Norway: an internal product


Last week, Universal Music Group released the CD containing all the songs of Junior ESC. Interesting fact is that the CD from the Melodi Grand Prix Junior from Norway is number 4 in the official Album Charts of the scandinavian country.


The Melodi Grand Prix Junior was the anual event and format used to select the entry for Junior Eurovision when Norway took part on it Between 2003 and 2005, before NRK decided to withdraw from the contest.


Also interesting is the fact that MARCUS & MARTINUS, the winners of MGP Junior from 2012 hitted the album charts at number 1. Definitely, Norway adopted the supposed national final of Junior for internal consumption.


Bulgaria placed second last year and Italy was the previous winner.
