As Norway won Europe's Favourite TV Show last year, Didrik has earned an automatic place in the Final. He was drawn in position number three, but unlike others, he doesn't see this as a negative thing at all, in fact is quite pleased with it. Didrik also explains how winning the Norwegian national selection hs changed his life. You can watch our interview below.
It remains to be seen whether the new system of televoting from the start of the show will prove to be an advantage or a disadvantage for an artist drawn early in the running order, but it must be considered that one of the most comprehensive and resounding victories of all time in Eurovision Song Contest history came from third position in the draw, albeit with juries only voting and that was in 1994 when Paul Harrington & Charlie McGettigan won the contest with Rock & Roll Kids.
