Audience won’t be there for the first five shows (semi-finals and second chance round) but as Stig Karlsen said in an interview for ESC Norge the Norwegian government confirmed that 200 places for audience will be available for the final of the show with a chance to increase the number of the allowed audience in the larger arenas in the upcoming weeks. NRK will be having a meeting about the final soon so there is hope for a nice show from H3 Arena. Next week, it can be opened to more people in larger arenas. MGP boss Stig Karlsen tells us in escNorge tonight that NRK will have a meeting about the final right after the weekend, or during the weekend. So, there is hope for, at least a small, folk party in H3 Arena during the final.
