When it comes to Norway, the Eurovision audience runs hot and cold. The Norwegians have won the contest three times. They have also come in last 11 times; earning null points four of those times.
The last couple of years, though, Norway has been hot with 2013’s Margaret Berger finishing in 4th place and 2014’s Carl Espen coming in a very respectable 8th place. So, will 2015 prove hot or cold for the Scandinavian nation?
Mørland & Debrah Scarlett will be waving the Norwegian flag in Vienna after winning the national competition with their song A Monster Like Me. There is an official video that I really don’t care for. I think it’s silly and doesn’t do much to show off their performance skills. If you must see it, you can find it here.
This video is from their winning performance at Melodi Grand Prix.
I don’t know about you, but I’m hot for Norway! What a great duet. Mørland’s soulful voice blends smoothly with Debrah Scarlett’s smoky, bluesy sound. I love the song. A Monster Like Me isn’t your typical ballad. It’s dark and turbulent, but also romantic. Catchy, too. For me, this is top 5 material at the very least. We’ll see whether the Eurovision voters get hot and bothered, too, or turn a cold shoulder.
Best wishes and kisses to Mørland & Debrah Scarlett!
