Tonight we saw the second semi final of Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix, where Farida was crowned the winner, and given a spot in the final with her song “Dangerous”.
The show was broadcast live from H3 Arena in Fornebu, without an audience. Kåre Magnus Bergh and Mikkel Niva served as hosts for tonights show. Annika Momrak was absent from hosting duties due to testing positive for COVID.
Four acts participated in tonight’s show, with each act singing in one of two duels. The winner of each duel advanced to the Golden Duel, with the winner of that duel earning a place in the Melodi Grand Prix grand final.
- Lilly Löwe – “Bad Baby”
- Steffen Jakobsen – “With Me Tonight” – WINNER
- Farida – “Dangerous” – WINNER
- Daniel Lukas – “Kvelertak” (Suffocating)
Steffan Jakobsen and Farida were the winners of their respective duels and went head to head in the Golden Duel. The results of the semi final were decided entirely by online voting on the official NKR/MGP app.
Alongside the four semi finalists, we also saw the second pre-qualified finalists performing on stage. This week it was the turn of A1 member, Christian Ingebrigtsen, who performed his song “Wonder of The World”.
The third semi final of Melodi Grand Prix 2022 will be taking place on January 29th, where a further four acts will battle it out for a place in the final. There will be a total of four semi finals, and one second chance round (split in to two parts) before the grand final on February 19th.
