Hege Karin Rødfjell (55) from Åga went to the Melodi Grand Prix final in Trondheim on Saturday 3 February with the famous band Gothminister.
The band was one of the three to receive the most votes in the live final on Saturday night.
Ingrid Yasmin and Margaret Berger also received the most audience votes.
The road to the final was difficult for Gothminister.
-I have had sinusitis for three days, and I feel bad. After I pulled myself together and ate some chili, I'm very happy now that rock and metal have made it to the final, says Björn Alexander Brems, Gothminister's alter ego. NRC.
The song the band sang was “We Come Alive”.
When asked what it means for Heggie Karen Rodfel to be participating in Grand Prix Melody, she said the following in the issue, which Rana Blad wrote about earlier this week:
– First of all, it's fun! It's something I've dreamed of for many years, so being able to participate in it means a lot. I'm insanely proud of our product.
Gothminister is Bjørn Alexander Brem's heartthrob and alter ego. During the day, the Oslo man works as a lawyer, but at night he appears as a Gothminist. Björn Alexander brings out his creative side through great fashion and music. Gothminister recently played to over 30,000 people in Germany and has toured in over 40 countries over the years. Last year they released the album “Pandemonium”, which won the “Dark Album of the Year” award, and included albums by Rammstein, Placebo and others. Gothminister took several positions in the charts in Germany and won a total of 19 International Film Awards for two of its music videos last year.
Rödt's politician, Jorun Folkvoord, probably received the most attention when she boycotted the live program on NRK. He entered the broadcast carrying the Palestinian flag and a T-shirt that read, “Boycott Israel.”
Folkford apologized for the interruption, but said:
– There is a war going on, and we can do more. Norway can do more.
Earlier in the evening, 116 protesters arrived at the doors of NRK demanding that Israel not be allowed to participate in the popular singing competition.
A major controversy arose after it became known that Israel is one of 36 countries that will participate in the final in Malmo in May.
Hege from Åga will participate in MGP: – I'm a little afraid of tripping on stage. I hope nice people come from Mo i Rana
