A total of 10 acts performed in the Norwegian national final this year, with some very familiar names. The line-up featured Stella Mwangi from Eurovision 2011, Aleksander Walmann from Eurovision 2017 and probably the most notable, Eurovision 2009 winner Alexander Rybak. Here’s the full line-up:
Stella & Alexandra – You Got Me
Aleksander Walmann – Talk to the Hand
Ida Maria – Scandilove
Nicoline – Light Me Up
Tom Hugo – I Like I Like I Like
Charla K – Stop the Music
Alejandro Fuentes – Tengo Otra
Vidar Villa – Moren din
Rebecca – Who We Are
Alexander Rybak – That’s How You Write a Song
The voting consisted of three rounds, where the 10 acts were voted on by an international jury as well as the viewers at home. The top four songs as voted by the jury and public continued through to the second round, where the public got to choose the top 2 acts for the Gold Final round 2.
The first round of voting revealed the four highest point scorers, who were Stella & Alexandra, Aleksander Walmann, Rebecca and Alexander Rybak. Going into the third and final round was Rebecca and Alexander Rybak, and it was announced that former Eurovision winner Alexander Rybak would be returning to Eurovision with the song That’s How You Write a Song.
