The Melodi Grand Prix has always proven to be an astounding show and this year proved to be no less with many people speaking extremely positive about all of the entries presented the evening with the acts all being somewhat excited to perform. The broadcaster should definitely be commended on organizing a show of the highest possible level this evening. The hosts were on the money with a script which was not dragging, actually quite lively even for a foreigner and in the end, the voting was excruciatingly excited to be honest especially due to the fact that the tele-voting and the juries did not agree, something which has become quite normal in Malta.

The interesting revelations were made when the top four were announced with many of the people being somewhat shocked by the fact that the fan favourite known as 'High On Love' by Reidun was left out following a public vote. Nevertheless, the choices were made and those who made it into the top four were actually those which received the largest applause during the recap. Therefore, that was quite a good indication to the way that the results have swayed. In the end it was Tooji who won the tele-voting with the song 'Stay' and considering the different regions in Norway, it always has a higher voting percentage but winning the Jury was Nora Foss Al-Jabri with the ballad 'Somewhere Beautiful'. The other two places were taken by Plumbo and the song 'Ola Nordmann' as well as Petter Øien & Bobby Bare with 'Things Change'. The chosen entry has been very much compared to Eric Saade and his song 'Popular' although many commend it for being stronger. This is the first direct competition for Kurt Calleja and 'This Is The Night' as it will compete in the second semi-final along with Malta.
