Norway you have one job to do. You better do it right. I think norway 2022 is pretty obvious. I thought nobody would take away blas canto from my number 1 list and I'm still waiting for his song, but i believe these guys are my number one.

Well Heat 2 is clearly being won by Raylee, what a mis-match of songs there. I don't believe it's the strongest song of its modern 80s renaissance genre even, but out of what's on offer here it's the only possible finalist.

Daniel will get some votes two, but his song just never quite reaches a level where I could see it overtaking Raylee which will be the most instant and memorable (unless staging and live performance is a car crash).

But still, it's all moot since nothing beats Monument still. Let's see what the next heat and the PQs bring ;)

Just not my kinda snack, and it would be completely annihilated in the semis at ESC.

Lol heat 2 is garbage. Considered doing reviews, but nah. Ketil is amusingly bad, Daniel is actually bad and Maria is like the antique rocking chair you place in your dressing room because it looks pretty in the background when you're having guest over for tea.

As someone who HATES Wild, I didn't really expect anything remotely good from Agingpoorlee, but looks like little miss Laurell has laid off coping the copies of an entry whose most notable feature is that it almost won Eurovision and instead went great lengths to try and emulate popular current musical trends.

I approve, because 80s Synthpop (esp. New Wave) is without hyperbole my favourite musical genre. I like and enjoy Hero.
I am also not too impressed because I listen to a LOT of synthpop and I've heard... much better? Both in quantity and quality. Especially now when you can't turn on your radio without hearing an 80s inspired synth/new wave/nudisco song.

Still, while it's not quite a Slaylee, it is certainly not a Failee, so I'll happily settle for MoreThanAdequatelee in this lopsided heat. Eat those musical mediocrities for breakfast, plz...x

No contest really for my favorite in this semifinal. I find Nordlyset so warm and charming. :love:

Raylee is an acceptable choice as well although it doesn't do that much for me. I think it's her weakest song so far. The other two are a big no. The two worst songs at NMGP so far.

:no: NMGP 2021 Semifinal 2 Rankings (Pre-show)
1. Maria Solheim - Nordlyset
2. Raylee - Hero
3. Ketil Stokkan - My Life is OK
4. Daniel Owen - Psycho

This was shade and yet somehow I read it as a beautiful compliment. It's totally something I'd do.

I pretty much agree with you on Hero. It's far from the best slice of synthpop we've heard but it's strangely serviceable, and of course isn't Wild so should be celebrated for at least that.

'Serviceable' is usually the best you can hope for in Eurovision, so it's a good thing Hero has that quality. Pity the other three don't. :-/

I,m from Norway and i hope we send Tix. Keiino is good, but not so strong like Spirit in the sky.

Tix will also sing his song in english if we win. I also think a win for Tix will do it easier for other big singer to take place in Eurovision/MGP. He is one of Norway biggest artist/Singers and have many big hit.

Semifinal 2: Don,t like any of the song much. But Raylee is a huge favorit to win on saturday.

It will be 620k (TIX) vs. 220k (KEIINO) streams on Spotify by Saturday. That's if you take 6 full days for both, not counting his first day.

Raylee didn't win MGP last year. Besides NRK publicly announced they gave her an automatic spot in the final if she wanted to compete, and Ulrikke publicly declined said invitation.
That is why I asked, i didn't read that info.. ;)

@Mimmon

Is that one more direct finalist? I quite like it in studio version..it sounds really Norwegian to me..
Music towards the end, especially violins are really charming..
