Ahead the Melodi Grand Prix 2021 final on this Saturday, we had the chance to talk with Blåsemafian, who qualified to the final from the first semifinal. The group talk about their song “Let Loose”, how they found Hazel through Snapchat and their plan to make the biggest Zoom call ever.

Fans were amazed to see that Blåsemafian played their instruments live on their performance at Melodi Grand Prix. The group say that NRK was very open with this idea and if they win, they want to play live at the Eurovision Song Contest as well.
We hope to win the Norwegian final to show that it’s possible in the Eurovision Song Contest to play live all the instruments. Our main goal is to inspire young musicians to push their boundaries.Jørgen Karlsen of Blåsemafian
The group also said that they have plans to make Norway’s – or even Europe’s – biggest Zoom call aiming to get thousands, even tens of thousands people joining them. The said Zoom call is set to take place tomorrow, Wednesday, February 17th from 18:00CET. The call will be broadcasted and during that the music video for “Let Loose” will also get its premiere. You can watch the broadcast here.
Blåsemafian invites all people to sing, dance or play with them. More information (in Norwegian) can be found here.
