Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix 2022 kicks off on Saturday 15 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 semi-finalists have been split into two duels.
Mira Craig – “We Still Here”
- Eline Noelia – “Ecstasy”
Frode Vassel – “Black Flowers”
Trollfest – “Dance Like a Pink Flamingo”
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, pre-qualified act Elsie Bay will perform her entry “Death of Us”.
