It was during a live interview with NRK Ukeslutt that Gåte member Magnus Børmark said what he wasn’t supposed to say. When asked if a lot of exciting things happened in the MGP scenes, he replied as follows: – Now I have just greeted Carola in the hallway here. No, I haven’t, he shouts. It was the twin sisters, writes the channel.
– It was just fun that Gåte revealed our little Carola secret. Actually, we had made an attempt to hide her from everyone, but we obviously didn’t quite succeed. We had even placed Carola in a different hotel from the other artists to avoid them meeting, says project manager Mads Tørklep.

Tørklep tells Dagbladet the same. The newspaper points out that the Swedish artist has posted several photos in her story on Instagram that she is in Trondheim.
– We have to admit that there are now starting to be a bit too many clues that point her in the direction of the MGP final, says Mads Tørklep, project manager for MGP.
However, he does not want to say what kind of role the Swedish artist has during the Norwegian final.
– Without revealing in detail what Carola will do, I can reveal that she may appear on the screen tonight. And I can say that it will be a moment worth capturing.
Häggkvist broke through in 1983 with the song Främling, which was Sweden’s entry to the Eurovision Song Contest and reached third place. In addition, she won the international music competition in 1991 with the song “Fångad av en stormvind”.
These also make a comeback on stage
Häggkvist is not the only guest artist to be seen on stage tonight.
During the dress rehearsal, a number of former winners of Melodi Grand Prix could be seen rehearsing before the evening’s broadcast.
Including Bobbysocks, Alexander Rybak (37), Ulrikke Brandstorp (28), and Andreas “Tix” Haukeland (30).
The artists have in common to have won the Norwegian MGP final in the past. In addition, both Bobbysocks and Rybak have captured first place in the international final in previous years.
