Norway was represented in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 by the song "In My Dreams" performed by Wig Wam.
Wig Wam is made up of four band members – Teeny (guitar), Glam (vocals), Sporty (drums) and Flash (bass). They all pursued individual music careers with other bands and also undertook solo projects during the 1980s and the 1990s. Wig Wam were formed in February 2001, and had also appeared in MGP in 2004, coming third with "Crazy Things".
On March 5, 2005, viewers were given the chance to help decide which song should represent Norway at the Eurovision Song Contest in Kiev. The Norwegian Final Melodi Grand Prix was held at the Spektrum in Oslo hosted by Ivar Dyrhaug. The rules for the national final were changed for the 2005 contest. Previously NRK used to issue an open call for songs; in 2005 the broadcaster invited composers and artists directly with the aim of providing eight songs for consideration by televoters. The format of the show saw the eight songs performed before a public vote. The top four were then announced to sing again, before a final vote. The winner was the song "In My Dreams", sung by Wig Wam. The song was written and composed by Trond “Teeny” Holter.
Because Norway placed 24th at the 2004 contest, Wig Wam were forced to compete in the Eurovision semi-final, held on 19 May 2005.Group performed 13th, following Estonia and preceding the Romania, Norway qualified to the final, placing 6th in the semi-final and scoring 164 points. In the final they performed 5th, following Romania and preceding the Turkey came 9th with 125 points (including a maximum 12 from Denmark, Finland and Iceland).Meaning that Norway automatically qualified for the final in the 2006 contest.
The spokesperson who revealed Norway's votes for other countries was NRK hosts Ingvild Helljesen.
