One day before semi-final one of Norway’s newly expanded Melodi Grand Prix 2020, the first pre-qualified entry has been released. Sondrey’s “Take My Time” dropped in the early hours of Friday 10 January.
The song will receive its live premiere during the first semi-final. However, unlike the other four performing acts, Sondrey won’t need to compete for a spot in the final.
He’ll only be showcasing the track as he’s a guaranteed finalist.

Sondrey is an R&B singer and a championship 100- and 200-metre sprinter. In 2019, he competed in the celebrity singing show Stjernekamp where he placed third.
