Loreen, Eurovision winner in 2012, makes a comeback to the competition Andres Putting (EBU)

On Saturday the Grand Final of Melodi Grand Prix 2013 will take place at the Oslo Spektrum arena where ten acts will compete to become Norway's representative at the Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö.

Owing to two rounds of voting, there will be an opportunity for two interval acts to perform on Saturday's show in Oslo and it has been announced that Loreen, who won the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest with an astonishing 372 points will be one of them.

She will be performing her single My Heart Is Refusing Me from her album Heal in what promises to be a spectacular show incorporating a stunning dance routine and Loreen in tip top form.

"Loreen is the queen of the Eurovision Song Contest and is a very busy lady, so we are very pleased and proud that she is prioritising this. She was my first wish for an interval act", says the director of Melodi Grand Prix, Tore Sergei Myklebust.
