If the Norwegian music charts are an indication of how popular their Eurovision entry is now, several weeks after selection, then Margaret Berger should be worried! Adelen was the runner-up at Melodi Grand Prix this year with the infectious song “Bombo” and is currently number 1 in the Norwegian charts. What makes this even more impressive is that “I Feed you my Love” by winner Margaret Berger is not to be found in the Top 10 at all.

Once MGP was played out Margaret was number 1 for a few weeks but Adelen was number 2 at the same time. Where as “I Feed You My Love” has fallen off the charts “Bombo” is number 1 on the overall charts – and not just the download charts.
Is this the Norwegian public looking back at their decision in February with regret? With Summer desperately trying to break through this eternal winter – could “Bombo” have been the ray of sunshine that Norway could have offered Eurovision 2013? Can you explain how Adelen is winning the sales chart battle in Norway by a considerable amount over “I Feed You My Love”?
