NRK has revealed all 21 artists and songs that will compete for the right to represent Norway at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin!
The reveal was hosted by Kåre Magnus Bergh, a presenter we’ve seen host Melodi Grand Prix seven times before, alongside two new presenters – Annika Momrak, the winner of MGPjr in 2013 and the youngest MGP host ever at only 22 years of age, and Mikkel Niva, an experienced presenter that has hosted numerous Norwegian programs including MGPjr. The trio will also host all six live shows.
