Norsk MGP 2010: no news, only rumours

Lots of lovely Norwegian rumours flying around about who will be competing in the 2010 Norsk Melodi Grand Prix - everyone from Maria Haukaas Storeng, Venke Knutson and Mira Craig (this time as a singer rather than a songwriter) to Lene Alexandra, A1 (!) and Alexander Stenerud. It’s even been suggested that songwriter Rolf Løvland, who was responsible for Norway’s previous ESC winners by Bobbysocks and Secret Garden, will have a song in it next year.

VG reports that NRK won’t be confirming the names of any participants until December. In the meantime you can check out all the rumours and gossip at

It's gotta be A1 surely? I love Venke,Alexander and Maria,but A1 at Eurovision would be fab.Loving their new song that they did on Norwegian X Factor :)

I'd love to see A1 representing Norway too - I didn't know they had a new song out so I'll need to have a listen to it tonight.

Didn't know there was a Norwegian X Factor either so I'll have to check that out too. Guess I've been too busy following Swedish Idol to concentrate on anything else. Yesterday I was showing my mum some clips from past and present Swedish Idol contests and she said (yet again) - "foreign singers are much better than ours!" How very true.
