Norway was represented by Odd Børre, with the song "Stress", at the 1968 Eurovision Song Contest, which took place on 6 April in London. "Stress" originally finished second in the 1968 Melodi Grand Prix on 3 March, but was promoted to the Norwegian entry when the winning song "Jeg har aldri vært så glad i noen som deg" was withdrawn from the contest by its composer amid persistent allegations that it plagiarised the 1963 hit "Summer Holiday" by Cliff Richard – who was the United Kingdom's singer in the 1968 contest. This is the only occasion on which the MGP winner did not go forward to Eurovision.
