The race to Turin wraps up tonight in Norway at the Melodi Grand Prix 2022 grand final.

Subwoolfer a favourite MGP 2022 and sing for Norway at Eurovision

Current favourite to win with the bookmakers, the mysterious Subwoolfer deliver an absurdist retelling of Little Red Riding Hood with their perplexing track “Give That Wolf a Banana”. They’re through to the MGP final as automatic qualifiers. In our poll, Subwoolfer came out on top with a massive 1,458 votes — that’s 37.52% of all votes cast.

The identity of everyone’s favourite yellow-suited humanoid wolves remains a secret. Fans have suggested the men behind the mask could be anybody from former MGP champion JOWST to “What Does The Fox Say?” hitmakers Ylvis. But one thing is clear: they’ve made waves with our fans, and they’re inching closer towards that golden ticket to Turin.

Our readers awarded the wiwibloggs’ silver medal to Elsie Bay with “Death of Us”. Another automatic qualifier, Elsie is delivering a haunting string-laden ballad. In our poll, Elsie Bay picked up 947 votes — that’s 24.37% of the total vote.

Rounding out the top three in a distant third place is Oda Gondrosen with “Hammer of Thor”. She stole the thunder in semi-final three, and now with mjolnir at her side she’s ready to battle her way to Turin. Our readers awarded Oda Gondrosen 339 votes — that’s 8.72% of all votes cast.

They use only televoting in Norway. That means advantage for Subwoolfer, I think.

This will flop on the ESC… no chance that jurys will like this song a moderate place by televoters is not enough… personally it´s not my cup of tea sorry Norway

Would have liked to see Daniel Lukas in this final line-up at least, but I guess his song didn’t contain enough “epic” screeching like the “Hammer of Thor” one does…

It’s %100 televoting they will win… Elsie could beat them if there was a jury but i definetely feel Subwoolfer is going to win tonight.

Leaving my taste out of discussion here, it would be really sad for all the Semi Acts if they would be overthrown by a direct qualifier again…

Yeah, that’s something that I’ve thought a lot of recently. A lot of casual MGP viewers here in Norway don’t bother to watch the semis anyway, but this trend really does help to enforce that mentality. The semis feel a bit pointless where there are pre-qualified acts.

Yeah, it’s very likely another prequalified act will win MGP, Which does question the point of having semifinals if no semi finalist ever win MGP. You might as well just go back to the one day contest that MGP used to be where all the songs perform at an equal level.

True. But I also think that despite not having to take part until the grand final, they would probably would have been at a disadvantage in terms of exposure to viewers had they not been able to perform alongside the semifinalists during the heats.

But all in all, I think perhaps NRK should rethink the idea of having direct finalists if they intend to keep the multi-show format for another year.

Oda is still my number 1, but I’d be very happy with Subwoolfer at Eurovision (Elsie Bay as well).
