NRK has been broadcasting a Eurovision preview show since 1998 and used to be part of a pan-Nordic preview show that was produced by SVT between 2004 and 2007.
Norway is among just a handful of countries left still broadcasting preview shows for the contest. Confirmed as producing shows this year are Finland’s Swedish language channel and NDR through Eurovision.de.
Norway debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1960, and have won the contest three times – in 1985, 1995 and 2009. The country has the dubious record of finishing last the most times, eleven in total, and have received nul points four times. Norway last won the contest in 2009 when Alexander Rybak broke all records with his song “Fairytale”. He scored 387 points in the final, receiving 16 sets of 12 points and scoring points from every country.
