Subwoolfer, the mysterious masked duo, won the Melodi Grand Prix and thus the chance to represent Norway at this year’s Eurovision Competition in Turin.
Howling their way to success
The Norwegian masked pop duo, Subwoolfer, has won this year’s Melodi Grand Prix competition. Their success means they will the official Norwegian entrant for the Eurovision competition held later this year in Turin.
The duo, a pre-show favorite to win, won with their song “Give That Wolf A Banana” winning 56.56% of the audience vote and edging out “Someone” by NorthKid in the final. The two finalists beat eight other national artists performing at H3 Arena at Fornebu in Bærum.
Already planning for the Eurovision finals
Carl Henrik-Wahl, the spokesperson for the secret singers, was asked how the duo would prepare for the Eurovision finals. Noting they had already planned their performance, Wahl quoted the duo as saying “We have to learn a little Italian and continue working. We have already released a song called “Give The Wolf A Romantic Banana”, so then we have warmed up a bit. Now he also says behind me here that he has learned that spaghetti and linguini mean “vote for us.”
The identity of the duo remains a mystery and the intergalactic wolves only go by the name of “Jim” and “Keith”. There is speculation that Ylvis, Gaute Ormåsen, or former A1 singer Ben Adams could all be the voices behind the wolf masks.
The 66th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest will be held in Turin, Italy, after the Italian rock band, Måneskin, won last year. The semi-finals will be held on 10-12 May with the final on 14 May. Norway’s entrant last year, rapper Tix finished in 18th place in the final.
