NRK, the Norwegian national broadcaster, has announced Autotune, a change to Melodi Grand Prix 2023, which is currently not allowed at the Eurovision Song Contest.
Stig Karlsen, the Norwegian Head of Delegation, had the following to say:
“MGP follows the development of the concert industry and music shows on TV, by allowing tuning of the lead vocal for MGP 2023. It is absolutely essential that the artists we select for MGP deliver at a high level, even without tuning. In those cases where we do not know the artist’s performance level live, they are invited to an audition.”
