  1. How degenerative is to fish votes using political slogan of protests and using political videos on background. Hope even jurors won’t vote for them tomorrow regardless to their vocals which are the best.

  2. Audience in Lulea:

    1. Mohombi (241 votes)
    2. Anis Don Demina (232 votes)
    3. Drängarna (119 votes)
    4. Mariette (108 votes)
    5. Faith Kakembo (50 votes)
    6. Amanda Aasa (32 votes)
    7. Albin Johnsén (18 votes)

    Robin received the same reaction as Faith Kakembo, even less votes, so I hope Faith DTF!!

  3. And thanks to Avat’s post, i see there’re snippet of all Depi Evratesil rehearsalson the official channel. Athena sounds good:

  4. Live, slightly chilled-out arrangement of “Majakad” for Valentines day! Very good!

  5. The official video for Blanche’s new single is lovely too:

    • Yay! The comeback of 21st century Silje Vige – both suffering from terrible stage fright and finishing top 5 in their respective years thanks to puppy license and generally good songs.
      “Empire” is ok as an appetizer for her upcoming album of the same title. I’d wish to see her try for something else though, like a French song f.e. .

  6. Norsk MGP 2020 tomorrow will be in Arena in Oslo (I think one where ESC was in 2010), much bigger venue than that for semis..

    If Mariette goes DTF tomorrow, it will be the first act ever to do so for the 4th time at MF..

  7. The most views (only performance) :
    1. Laura
    2. Synne
    3. Rasmus
    4. Jaguup
