Norske Talenter (English: Norway’s got talent, lit. Norwegian Talents) is a Norwegian-based talent show with a similar format to Britain's Got Talent, which thus makes it one of the Got Talent franchise programmes. The 16-year-old singer Erlend Bratland won the first series and Quick, a hip hop dance group, won the second series. The judges were music producer Jan Fredrik Karlsen, singer and actress Mia Gundersen and comedian/actor Thomas Giertsen. In 2008 Marte Stokstad and Sturla Berg-Johansen were hosts, and in 2008, Berg-Johansen joined Pia Lykke to be hosts.
