Norway: Listen to snippets of the songs

The Norwegian broadcaster, NRK, released all the acts for MGP 2014 this morning on their official website. Over 600 entries was received for MGP 2014, and now they are down to the final 15.
There will be three semifinals on 7th, 8th and 9th of March where three participants will go on to the big final on March 15th. On February 19th, you will be able to listen to the songs in it’s full length.

The jury that has chosen the songs, can tell that they have chosen these entries first and foremost because of their quality, and not that much because of the show-factor.

Out of these 15 entries, we can only see one name that has entered the MGP stage before, and this is Elisabeth Carew which competed in 2010.

You can listen to all the entries here.
