Agnete – Icebreaker

A typical pop/power ballad here. Most interesting fact is that I have failed to pick up on any song being in Norwegian this year… Oh dear.

Act #9…

The Hungry Hearts ft. Lisa Dillan – Laika
So Jan Fredrik is all excited about this and then this group comes out. Lisa is a 46 year old jazz singer, The Hungry Hearts like their electronic music. This’ll be interesting.

Laila Samuels – Afterglow
She’s known to compose for other artists, but now she’s entering herself. And she’s quite good with a slower pop effort for what we heard, but it could easily be that the chorus builds into uptempo there.

Act #7:

Pegasus – Anyway
This is one I’ll like. A couple of guys bringing a slower country/pop effort. I’m a fan!

Makeda – Stand Up
A young girl with a swinging soul effort, it seems! She enjoys Little Mix and we can hear that.

The fifth:

Freddy Kalas – Happy Rush
Well then, this man is all dressed up in his suit, but he’s singing a song like David Lindgren could in Sweden. As if David put on a few pounds.

The fourth act:

Elouiz – History
Now this is a surprise. Elouiz is Swedish, but is entering in Norway. Check out her song ’10’, it’s excellent, as is her MGP song judging on the first ten seconds.

Act #3:

Stage Dolls – Into The Fire
A three men rock/pop group here. They’re a bit older, but we know that the elderly always get a shot in Norway!

The second act:

Stine Hole Ulla – Traces
A pure Disney ballad from this young girl here. She’s promising wind machines!

The first act for MGP 2016:

Suite 16 – Anna Lee

We’re having a boyband attempt here. With just ten seconds of their songs, not a lot else to say, but it’s an uptempo pop song (no surprises).
