TIX has released “Fallen Angel” the song he hopes he will take to the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 for Norway.
TIX who is among the favourites to win this evenings Melodi Grand Prix final has released the English version of “Ut av mørket”. TIX originally performed the song in Norwegian when it was presented in the first Semi-Final, but confirmed last weekend that he will perform the song this evening in English.
Following his performance in the first semi-final of Melodi Grand Prix, singer TIX revealed that his song “Ut av mørket” would be translated into English for Eurovision should he win.
TIX explained that the song was originally written in English for an international artist before deciding that he would perform the song himself. At the time it was unsure if the song would be performed in English in the final of Melodi Grand Prix.
The final of Melodi Grand Prix 2021 will kick off at 19:50 CET this evening. The show will be held in three rounds. In round one all of the twelve acts will be performing.
