National selections completed

The national selections for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, to be held in Oslo, Norway, in May, have come to a close.

As usual at this time of year, we put a focus on the music from the national finals, songs that didn’t qualify for the big event but still deserve another listen. Many of them are getting a lot of airplay in their home countries, some have become hits already. Our playlist will be kept updated.
