Eurovision fans will be spoilt for choice tonight with seven Eurovision selection shows to chose from. Among these shows are three of the Scandinavian nations with Finland and Norway both hosting the final of their national selections and Sweden who will deliver the fourth of their Melodifestivalen shows. All of these shows will kick off at 20:00 CET tonight, but before they do, we reveal who has topped each of the nation’s polls.
Despite three wins at Eurovision (Bobbysocks 1985, Garden 1995 and Alexander Rybak in 2009), Norway have one of the worst records in Eurovision. They have come in last place a whopping 11 times and on four of those occasions they were awarded the dreaded nul points. Recently though Norway have sent some solid songs and have racked up a three consecutive top ten finishes in the past three years including Margaret Berger, Carl Espen and last year’s duet between Morland and Debrah Scarlett. They return to the Contest for a 55th time in 2016, so let’s find out what they have in store.
