Margaret Berger is an exceptionally talented electro-pop artist from Norway. Although, despite her success at Eurovision 2013, (where she came 4th with entry “I Feed You My Love“). Astonishingly, she appeared just once on EQ Music Blog, which is somewhat unforgiveable considering her stature. However, Margaret is back in the spotlight, thanks to her participation in the Melodi Grand Prix selection process for this year’s competition in Malmo Sweden. Her latest single “Oblivion” has already garnered a significant response. If you haven’t given her music a listen before, now is the perfect time to do so. Margaret’s unique sound is sure to captivate you and leave you wanting more.
It’s intriguing to ponder whether the Norwegians perceive Margaret’s involvement in the Melodi Grand Prix selection process in the same manner as the Swedes did with Scandipop queen Loreen‘s return last year. One could speculate that they are hoping for a victory that follows a similar formula to Loreen’s success. However, with KEiiNO also in the running with another supremely catchy offering in “Damdiggida“, the outcome is uncertain. Only time will reveal whether Margaret’s impressive track record and electrifying new song “Oblivion” will place her in the winner’s circle.
It’s early that I get swept up in the Eurovision excitement! What has me enthused about the track “Oblivion” in particular, is that it’s written by an incredible team of songwriters. An ensemble of songwriting minds that Includes Moyka – one of the most talented Norwegian electronic-pop acts around – alongside Anders Kjaer and Sivert Hagtvet Hjeltenes. With that kind of talent behind it. This is definitely one preliminary Eurovision entry you won’t want to miss!
