Chronology

Idol: Jakten på en superstjerne 2004 was the second season of Idol Norway based on the British singing competition Pop Idol. It premiered one year after the first season and was aired in the first half of 2004.

Unlike last year's winner Kurt Nilsen, his successor Kjartan Salvesen was not able to build up an international career. Other alumni of this season were more successful, most notably runner-up Margaret Berger, who established a career as an electronic dance artist and went on to become the music director of NRK P3 in 2008. [1] Berger would also represent Norway at the Eurovision Song Contest 2013, placing fourth. Another contestant was Maria Haukaas Storeng who, to the surprise of many,[who?] was voted off sixth but went on to represent Norway in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2008 achieving fifth place.
