Norway will be among the last countries this year to stage its final but this week we have all three semifinals back to back from Friday to Sunday. Five songs in each and three of them will qualify for the final on March 15, 2014.And NRK has had the good sense of dropping the old and tired MF-imitation formula.

Semifinal 1 - Friday, March 7, 2014

Hilda & Thea Leora - Best friend's boyfriend
Mo - Heal
Dina Misund - Needs
Linnea Dale - High hopes
Timbre & Frikk Heide-Steen feat. Ida Stein - Frozen by your love
Quite a solid pack this first semifinal. I went crazy for any nor I hated any of them. I have no idea who will drop out. I might go for Hilda & Theo and Linnea. Maybe.
UPDATE: Qualifiers are Mo, Dina and Linnea. 

Semifinal 2 - Saturday, March 8, 2014

Cir.Cuz - Hele verden
Martine Marbel - Right now
Oda & Wulff - Sing
Knut Kippersund Nesdal - Taste of you
Charlie - Hit me up
More varied songs in this one.  Yet none jumps out and screams winner, and again none is a total waste. I would drop maybe Charlie and Martine....
UPDATE: Qualifiers are  Oda & Wulff, Knut and Charlie.

Semifinal 3 - Sunday, March 9, 2014

Moi - Bensin
Elisabeth Carew - Sole survivor
Carl Espen - Silent storm
This one's the easiest. I would drop El Cuero and Elisabeth, but it doesn't matter as Carl Espen is here. NRK clearly wanted to save the best for last. He shouldn't have any problem winning this in this company and continue with his storm to Copenhagen. You just forget all the other songs the moment he starts... And we do need a daddy bear in Eurovision! 
UPDATE:  Qualifiers are Elisabeth Carew, El Cuero and Carl Espen.
