#AtoZ: Norway In Eurovision – Part 5/6

Welcome to our first country-specific #AtoZ series. During the National Final season, we will look at a different country alphabetically each week. This week, we are looking at Norway and today we are looking at S-V…

Swahili

Swahili is the fourth language used in Norwegian participation at the Eurovision Song Contest. Swahili appeared when Stella Mwangi participated in Dusseldorf, 2011, with “Haba Haba”. Stella didn’t progress from the Semi Final, finishing in 17th place and a total of 30 points.

Tooji

Tooji followed Stella Mwangi a year later, with his song “Stay”. While Tooji managed to make the Grand Final in Baku, he is also one of the few Norwegian acts to finish last, with a total 7 points. In the Semi Final, Tooji achieved 10th place and 45 points.
