Arianrhod Engebø and Staysman will host next year’s Melodi Grand Prix.
Norwegian broadcaster NRK has revealed that Arian and Staysman will play host in the 2023 edition of Melodi Grand Prix. Arianrhod, also known as Arian, has several presenting credits to her name, having recently hosted this year’s VG-Lista Rådhusplassen. Eurovision fans may recognise Stian “Staysman” Thorbjørnsen, as he has participated in the Norwegian selection on two occasions – once in 2015 with “En godt stekt pizza”, and most recently in 2021 as part of Landeveiens helter.
Melodi Grand Prix is expected to follow a similar format to previous years, with the contest consisting of several semi-finals and a final. All of the results are expected to be decided by public voting alone. Exact details on the format will be released in due course.
Subwoolfer represented Norway at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 with “Give That Wolf a Banana”. They finished 10th in the Grand Final scoring 182 points.
