On 9th February 2014, the Running Order Draw took place in Liverpool and it was decided that Norway would perform last in the first semi-final of North Vision Song Contest 7. The team arrived in Liverpool on 18th February 2014 and Maria made her first rehearseal on Friday 21st February in Echo Arena.

On 24th February, Maria Mena performed last in the audience of Liverpool. On 3rd March, the results of the semifinal were announced. Maria Mena was announced as the first qualifier in the final of North Vision Song Contest 7, making it with her second participation in the contest finishing fourth with 85 points as it was announced after the show. On 4th March, Maria selected to perform as thirteenth in the Finalists' Running Order Draw. Maria said some hours before the final of 28th March: "I don't have fear or I'm not nervous, it isn't the first concert of my career. Also, it is my second participation in the contest, that means that I have already performed 2 times in the Northvision stage and now I have more experience. I will give my best for my country. Our goal was to qualify and now my goal is to make the better result of Norway so far. That means a fifth place but it's very very difficult. I will try and we'll see." When she was asked by reporters who is her biggest opponent she answered: "Me and myself. If I feel that I've done the best that I could then I am a winner for me."

In the night of the results, Norway scored 111 points (12 points from Moldova and Azerbaijan) in the night of the results and finished in the 12th place returning in the top 15. Maria Mena was more than satisfied with her second (and more successful) participation in the North Vision Song Contest.
