Fairly from the beginning of the heats, the following band, Plumbo were the big favourites to win the ticket to Baku, probably provoced by one of the ”racist” comments the band made during the annual music awards. ”Ola Nordmann” is sung in Norwegian, and it’s got this ethnic little flute playing through the song. It’s not what you would expect from an adult rockband but it is infectious.
Despite being the favourite, and making it through to the superfinal which consisted out of 3 candidates, Plumbo finished behind Nora Foss-Al Jabri who performed a Disney ballad, and eventual winner Tooij.
We do prefer it over the Disney ballad of Nora, no offence, so we thought we give this one the wildcard for the ‘Those Who Didn’t Make it’. Enjoy the video.
Next up… are Iceland!
