Norway: Semifinal 1 - live & results

The Norvegian selection is getting bigger and a better show every year it seems. This year Surferosa opened it with a bang! What an earth was she wearing? There was a lot of 80's Cyndi Lauper and Toyah with a good amount of Pink thrown in.
Next followed two housewifes or Chicas del coro from the 50's all dressed up doing a nice karaoke number. High entertainment value for a national final. Right after the welcome return of the wind machine and an elderly lady with high notes followed by some shouty rap by two youngsters Ke Sera. Nice intro but that's all there was for me I'm afraid.... Espen Hana, a certain kind of gentleman - the kind stuck in the 70's with challenging sideburns and open shirt to show some chesthair - followed with a song so familiar I thought it was an interval act. Next to more Eurovision friendly stuff: Charite. And as the song isn't much to talk about one question rises: what was she wearing as shoes??? And that wardrobe disaster in general? Was it designed and put together by Lena Philipsson circa 1988? Thomas Brøndbo was next with a song that was as bland as his choise of color. Like a storm? Hardly.... To finish off it was the Norvegian Pussycat Dolls or Spice Girls also known as Velvet with a song that wasn't tricky at all but very catchy and very Britney Spears in a good way. I think I like it...
I think Surferosa and Velvet should make it...

Now let's wait for the results.... Ok, Surferosa and Espen Hana (!!) to the second chance round and Velvet to the final! Yes! And the other one is... Thomas Brøndbo !!?? Oh dear...
