After the three semi finals in Ørland, Florø and Skien, the second chance round or siste sjanse was held in the southern Norwegian town of Sarpsborg.
Here Sie Gubba with Alt du vil ha and The Lucky Bullets with Fire Below have won the right to perform in the Norwegian final after being given a second chance in their respective semi-finals.
They will now join the line up at the final of Melodi Grand Prix in Oslo on the 12th of February.
The semi final was split into four voting rounds with two songs in each. From here, one song was voted into a second round comprising of two voting rounds with two songs in each. From here the two songs that won qualified to the final.
If you thought that Melodi Grand Prix could not get any more exciting, then you are sorely mistaken. Between last week's semi final in Skien and tonight's second chance round in Sarpsborg, the trailer containing part of the Melodi Grand Prix stage was stolen from where it was being kept and driven all the way down to Skåne in Southern Sweden, where the culprit was arrested and the stage safely returned to NRK in Norway... Luckily in time for tonight's show!
