Norway's entry into the Eurovision Song Contest 1995 was "Nocturne" by Secret Garden. It went on to win that year's Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin, marking Norway's second first-place finish in its history in the Contest.

Results[edit]

The MGP was held at the studios of the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation in Oslo, hosted by Petter Nome. Ten songs took part with the winner being chosen by voting from regional juries, a jury based in Dublin consisting of previous Irish ESC winners and televoting. Other participants included Geir Rønning, who would later represent Finland in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005.[1]
