We now know the result of the four semi finals, and boy was I wrong in my predictions. I made the huge mistake of thinking that the viewer’s would vote exactly like they did last year. Then they voted all the big stars through to the final. But this year something has happened. The big question is what?!
Alexander Rybak won a very clear ticket to Moscow when his song Fairytale recieved 7 times as many votes as the second place in tonight's Melodi Grand Prix final. His personal fairytale has begun - now time will tell if it will have a happy ending in Moscow.
30 seconds clips from all the 21 participating songs for the 2009 Norwegian Melodi Grand Prix has been made available by the broadcaster and the full album can be pre ordered. For those who can’t wait for full versions they can be purchased as downloads.
