After counting 2,223 votes, we can now reveal the results.
Maria Celin a favourite in Melodi Grand Prix 2023 semi-final 3
The clear favourite amongst our readers is Maria Celin. Her song “Freya” earned a third of the vote — 34.14%, which is 759 votes specifically.
After previously competing on The Voice, Maria is now trying her luck at another music talent show. Although she didn’t win the former, it seems many think she could be a strong player for the Melodi Grand Prix trophy.
In second place is returnee Akuvi. Having been an automatic qualifier at MGP 2020, she now has to battle it out in the semi-finals. But if the results were determined by y’all then Akuvi would be a safe qualifier and back in the grand final once again. “Triumph” picked up 486 votes — 21.86% of the total.
It was a tight race for your final qualifier spot. But in the end it was Tiril who secured the bronze medal. The singer’s debut at Melodi Grand Prix looks set to be good one. You awarded her entry “Break It” with 307 votes (13.81%).

Lols. The worst prediction ever
Unfortunately, Maria’s live performance was somewhat disappointing. Both her voice and the staging did not live up to our expectations. This was a tough semifinal. Eline made it to the final, but that was mainly because her song is so good. She has to work on her performance. Hopefully, her qualification boosts her confidence. Skrellex and Atle just owned the stage and both nailed their performances, both vocally and in terms of performance.
Wow, so Freya is out… shocker.
I was excited for Akuvi when she was announced and she fulfilled my expectations brillantly. Atle song is incredibly beautiful, if performed very well I see big competition for Ulrikke and Elsie, like Akuvi could be competition for Unami Tsunami as they are among the freshest MGP 2023 acts, like Alessandra and Jone are direct competition with their typical nordic style. Maria song is very good, big “Bones” vibes with this one, but in the middle of the song I lost interest, I don’t know really why, the Freya repetition annoys me a little but let’s see the live performance,… Read more »
I’m SO rooting for Eline tonight. Not Meant To Beis such a masterpiece, so I really hope she’ll deliver. From what I’ve read, she has a history in theatre (production) so I hope we can expect a real show <3
ok freya is a masterpiece
but yall are straight up NAPPING on tiril
she has such a sweet personality and an amazing voice but most of all ugh break it is so good
i love her and her song she even followed me on twt i rlly hope she makes it through or il break some community guidelines
I believe people are sleeping on Skrellex. Yes, it’s a super cliche song but it’s also 100% fun and positivity delivered from a performer that stands out from the bunch. Watch this space! 🙂
Maria with ‘Freya’ is my favourite!
But she really needs to have a good live performance….Last week, Ella with ‘Waist’ was in our favourite top three but unfortunately it didn’t win the ticket for the final.
The kind of self-aggrandizing anthem that Akuvi has here just does nothing for me.
Maria Celin is a vocal powerhouse and my bet is she will become the favorite from this year’s MGP tonight ?
My dear eurovision fans!
This is nothing related to this topic, but i think you should listen the most recent song from Luísa Sobral!
Pay attention to the lyrics and the details on the video.
This needs to be shared!
Tiril below akuvi is just a joke, break it is the best song of the selection but unfortunately Tiril didn’t make an online reality show to promote it and now the fandom is ignoring her
OH MY GOD YES
and they did her dirty with the running order
but they promoted atle and put him to close
as if he wasnt already famous enough, at least hes not a fav but im still worried hes insanely popular in norway
These results look realistic to me
Hoping to see the same tonight, but I have a feeling Atle or Eline might sneak in
exact same for me
i just rlly hope to see tiril through
Eline will qualify lol
