Margaret's episode was aired on Saturday, and here are the performances:
First up was Ida Maria, who picked "Samantha":

I was expecting it to be a bit harder and faster, considering that Ida Maria makes rock music. Not bad tho.
Next, Hanne Sørvaag, who picked "Will You Remember Me Tomorrow?", and translated it to her Norwegian dialect, making the Norwegian title "Vil du huska meg i mårå?":
Reviews say it's better than the original, but I can't really agree with that, even if Margaret herself does. It is pretty good tho.
Benny Borg picked a more recent song, "Scream":
Not quite my style, but it might be more fitting to the lyrics and the theme of the song, than the original is. I still prefer the original tho.
Esben "Dansken" Selvig picked "Apologize", and made it into a Norwegian rap song (probably titled "Unnskyld"):
I'm actually not that much of a fan of the original, so this is actually the first version where I think I prefer the new version. Close call tho.
Åse Kleveland isn't a songwriter like the rest, so she got help from Ravi, and they rewrote a song we all know pretty well, "I Feed You My Love". Ravi writes everything in Norwegian, this being no exception, so this is called "En Enkel Sang Å Vinne Verden Med" ("A Simple Song To Win The World With"), and is about Åse and Margaret's experiences as artists representing Norway in ESC, almost 50 years apart:
This is different, and left everyone a bit shocked. These lyrics should be translated tbh, but I'm not entirely sure I'm the right one to do it...
And last up was Eldar Vågan, who picked a song from her first album, "Lifetime Guarantee", and translated it (or actually, the music video) into Norwegian ("Livstidsgaranti"):
This is also different, making this song into tango was unexpected. Pretty funny tho.
And last up, a bonus performance, Margaret and Hanne performing "Vil du huska meg i mårå?":
Hanne Sørvaag's episode was this weekend, and as she's not only known for her own songs, she's also had success as a song-writer for other artists. Margaret picked one of the songs she's written for someone else, "Brief And Beautiful" originally performed by Maria Arredondo, but also released by Hanne herself.
Last artist to be covered is Eldar Vågan, best known as song writer and guitar player in the band Vazelina Bilopphøggers (which is based heavily on the drummer's car parts shop Vazelina Bilopphøggeri), but he's also got a solo career and has played in other bands. Margaret picked one of the early songs from Vazelina, "Gi Meg Fri I Kveld" (Give Me Time Off Tonight).
Next week they're doing duets, and I have no idea what to expect tbh. Except good music.
Kinda forgot about this.
So, the duets program.
The first one Margaret did was with Eldar Vågan, on a song from "Dansken"'s other band, Yoga Fire, called "De eneste i verden" ("The only ones in the world").

The second one she did was with Hanne Sørvaag, on a Christian spiritual song that Ida Maria covered last year, called "Scandalize My Name". I can't find Ida Maria's version on YouTube tho, but there are other (older) versions there.

And since none of the other duets were based on any of Margaret's songs, that's the end of season 6 of this show.
