Ulrikke has released the video for a Norwegian version of her Melodi Grand Prix 2023 entry ‘Honestly’. The singer qualified from the first semi-final of the contest and will compete in the grand final to represent Norway at the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool.
Ulrikke had won the 2020 edition of Melodi Grand Prix and was due to represent Norway at the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam. As we now know, the contest was unprecedently cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. She is hoping to earn a second chance at performing on the Eurovision stage with ‘Honestly’. The music video for the Norwegian version ‘Til evig tid’ premiered tonight and the song will be available to stream from midnight on 27th January.
THIS I’ve been looking forward to sharing with you! 😭❤️ Trygve Skaug has translated “Honestly” into Norwegian. We have travelled around Norway to shoot a music video for that version, and on the way we have met so many wonderful people ❤️ Am really excited to hear what you think of “Til Eig Tid”!
