It’s taken five semi-finals and a two-part second-chance round but Norway have finally decided. On Saturday ten acts competed in the final of Melodi Grand Prix 2022 and sang for a spot at Eurovision. In the end the banana-coloured wolves from outer space won — that’s Subwoolfer — won with their song “Give That Wolf a Banana.”
Of the ten acts in the grand final, five were pre-qualified, four acts made it through by winning their semi-final and one lucky semi-finalist won the second-chance wildcard. But no matter how they got to the grand final, everyone had to start from scratch.
The ten acts performed their songs and then faced the first round of voting.
From there, producers revealed the top four acts — Sofie Fjellvang, Elsie Bay, Subwoolfer and NorthKid. After a quick vote only two could move on to the gold final: NorthKid and Subwoolfer.
They performed again and, after an exciting period of voting, Subwoolfer won the Gold Duel and were crowned the champion of Melodi Grand Prix 2022. They will represent Norway at Eurovision 2022.
