MPG is quite similar to Swedish Melodifestivalen, it’s a tour contest along the Norwegian land. This year the heats or semis where held in Ørland, Larvik, Florø, and the Big Final will be held in Oslo. So, use google Earth and unite the dots.

This is line-up for the Final, which will be held in the Spektrum Arena.

If you are just like me, you probably didn’t watch all the performances or all the three semis, or maybe you didn’t know the MGP was running, so I’m going to put the videos, because NRK is not that jealous with their videos rights like her equal the Swedish, SVT.

01. Tooji - Stay (Tooji, Peter Boström, Figge Boström)

02. Reidun Sæther  High on love (Thomas G:Son, Tommy Berre, Ovi)

03. Lise Karlsnes - Sailors (Lise Karlsnes, Thomas Eriksen)
 (Sorry, I couldn't find any HD vid)

04. Plumbo – Ola Nordmann (Lars Erik Blokkhus, Glenn Hauger)

05. Malin Reitan - Crush (Beyond51 - Marcus Ulstad Nilsen, Andreas Sjo Engen, Kjetil Helgesen)

06. Nora Foss Al-Jabri – Somewhere beautiful (Christian Ingebrigtsen, Eivind Rølles)

07. Carburetors – Don't touch the flame (Stian Krogh, Christopher Lindahl, Per Gunnar Lund-Vang)

08. Petter Øien & Bobby Bare – Things change (Bobby Bare)

09. Yaseen & Julie Maria - Sammen (Sigve Bull, El Axel)

10. Tommy Fredvang – Make it better (Tommy Fredvang, Hanne Sørvaag, Tommy Berre)

After listening all the songs, the Norwegians will have a little more of time to vote for their favourites (they are allowed to vote from the first song ;)) and the next step would be to call the 4 most voted song which proceed to the Super Final, there, all of them will repeat again and a new voting period will start and the most voted will be the winner of this year.

Let’s play how this goes actually and tell me in a comment which from those 10 are your big 4 favourites... ?

Next Saturday in the morning, I’ll let you know which ones are mine, ok? So leave your comment and let me know yours.

Carpe Diem!

Eurovision 2017: My General Top42 before all the Lights Get On (1s Part)

It's Eurovision Time and there are tops on line from the whole world, well, sometimes I made mine, and this year, I've been working on that too. 
Here are the first delivery of what is my point of view according to the first listening and the song itself, let’s start this….

The singer has a great attitude and she can deliver a good version live of the song but the main problem is the buildup of the song itself, what is that?!

I think she has one of the best voices of this year, the message of the song is good but I cannot stand the old-fashioned of this song, maybe if it had had some modern instrumentation it would work much better at first listening.

Most of the fans are going to hate me, but I cannot find a gap in this song, I know it’s an up-tempo and he has a nice voice but it wasn’t enough to captivate me at first. Maybe in rehearsals or in his semifinal will make me change my mind, but it’s still not my cup of tea.

It’s too dram…

Eurovision 2017: My General top42 Before All the Lights Get On (3d Part)

I'm going to divide the last 14 places into two parts. Here are the places 14 to 8: 
Aleksandr Walmann has great vocals and JOWST one of the best mixes of the year. It will depend on what they have to performance it. I love the song and it was one of my favs from MGP this year.I’d like to see Aleksandr by himself in future too.

Verona is a nice retro-eighties-song. Despite I cannot really find chemistry between the singers the song itself it’s really good.The risk will be in his vocals, Laura sings pretty well, but Koit could be penalized with his, I’m afraid. 

Flawless voice and great live performance, I hope they can make a great show live using a good backdrop and nice graphics that helps to sell their song. Switzerland could be placing really well this year, a top10 for sure if they have all the ingredients ready.

For 5th year in a row, The Netherlands sends a song I like since I hear at first time. I love the harmonies of the t…

Eurovision 2017: My General Top42 before All the Lights Get On (2nd Part)

I wanted to post my top42 before the rehearsals, I could not make it but I will post it before the Shows are broadcasted.
I’m a Swedish lover, but I cannot build a bridge with Bengtsson’s song, I know he has a great live show but I cannot stand the song itself. For me is not a winner, nor a top10 for Sweden. Sorry Sweden for second year in a row I won’t be crossing my fingers for you, but I aware you’ll be in the final.

It’s a nice 90’s-early-00’s ballad song, but I did not feel in love with it at first listening, 7th time winner of Eurovision is still lost for my taste despite I love its entries back in 2010, 2014 and 2015 ;).

After the amazing Dami Im I was a bit disappointed about this song once I heard it at first time, I kinda like it but without being my ultimate favorite, I like it but I will not regret if they did not get through the final.

I like it since the first listening but being realistic, it has not a strong gap that makes you …
