Last Saturday the final of Melodi Grand Prix 2021 took place, TIX was crowned the winner and he will represent Norway at Eurovision Song Contest 2021. This edition of the Norwegian national selection managed to beat Melodi Grand Prix 2017 with the viewing rates more about that you can find HERE. On Monday less than two days after he won Melodi Grand Prix 2021 TIX was back on stage of H3 Arena to record his performance for Eurovision Song Contest 2021. Stig Karlsen hopes that it will be possible to travel to Rotterdam for the show but they prepared live on tape performance just in case contest will be organised in some other scenario which excludes live performance. More information about possible scenarios you can find HERE.
TIX and the production team were on fire during today’s recording, and were cheered on by a very satisfied committee from the EBU and the Dutch broadcaster. It feels good that we now have a back-up we are very happy with. We reduced to four dancers for the best possible symmetry.

In addition to that MGP manager Stig Karlsen revealed that the live on tape performance includes more pyro effects and expressed the hopes that the show will take place in Rotterdam this year. The rules of the EBU allow six performers on stage so NRK made the decision to reduce the number of dancers from 6 to 4. Norway was the first out of 41 participating countries to deliver their live on tape recording and in case TIX has the live performance of his entry “Fallen Angel” in Rotterdam it doesn’t need to resemble the backup tape performance he recorded on Monday so NRK will be able to change it in that case.
