Norway in the Eurovision Song Contest

The Scandinavian nation debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1960 with Nora Brockstedt and her song ‘Voi Voi’, placing fourth. Since their debut, Norway has managed to win three times (1985, 1995 & 2009).

In 2020, Ulrikke won Melodi Grand Prix with her song ‘Attention’. Norway was set to perform in the First Semi-Final of this year’s contest before it was cancelled. Ulrikke was offered direct qualification for the 2021 MGP final, but declined.
