NRK has promised an excellent night of entertainment on Saturday when Norway's entry for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest is chosen. As per usual a combined televote and jury vote will decide the final outcome, with four acts qualifying to a so-called Gold Final before the final voting takes place and the winner announced.
Eurovision.tv will have a team in Oslo bringing you exclusive coverage of this, one of Europe's most popular national selections.
Norway will take part in the second half of the second Semi-Final of the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö on the 16th of May.
