Starting from today the 15th of May songs for Melodi Grand Prix 2021 can be submitted. The deadline to submit the song is 16th of August 2020.
Melodi Grand Prix 2021 will be held in January and February next year, with five semi-finals and one grand final. Producer and music manager Stig Karlsen says that they are constantly working in strengthening the search for the best songs and that was the reason why last year they introduced some new rules that will mainly be continued this year. They are going for quality ahead of quantity. In addition to the open submission, there will be a targeted research and direct dialogue with the music industry.
