NRK has announced ‘Adresse Europa’ which will look back at the most memorable songs and moments from the Eurovision Song Contest.
The Norwegian national broadcaster has announced Adresse Europa, which replaces its traditional Eurovision Song Contest preview show. Adresse Europa will feature a jury reviewing the most memorable moments from the Eurovision Song Contest and scoring to find the most memorable Eurovision moment.
The show will be hosted by Marte Stokstad and will be joined by a jury formed of:
- Ingeborg Heldal – Presenter
- Per Sundnes – Former Head of Delegation for Norway
- Bendik – Singer
- Jan Thomas – Stylist
Four Eurovision fans will also be sharing their views on all of the clips during the show and also scoring. The show will begin on April 18 at 21:20 and will be broadcast over the next four Saturday’s.
NRK Entertainment commented:
Normally at this time of year, NRK offers “address programs”, where we look at the country that will hold the Eurovision Song Contest. This year the program was called “Address Rotterdam”, after Duncan Laurence took home the victory for the Netherlands in last year’s final.
Due to the corona crisis, this year’s Eurovision was canceled. Still, NRK wants to offer Saturday entertainment with Eurovision as a theme, at a time when we all need some change from news and seriousness.
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.
