13/01: Eastern Norway semifinalists presented
06/01: First 9 of MGP competitors revealed

Preselection

Once again the Norwegian Eurovision entry will be chosen via the national final format NRK Melodi Grand Prix. There will be five semi-finals before the national final, one for each region of Norway (North, Central, West, South, East). The semifinals will be broadcasted in front of live audiences, from H3 Arena in Fornebu in the Oslo region. The semifinals will include four local artists from the specific region. They will compete in a cup, and it will be up to the televoters which of them qualifies for the national final in Trondheim. Five artists have pre-qualified for the Grand Final. They are chosen by a jury led by Stig Karlsen. These five artists will perform their songs in one semi-final each. The 2020 competition will not include a European jury. The winner of MGP 2020 will be strictly in the hands of the Norwegian viewers. Earlier plans were to involve 40 songs in the competition with Stig Karlsen explaining change to 25 songs format saying that they're focusing on quality over quantity.

Submission period for the show lasted from 2 March (date of the NRK MPG 2019) to 31 July 2019 (extended from original deadline of May 17). Around 600 entries were received. According to the rules, at least one songwriter has to be a Norwegian citizen. Each producer or songwriter allowed to send in up to 3 songs. "The content is very varied and the quality is good. In the open submission we received 600 entries, and we have actively gone out and invited 200 songwriters, record labels and producers to join. Five are directly qualified, and in the end we will have 10 finalists who will fight to represent Norway in the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam in May 2020. We have mainstream songs, typical folk favorites, songs that offer madness and entertainment and some more sophisticated. When we have as many as 25 artists / songs in all the finals, we can release a more colorful selection", says Stig Karlsen, who this year gives all the power to TV viewers. "The Melody Grand Prix has engaged people for 60 years. There has been a lot of joy, commitment and temperature and certainly also irritation. Every time, there are a million people who come along, and this time it is the viewers who fully vote out the winner."

The changes are made as part of the celebration of MGP's 60 years anniversary in 2020. It has been 31 years since the national final was held in a different city, and this will be only the third time in six decades the final is held outside of Oslo (The 1985 and 1989 contests were both held in Stavanger in Western Norway). "We are excited to take the national final to Trondheim next year. We hope the people of Trondheim are ready to create a massive celebration for everyone, near the middle of our sprawling country" says head of MGP, Stig Karlsen. Trondheim is the third largest city in Norway, and the regional capital of Trøndelag county. The final will be held in the arena Trondheim Spektrum.

"I can promise you great songs, amazing artists, pyrotechnics, confetti, fabulous hosts and everything you expect from MGP. And of course, we are so happy to welcome KEiiNO back to perform after the incredible year they've had," Karlsen says. Mayor of Trondheim Rita Ottervik adds: "It has been important to us that the arena should work well for culture, not just sports. According to feedback I have received from concert goers, there is great acoustics, which I think means a lot to the artists".

On 5 December, NRK has revealed that Ingrid Gjessing Linhave, Ronny Brede Aase and Kåre Magnus Bergh will host the Norwegian national selection. Kåre Magnus Bergh is known to MGP fans, having hosted MGP since 2015. Ronny Brede Aase is one of the newcomers, but not at all unknown to the Norwegian public. He has hosted Norway's most popular radio morning show for 10 years. This year, the show in its current form is slated to go off the air, and Brede Aase is eager to take on this new opportunity. "I am sure it will be an amazing anniversary of the competition, and I hope to show the viewers how excited I am about Melodi Grand Prix. I love MGP and have been a fan since I was a child. I remember being too young to stay up and watch the whole national final and having to listen to the end of the show on the radio in bed" says Brede Aase. The third host of MGP 2020, Ingrid Gjessing Linhave, is an experienced television host. She has her own childhood memories of Norway's biggest television show. "I have a tape at home with a recording of me as a child, pretending to both be the MGP host and an artist. Everything about MGP captivated me; the artists, the backup singers, the songs, the choreography and the outfits" says Gjessing Linhave and adds: "I feel like the luckiest person in the world and am honored to get the chance to work with both Ronny and Kåre Magnus".

Ticket sales for the event opened on November 14th: 7,000 tickets went on sale. On Monday January 6 at 12.30 CET, NRK has revealed the first 9 of the 25 artists participating in this year's Melodi Grand Prix. At a press conference at NRK's headquarters in Oslo, the three MGP hosts first presented the five artists who have pre-qualified for the Grand Final. Then the four artists from Southern Norway who will compete in the first semi-final on January 11 were presented. The four songs from Southern Norway also became available for streaming on the same day. The next artists participating in the regional heats were revealed on Mondays of the show week.

NRK wants to focus more on online voting for the major entertainment programs and for the first time all votes for MGP will be cast online - for free. NRK User account is required to vote. Each viewer will have three votes. Once you have confirmed your decision, there is no way to change your opinion or vote on multiple candidates.

13/01: Представлены полуфиналисты Восточной Норвегии
06/01: Представлены первые 9 участников MGP

Национальный отбор

В очередной раз представитель Норвегии на конкурсе Евровидение будет выбран посредством национального формата NRK Melodi Grand Prix. На этот раз перед национальным финалом состоятся пять полуфиналов, по одному для каждого региона Норвегии (Север, Центр, Запад, Юг, Восток). Полуфиналы будут транслироваться из H3 Arena в Форнебю, регион Осло. В полуфинале выступят по четыре артиста из определенного региона. Они будут соревноваться по кубковой системе, и от телезрителей уже будет зависеть, кто из них выйдет в национальный финал в Тронхейме. Пять артистов прошли предварительный отбор и попадут напрямую в финал. Их выбрало жюри во главе со Стигом Карлсеном. Эти пять артистов впервые представят свои песни в полуфиналах - по одному в каждой. В конкурсе 2020 года не будет голосовать европейское жюри. Судьба MGP 2020 будет лежать в руках норвежских зрителей. Ранее планировалось привлечь 40 песен к участию в конкурсе, но Стиг Карлсен объясняет изменение формата на 25 песен тем, что организаторы проекта сосредоточены на качестве, а не на количестве.

Период приема заявок на участие в шоу продлился со 2 марта (дата MPG 2019) до 31 июля 2019 (продлен с первоначального срока 17 мая). Было получено около 600 заявок. Согласно правилам, по крайней мере один из авторов песни должен был быть гражданином Норвегии. Каждый продюсер или автор песен могли отправить до 3 композиций. "Содержание полученных заявок очень разнообразно, их качество весьма хорошо. В открытом отборе мы получили 600 заявок, и мы активно приглашали к участию - около 200 авторов песен, звукозаписывающих компаний и продюсеров напрямую. Пять из участников выйдут напрямую в финал, таким образом у нас будет 10 финалистов, которые будут бороться за то, чтобы представить Норвегию на Конкурсе Песни Евровидение в Роттердаме в мае 2020 года. У нас есть мейнстримовые песни, типичные фолк-фавориты, песни, которые предполагают безумие и развлечение, и некоторые более сложные композиции. Поскольку у нас есть целых 25 мест, мы смогли сделать красочную подборку", говорит Стиг Карлсен, который в этом году отдает всю власть телезрителям. "Melodi Grand Prix привлекает людей в течение 60 лет. Было много радости, преданности, высокого градуса напряжения и, конечно, также раздражений. Каждый раз, шоу смотрит миллион человек, и на этот раз зрители самостоятельно выберут победителя."

Изменения были сделаны в рамках празднования 60-летия MGP в 2020 году. Прошел 31 год с тех пор, как национальный финал проходил в другом городе, и это будет лишь третий раз за шесть десятилетий, когда финал проводится за пределами Осло (конкурсы 1985 и 1989 гг проводились в Ставангере в Западной Норвегии). "Мы рады принять национальный финал в Тронхейме в следующем году. Мы надеемся, что жители Тронхейма готовы устроить праздник для всех, рядом с центром нашей страны" говорит руководитель MGP Стиг Карлсен. Тронхейм - третий по величине город Норвегии и региональная столица округа Трёнделаг. Финал пройдет на арене Тронхейм Спектрум.

"Я могу пообещать вам отличные песни, замечательных артистов, пиротехнику, конфетти, замечательных ведущих и все, что вы ожидаете от MGP. И, конечно, мы будем рады приветствовать KEiiNO, чтобы они вновь выступили после того невероятного года, который у них был, говорит Карлсен. Мэр Тронхейма Рита Оттервик добавляет: "Для нас было важно, чтобы арена была задействована на культурных мероприятиях, а не только на спортивных. Согласно отзывам, полученным от посетителей концертов, на ней отличная акустика, что, я думаю, значает много для артистов".

5 декабря NRK объявил, что Ингрид Йессинг Линхаве, Ронни Бреде Осе и Коре Магнус Берг станут ведущими норвежского национального отбора. Коре Магнус известен фанатам MGP, он является его неизменным ведущим с 2015 года. Рони Бреде - один из новичков, но неизвестным норвежской публике его назвать нельзя. В течение 10 лет он вел самое популярное в Норвегии утреннее радио-шоу. В этом году оно в его нынешней форме должно уйти из эфира, и Осе стремится воспользоваться этой новой возможностью. "Я уверен, что это будет удивительная годовщина фестиваля, и я надеюсь показать зрителям, как я рад провести Melodi Grand Prix. Я люблю MGP и являюсь его поклонником с детства. Я помню, как был слишком молод, чтобы не ложиться спать и смотреть весь национальный финал, и мне приходится слушать конец шоу по радио в постели", - говорит Бреде Осе. Третья ведущая MGP 2020, Ингрид Йессинг Линхаве, является опытной телеведущей. У нее тоже есть свои детские воспоминания о крупнейшем телевизионном шоу в Норвегии. "У меня дома есть запись, на которой я в детстве представляю себя одновременно и ведущей и участницей MGP. Всё в нем очаровывало меня: артисты, бэк-вокалисты, песни, хореография и костюмы" говорит Йессинг Линхаве и добавляет: "Я чувствую себя самым счастливым человеком в мире, и для меня большая честь получить шанс поработать с Ронни и Коре Магнусом".

Продажа билетов на конкурс была открыта 14 ноября, всего было выпущено 7 000 билетов. В понедельник, 6 января, в 14:30 Москвы, NRK объявил первых 9 из 25 артистов, участвовующих в Гран-при в этом году. На пресс-конференции в штаб-квартире NRK в Осло три ведущих MGP сначала представили пять артистов, которые прошли предварительный отбор и попали напрямую в финал. Затем были представлены четыре артиста из Южной Норвегии, которые примут участие в первом полуфинале 11 января. Четыре песни из Южной Норвегии также стали доступны на стриминг платформах в тот же день. Следующие артисты, участвующие в региональных этапах, будут представлены публике по понедельникам в неделю шоу.

NRK хочет сосредоточиться на проведении онлайн-голосования в основных развлекательных программамах, и впервые все голоса на MGP будут поданы онлайн - бесплатно. Для голосования необходим аккаунт пользователя NRK. Каждый зритель будет иметь три голоса. Как только вы подтвердите свое решение, вы уже не сможете изменить свое мнение или проголосовать за нескольких кандидатов.
