Norway's Public Broadcaster (NRK) is on the hunt for someone to become the successor to Alessandra (Norway 2023). This year, the Norwegian Melodi Grand Prix will consist of three heats and a final, with all artists having to compete in a heat to secure a spot in the final as there are no pre-qualified acts this year.

Norway in Eurovision

Since their debut in 1960, Norway has participated in Eurovision 61 times. They have won the competition three times:

Norway 2022: Subwoolfer - "Give That Wolf a Banana"

In 2009, Alexander Rybak's Fairytale received the most points ever in the old voting system: 387 points – getting 12 points from 16 countries. However, Norway holds another Eurovision record; the country that has finished last the most times – 10 last place finishes!

Since the introduction of the Semi-finals in 2004, Norway has been very successful; qualifying for the Grand Final 16 out of 19 times.
