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.

Here’s when and how you can watch semi-final one of MGP 2022.

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.

Duel One

  • Mira Craig – “We Still Here”

  • Eline Noelia – “Ecstasy”

Duel Two

  • 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”.

Will you be watching semi-final one in Norway? Which act are you most excited for? Let us know below.

Voted for Mira. Apparently it’s possible for non-Norwegians

The Banana Wolf song isn’t even funny. Discoteque was soo much better. Norwegian humour is a bit boring. And why are they hiding, it’s not like anyone remember Ylvis anymore.

It is not a funny song, it is an allegory on the covid pandemic (vaccine is the banana etc.). The fact that they disguised in a “funny” wrap, is a genius.

There was a special today on San Marino’s SRT about Una voce per San Marino. Please cover that. Don’t dismiss San Marino, please.

They’ve already split them? They’re not going to do it live on-air like they used to?

I kind of like that they split them beforehand. Some of the final duels felt anti-climactic considering it was, in some cases, clear who would win.
