XTRA DECIDES sees the team here at ESCXTRA score the Eurovision national final songs, reviewing our winner. Follow us from here through to March 2024 as we make our choices for Eurovision 2024.

Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix kicks off tonight with the first of three semi-finals. As before we will be picking our favourites from each of the semi-finals before eventually choosing our favourite to win the contest.

Margaret Berger with “Oblivion” is our favourite from this semi-final. Based on our scores, Ingrid Jasmin with “Eya” and Mathilde SPZ feat. Chris Archer & Slam Dunk with “Woman Show” would also be our choices to qualify for the grand final.

1Margaret Berger – “Oblivion”803
2Ingrid Jasmin – “Eya”661
3Mathilde SPZ feat. Chris Archer & Slam Dunk – “Woman Show”621
4Gothminister – “We Come Alive”603
5Myra – “Heart on Fire”400
6Fredrik Halland – “Stranded”280


How has it been over 10yrs since Margaret Berger was in Eurovision?! Those distinctive vocals don’t miss a beat in ‘Oblivion’. A welcome return to form, with modern electronic production that punctuates the chorus. Definitely a contender once again if all the out there entries vote split each other.


“The return of Margaret Berger was highly anticipated and she didn’t disappoint. I much prefer Oblivion over I Feed You My Love – the tune is accessible, sticks to you and should be a surefire qualifier in this first, strong, MGP heat. This could very well end up being the entry for Norway, but I’m curious to see how they’ll stage this.”
