Norway’s Head of Delegation ‘Stig Karlsen’ has spoken with Norwegian Eurovision website ‘ESCNorge’ and has confirmed that Melodi Grand Prix 2020 will begin on January 11, 2020, with Norway selecting their act for The Netherlands on February 15, 2020.

We have previously reported that changes are being made to the Melodi Grand Prix format, to coincide with its 60th Anniversary. We have initially reported that 40 songs were due to compete in next year’s Melodi Grand Prix. However, it has now been confirmed that this has been reduced to 20.

Part of the changes includes the return of the Semi-Finals, which we last saw in 2014. The Semi-Finals (which will take place in Oslo) will focus on the five regions of Norway:

Northern Norway – 4 Songs to Compete
Central Norway – 4 Songs to Compete
Western Norway – 4 Songs to Compete
Eastern Norway – 4 Songs to Compete
Southern Norway – 4 Songs to Compete

During the Semi-Finals phase of the competition, the four competing acts will face each other in duels, until a winner has been determined.

For the Grand Final, ten songs will compete for the chance to represent Noway at the Eurovision Song Contest. Five of the competing entries would be from the region format as explained above, whilst the other five have been pre-selected and will be revealed as the Semi-Finals take place.

Really weird format, I wish they could at least host the semis in the regions. But at least we will have semis again!

The final will take place in Trondheim! In the brand new Trondheim Spektrum!

The semi finals will take place in H3 Arena in Fornebu (an old hangar in what used to be Oslo's main airport).
