Tonight is the second semi-final of the Norwegian Melodi Grand Prix (Eurovision Song Contest), where Morten’s daughter Tomine will perform the song “Be Good To Me”.

Because of a-ha’s trip to Germany, Morten won’t be able to be part of the audience in Bodø, where the show is held. And that is one of the reasons why Tomine wants to make it to the final. “I have to make it to the next round so my father gets a chance to see me on stage“, Tomine told VG a few days ago.

Tomine can be proud of the beautiful song she will be performing. And Grand Prix is a great arena in which to present it“, Morten says in today’s VG.

The show can be seen live on NRK’s web-TV here, starting at 19.55. “Be Good To Me” can already be heard here.

Update: Tomine did a good performance, but did not get enough votes to go to the final.
