NORWEGIAN NATIONAL FINAL 1968

The Norwegian Final was held on March 3rd at the Centralteatret in Oslo, hosted by Jan Voigt. Each of the songs were performed twice (by different performers) – once with a small band and once with an orchestra. Although the original winner was “Jag har aldri vært så glad i no’en som deg”, the composer withdrew the song when it was accused of being similar to  “Summer holiday” by Cliff Richard.
