|Norway in the Eurovision Song Contest|
Norway was represented by three-member girl group Charmed, with the song '"My Heart Goes Boom", at the 2000 Eurovision Song Contest, which took place on 13 May in Stockholm. "My Heart Goes Boom" was chosen as the Norwegian entry at the Melodi Grand Prix on 4 March.
The MGP was held at the studios of broadcaster NRK in Oslo, hosted by Hans Christian Andersen and Stine Buer. Ten songs took part with the winner being decided by a split between televoting and an "expert" jury. There were two rounds of voting; firstly the top four songs were selected, and then voted on again to give the winner. "My Heart Goes Boom" was the winner in both rounds. Runner-up was Jan Werner Danielsen who had represented Norway in 1994. All ten songs were performed in English.

On the night of the final Charmed performed 8th in the running order, following Malta and preceding Russia. The trio gave an energetically choreographed performance, although their stage outfits and hair-styling were the subject of a degree of unfavourable comment. At the close of voting "My Heart Goes Boom" had received 57 points (the highest a 10 from Turkey), placing Norway 11th of the 24 entries, a rather disappointing finish as top 10 had been expected. The 12 points from the Norwegian televote were awarded to Latvia.
