Semi-final 2 of Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix 2023 is just a few hours away. We’ll be treated to performances by another seven acts, all hoping to claim one of three qualifier spots to the grand final.
After all seven songs were released at the start of the week, we asked y’all to vote for the acts you wanted to qualify.
We received 2,103 valid votes. And now we can give you the results…
Elsie Bay a favourite in Melodi Grand Prix 2023 semi-final 2
Scooping up a third of the vote is Elsie Bay with her ballad “Love You in a Dream”. She secured 33.67% of all those cast, which is 708 votes specifically.
Having made the top four at MGP 2022, she’s back for another attempt and this time aiming to go all the way. Based on these results, she hasn’t lost her fans from last year and is still a favourite amongst the acts of 2023 as well.
Finishing in second place is JONE. His entry “Ekko Inni Meg” (“Echo Inside Me”), with featured vocals from Silke, has become an instant hit with fans thanks to its catchy blend of techno beats and Norwegian lyrics. JONE was awarded with 489 votes — that’s 23.25% of the total.
If the results were up to y’all, the final qualifier spot would go to ELLA A. She’s bringing a booty-hypnotic sprinkling of Brazilian influences to keep our focus right on her, specifically on her “Waist”. In the poll, ELLA picked up 389 votes (18.50%).
