Morten Thomassen looks at the second last song that did not make it to the 2023 Norwegian Eurovision final. ESC Covers google translated it from Norwegian to English.
This series ends with the two biggest peels we got if you look at the percentage chance the individual songs had to qualify according to the bookmakers.
Akuvi should have a full 76% chance of making it to the final and normally there should be a fair fight, but obviously not this year.
Now it must be said that these previously mentioned game-makers had not seen the live performance before setting the odds, but in the case of Akuvi I think they probably also missed in other areas.
As expected, she delivered the goods and sure enough, here it was full action almost from the first note and you can see that this is music this girl feels at home with.
It’s just a shame that in the eyes of many, Norway is not quite at home when it comes to songs like this and as previously mentioned in this series, she had another exotic song to fight against in this semi final.
In addition, she may appear to be tough on stage, but that can easily be mistaken for angry and perhaps some reacted to that as well.
