Melodi Grand Prix 2020
This year, the Norwegian national final, Melodi Grand Prix, celebrates its 60th anniversary. With that in mind, the producers of the show decided to organise a bigger event, more similar to Melodifestivalen – Swedish national final.
This year, the show will consist of six shows and its show will be broadcasted from a different region. In every semifinal, six songs will duel, with the winner of each qualifying for the final. In addition to that five songs – one from each semi – five songs will be pre-qualified. A jury will select these five entries. The names of the pre-qualified artists will be revealed on the 3rd of January.
Every Monday, before each semifinal, NRK will be revealing the names of that specific week’s contestants. The competing songs will be released online every Friday. One of the pre-qualified songs will be presented in every semifinal.
