The Eve Before 2017

Haddy N'jie and Ingrid Gjessing Linhave are visited by Marcus & Martinus and Prime Minister Erna Solberg.

It will be the "same procedure as last year" when Ingrid Gjessing Linhave, Haddy N'jie and Jørn Hoel invite you to a pre-Christmas party at NRK on Christmas Eve. StarWorks is involved in the stage direction and in the editorial.

Set the alarm a little before 9 p.m. on Christmas Eve, pull the chair up to the NRK route and the pre-Christmas mood can be exactly as it has been for the past 37 years. "The evening before the evening" gathered 1.4 million viewers in front of the TV screens last year. This year, as last year, StarWorks has the stage direction, this year they also have 5 StarWorkers with them in the house choir. (Alexandra Rotan, May Kristin Kaspersen, Marianne Solberg Follestad, Alexander Langset and Mikkel Gythfeldt.) Eirik Berge is musically responsible.

Artists and guests

Norwegian celebrities line up on the guest list. Two pairs of brothers visit the broadcast, both the twin brothers Marcus & Martinus and the brothers Bård and Vegard Ylvisåker. Prime Minister Erna Solberg also stops by, as does Robert Stoltenberg, actor and comedian Atle Antonsen and artist Ida Maria.

"The evening before the evening" ends with a concert with Ole Edvard Antonsen, Didrik Solli-Tangen and Stine Hole Ulla.

While the guests come and go, the stove simmers and the Christmas food is prepared. This year, as last year, it is artist and food enthusiast Jørn Hoel, and TV chef Øyvind Hjelle, who will give the viewers good advice on the way to successful ribs, pork chops and cod.

Ribs minute by minute Øyvind Hjelle has worked out a recipe for long-roasted ribs. It is said to be almost impossible not to get it perfect. This entire roasting process is broadcast on NRK2 on Christmas Eve. There, viewers can follow the ribs step by step and degree by degree. In a specially constructed oven with cameras on the inside, there will be slow-motion TV throughout the day from 09.55 until serving at 17.00.
