Parodi Grand Prix is the biggest annual Eurovision fan event in Norway, usually held in May, before the international Eurovision Final. The show has been held every year since 2005.
Parodi Grand Prix is a show and competition made up like a Eurovision Song Contest, where the entries are funny versions of old Eurovision classics. The entrants are a mix of professional and amateur actors and singers.
The show was born ten years ago as an amateur show at a local pub in Bergen, Norway, but has grown a lot since that. Qualification heats have been held in several Norwegian cities, and the best acts have met in Bergen for a national final each year.
The final has been held in Grieghallen, the building that hosted the 1986 Eurovision Song Contest Final. This is also where the 10 year anniversary will be held on November 15th.
In previous editions of the show, international acts like Kikki Danielsson (Sweden 1982 and 1985), Charmed (Norway 2000), Baccara (Luxembourg 1978) and Sandra Kim (Belgium 1986), as well as Norwegian representatives like Mira Craig (composer, Norway 2008), Bjørn Johan Muri (Norway 2010), Stig van Eijk (Norway 1999) and Kate Gulbrandsen (Norway 1987) have all taken part of the show. Norwegian nationals like Kathrine Strugstad (Norway 2005 and 2006), Queentastic (Norway 2006), Kim Fairchild (Norway 1993), Jenny Jenssen (Norway 2007) and Endré Nordvik (Norway 2011) has also been competing for the Grand Prix of parodies.
After the show, there is a big Eurovision Afterparty with all the hits you love.
