Norway is country number 20 of 26 countries in the final, after Ukraine.
Alessandra Mele performed “Queen of Kings”, which she wrote with Henning Olerud, Stanley Ferdinandez and Linda Dale.
The final starts at 21:00 Norwegian time on Saturday.
Loreen and Sweden were still the big favorites in the final, followed by Finland, who fielded rapper Käärijä.
– The vocals are set
Morten Thomassen, president of club MGP Norway, was pleased with what he saw of Alessandra in Friday’s first dress rehearsal.
– He did really well. It sounds like the vocals are set and he has the right energy. So this is what promises to be for tonight’s final jury, he told NTB.
What’s new this year is that the judges’ votes are not counted in the semifinals, meaning that the people’s favorite can get an advantage there. However, in the final, the national jury’s votes counted for half the total – and this was determined based on the second test on Friday.

Pyro is gone
Johan Patrick Bredesen, reporter for Eurovision Norway still missing the “little extra” at the end of the show, in the form of a fireworks display or something.
– And then I probably felt that he was holding back a little in some part of the case. He’s probably saving up for the jury show tonight, and I can understand that. I still hope Norway gets a good position this year, he added, he told NTB.
In general, Bredesen was very impressed with what he saw in the dress rehearsal for the last broadcast.
– This is probably one of the strongest Eurovision finals we’ve ever had. There are many good and strong songs that stand out. We’re a group that after every song we think we’re going to end up in the top five. This is a very high level this year, said a Eurovision Norway reporter.
– I really struggled to find the legendary dope in this show, he added.
