With NRK decision to be allowed Autoton As an aid to improve the listening experience and to ‘rescue’ singers who sing sadly during MGP, discussion is ongoing.

Perhaps I will be one of the few who will not use this help. As an old-school artist, I set extremely high standards for live performances and never liked the auto-tune direction, unless it was to make an impact in the soundscape.

Autotune is not allowed in the Eurovision final. Should it be allowed on Norwegian MGP broadcasts?

Norwegian public It can quickly feel swindled if we send a local foot singer, but he didn’t deliver internationally when the help was over. That said, I have full confidence in MGP CEO Stig Karlsen and his colleagues. They choose singers who have what it takes to deliver

I understand Even many “song” programs now use autotune. For my part, it would be completely wrong not to sing with your own voice. If not, you can almost put a soundtrack to the song.

Being an artist also means that you should be able to sing your songs live. If you sing badly after that, well, you just have to practice hitting the notes a bit more. Autotune also affects the roughness, dynamics, and emotion of a song. I want to keep that in my MGP contribution “Someday”. I use my own voice.
