After the hype of “Vha Mehlodhivestoile” is over, one of the contest’s most well known (if not, the most anticipated) National Final Starts. MelodieFestivålen! In a bulletin that came out today, it has been announced that we will be able to vote on April 18th but it has not yet been confirmed when voting closes. Ekozian media outlets criticise the nation as they think the nation has being doing enough in order to win the WorldVision Song Contest – regardless of their perfect rankings. If you thought that MelodieFestivålen would only have one problem, you are wrong. Apparently this edition, only 1 female is participating against a testosterone filled army of nine men. Anja Nissør, a spokeswoman for MelodieFestivålen responded;
“the equal representation of the population, including gender is a huge part of our selection process. Over 60 per cent of the producers and writers of all ten songs are female, it just so happens that only on performer is female. The important thing is the song at the end of the day, because that’s what will get Ekoz to the top of the leaderboard. I’m happy and content that the STE has done a good job at selecting current songs to represent the country“
