Flag of Norway Norway debuted in the first edition of North Vision Song Contest and has participated in every edition since then. The Norwegian broadcaster, Norsk Rikskringkasting (NRK), has been the organizer of the Norwegian entry since the country's debut. The broadcaster hosts a national selection (called "Den Norsken Sangen" which means "The Norwegian Song" in English) since the fourth edition to decide the NVSC entry.

Norway in the North Vision Song Contest

Norway debuted in the first edition of the North Vision Song Contest in Budapest, after NRK showed interest on participating in the contest very early.

Norway is one of the most successful countries in the contest, having sixteen Top 10 placings including three victories. It was the first country in the history of the contest that achieved to win for a second time (and the only country that did it in a row). Norway's first victory came in the eighth edition with the song "Younger" by Julie Bergan. The second victory came in the next edition in Oslo with the song "Feathers" by Alida. However, they were always participating in the semi-finals until North Vision Song Contest 9, when Norway was a Big 5 Member, due to the first place in the previous edition.The first non-qualification came in the fifth edition, when Maria Mena got the 13th place in the semi-final. Since then, they didn't miss a final until the twenty-third edition. The third victory came in the anniversary thirtieth edition with the band Gåte and the song "Bannlyst" marking the first winner in the Norwegian language.

Norway has so far hosted twice the North Vision Song Contest; the ninth edition of the contest in Oslo and the tenth edition in Bergen. Also, the North Vision in Concert 6 was held in Norway. The contest has been broadcasted since the first edition by NRK. The spokespersons have been different since the first edition with the list including Alexander Rybak, Ylvis and Tone Damli.

Contestants & Results

Other contests

OGAN Second Chance Contest

The contest takes place during the actual contest, usually during the final of the respective edition. It is not an televised event, but only through YouTube. In order for an OGAN fan club to participate in the contest, it is required to have a public national selection held for the respective edition. Every OGAN club can only have one entry. The song can be only selected internally and cannot be changed after it was selected. The selected song must be from the final of the selection unless the selection has not the format of the semi-finals and final.

Norway has won four times; in OGAN Second Chance Contest 8 with the song "Always On My Mind" by Adelén, in OGAN Second Chance Contest 11 with the song "Compass" by Two Steps from Hell and Merethe Soltvedt in the vocals, in OGAN Second Chance Contest 25 with "Remember Me" by Ina Wroldsen and in OGAN Second Chance Contest 30 with "Hear It Out Loud" by Emelie Hollow. OGAN Norway hosted the contest five times; four of them because they won the last edition but they got to host also OGAN Second Chance Contest 11, as the United Kingdom declined to host it and Norway was second the previous edition.
