NRK, the Norwegian public broadcaster is known to put ona good show and the 2014 edition of the Melodi Grand Prix was no exception. Four finalists qualified for the super final, where they each had the opportunity to perform for a second time. Carl Espen emerged victorious with his song Silent Storm written by his cousin Josefin Winther. The voting was incredibly tense with the public being responsible for the final outcome, and doing their duty, noting that over 100,000 votes were cast.

Carl Espen will be representing Norway in Copenhagen, after getting support from the Western side of the country. Silent Storm is an emotional ballad with an effective piano melody throughout. This is a nice song, less if definitely more and given how thankful Carl appears to have won MGP, I do genuinely wish him well. As the Eurovision 2014 line-up nears completion, Norway has entered another good entry. Let’s see if they can do as well as they did in Malmö. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all the latest news.

Margaret Berger, and her entry I Feed You My Love finished in fourth place at this years' edition of the Eurovision Song Contest seeing the Scandinavian country of Norway return to an elite position. The project manager of the Melodi Grand Prix, Vivi Stenberg spoke to tabloid, VG Lista with regards to the upcoming edition of the Melodi Grand Prix which will still have the traditional three semi-finals with the difference that they will be held in the same city. NRK, the broadcaster in Norway is moving away from the traditional selection process used by Sweden and will hope to stand on their own as they create this brand new format.

Usually, twenty-one (21) acts used to compete within the Melodi Grand Prix but it seems that the new system will incorporate fifteen (15) acts and thus will see to five (5) weekly performances with three (3) acts getting through to the final, most likely set to take place within the Oslo Spektrum. Vivi Stenberg has spoken in favour of the reduction of entries 'We now have to think, even moreso than before, that every song in the running has winning potential'. Some of the competing entries will be available online in order to get the fans interested in the selection procedure. The most popular songs will make it through to the Melodi Grand Prix but has not been decided whether they would be in the semi-final or the final. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news about Norway and their participation within the Eurovision Song Contest 2014.
