grand Prix 2021

Just hours before the opening credits roll on the fifth and final semi-final of Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix 2021, we can reveal the act that our readers are backing — IMERIKA with “I Can’t Escape”.

IMERIKA is your favourite to win semi-final five of Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix

After counting a total of 967 votes, we can confirm that IMERIKA is the clear favourite in tonight’s semi. “I Can’t Escape” picked up 566 votes, which amounts to a massive 58.53% of all votes cast. IMERIKA is also soaring high with the bookies. She’s been trading at odds of 1.33 throughout the week.

Erika Dahlen already has a presence in MGP – she’s one of the songwriters on “Feel Again”, by directly qualified act Kaja Rode. Erika previously studied at Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts and now performs under the name IMERIKA. Her MGP entry “I Can’t Escape” looks at the struggles of moving on after a break-up. She says, “It felt right to participate with this song, and it is an interesting mismatch with me on this MGP stage.”

Her ribbity-meowish vocal mannerisms are just a tiny bit unsettling.

Excited for tonight’s show, I am backing Imerika – I love her song and she seems like a really lovely person from the interview you did with her.

As to the wildcard, I am really hoping that Pages makes it, I think it deserves a place in the final.

And as to the overall winner, it is going to be very close and exciting. I really like TIX but my heart remains with KeiiNO, their song really connects with me on a deep, emotional level.

It is going to be very exciting!!

By now, Imerika is my joint favorite, together with TIX. If it were up to me, those two should battle it out.
