Sofie Fjellvang wins Melodi Grand Prix semi-final four
Maria Mohn “Fly” vs. Alexandra Joner “Hasta La Vista”
Last time she graced the MGP stage, Maria Mohn performed as part of a duo alongside another of tonight’s semi-finalists, Kim Wigaard. Her song “Fly” is a haunting yet uplifting track about perseverance.
In her performance, Maria wore a goddess-worthy white gown and stood front and centre stage as four drummers surrounded her. Stellar vocals, but what else did we expect from a professional vocal coach?
No relation to Hurricane, Norwegian-Cuban triple threat singer, dancer and actress Alexandra Joner is bringing a pinch of Latin flair to MGP with “Hasta La Vista”. She’s back at Norway’s Eurovision selection after one previous attempt to represent her country in 2015 with “Cinderella”.
Alexandra delivered the fuego tonight. She started out strong with dancers forming a line behind her and giving some “LoveWave”-esque handography. Despite some awkwardly-dark lighting, she did well to recreate the Ibiza strip atmosphere.
Result: Maria Mohn wins
Kim Wigaard “La Melodia” vs. Sofie Fjellvang “Made of Glass”
Classically-trained vocalist Kim Wigaard, 33, is giving MGP another shot, this time with “La Melodia”. His former duet partner — Maria Mohn — is already through to the gold duel. Will he be joining her in the final battle for the golden ticket?
Kim’s performance delivered the shock factor. He wore an intricately-embellished golden blazer, and the camera panned down to reveal an enormous golden skirt — Aliona Moon, Elina Nechayeva style.
Our readers’ favourite ahead of tonight’s semi-final, 21-year-old Sofie Fjellvang is going for MGP gold with “Made Of Glass”. The Voice finalist is bidding to represent Norway with a track co-penned by Melodi Grand Prix hall-of-famer and Eurovision alum Kjetil Mørland of “A Monster Like Me” fame.
In tonight’s performance, Sofie stood centre stage as the cameras panned around huge panes of glass. She wore a flesh-coloured two-piece, studded with rhinestones. The performance gives off similar vibes to former MGP champion “Icebreaker”, and Sofie’s vocals are fabulous — as expected.
