Listen to the songs in competition at the Melodi Grand Prix 2022
The Norwegian public broadcaster (NRK) is ready to start looking for the successor to TIX (Norway 2021) as the very first round of the Norwegian Grand Prix Melodi 2022 is due to take place this Saturday, January 15.
Prior to show time, and unlike previous years, the broadcaster hosted a special hosted by Mikkel Niva, Annika Momrak and Kåre Magnus Bergh to showcase all of the songs entered in the contest so that now everyone can listen to them before big nights.
Five of the 21 songs are pre-qualified for the final, while the remaining 16 must go through one of the four rounds.
