Over three weeks of Semi-Finals in Ørland, Larvik and Florø, nine acts have qualified to the final of Melodi Grand Prix, Norway's popular national selection format.

However there are ten spaces in the final with the final place chosen by a professional jury amongst the acts who failed to make the cut during the Semi-Finals. The lucky act to be chosen to perform once again is Lise Karlsnes with her song Sailors. She took part in the third Semi-Final on Saturday night where she was beaten by Petter Øien & Bobby Bare, Tooji and Julie Marie & Yaseen.

Now that the line-up is complete we can give you the full list of participants in Saturday night's Grand Final in the order of appearance:

  1. Tooji - Stay

  3. Lise Karlsnes - Sailors 
  4. Plumbo – Ola Nordmann 
  5. Malin Reitan - Crush

  7. Carburetors – Don’t Touch The Flame 
  8. Petter Øien & Bobby Bare – Things Change
