Norwegian Grammy Awards (Spellemann): ..and the nominees are

Today the Norwegian Grammy Award (Spellemannsprisen), held a press-conference at Sentralen in Oslo. The nominees got presented to press and bloggers. Some of my favourites from 2016 got nominated as well: Tortusa, MK’s Marvellous Medicine, Nils Bech, Hilma Nikolaisen, Hjerteslag and Kvelertak.

This year the Norwegian Grammy Awards are divided into to different events: The award ceremony and the award show. The award ceremony will be held 28. January at Sentralen, and the show will be at Sentrum Scene at the same date.

But there can’t be an award ceremony without any nominees, so here they are!
