Nordisk Melodi Grand Prix was created by the Faroese broadcaster KVF in June 2014 to promote the North Vision Song Contest to viewers in all the Nordic countries and to give newcomers a chance to become known and get a record deal.
Selection and voting process
Each of the broadcasters that are participating have to send one song by an unknown artist or a group. Each country will have to hold a pure televoting in which the voter's favourite will get 10 points, the second-placed country 6 points, the third-placed country 4 points and the fourth-placed country 2 points. The possible rest amount of countries will be awarded 0 points.
Artists of any genre are welcomed to participate for each of the participating countries. According to the rules, the artists should not be well-known to ensure that their win helps them to establish their music career and to prevent unfair voting.
All songs can be performed in the official native language of each country or in English. They can be of any length. There is no rule saying that artists have to add vocals to their song. Pure instrumental songs are also allowed.
The winner of each edition will get to host the following edition of the Nordisk Melodi Grand Prix. The venues are selected by the countries' official broadcasters. Due to the low number of maximum participants, the contest does not have any Semi-finals.
