Norway – Whilst some people are still getting over this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, Norway is looking forward to next year and has already opened its submission period for its national selection process Melodi Grand Prix 2017.
National broadcaster NRK will stick with its MGP formula and 10 lucky artists will get the chance to compete in the MGP final to win a place in Ukraine. NRK are inviting submissions from now until September 11th 2016 from both foreign and local composers.
NRK will also look to headhunt artists they may want to perform, and can ultimately choose the artist to sing any song that is submitted.
The full rules and how to apply can be found here.
Norway has qualified for the final 7 times in the last 10 years, winning in 2009 with Alexander Rybak. Norway has a total of 11 top five and 22 top ten results in the contest.
