Norway has participated in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest three times, and was the host of the 2004 Contest, where it was held in the Norwegian city of Lillehammer.
Norway's best result in the contest came in 2005, when Malin Reitan came third for Norway with the song "Sommer og skolefri". In 2006, NRK decided to withdraw from the contest, along with Sweden's SVT and Denmark's DR due to a rule change that allowed professional kids to participate. Instead the Scandinavian broadcasters revived MGP Nordic, previously held in 2002. Norway has not participated in the contest since. Should Norway return to Junior Eurovision however, TV2 would be eligible.
