They’re one of Norway’s most decorated party bands and reached the final of Melodi Grand Prix in 2011.

And if Spotify streams are anything to go by, Sie Gubba may repeat history on Saturday night.

That’s because Sie Gubba’s song “Kjære Du” is the most streamed entry from Semi-Final 3 of Melodi Grand Prix 2020.

The VG-Lista topping band have notched up 13,049 streams ahead of Saturday night’s Semi-Final. That puts them in pole position to advance to the final at the close of voting.

Sie Gubba most streamed act from Semi-Final 3 of MGP 2020

The country rockers’ closest competition looks set to be ex-boyband member Alexandru.

His track “Pink Jacket” has also passed the 10,000 mark. At time of publishing his electropop entry has been streamed 10,775 times. That puts him within striking distance of the country rockers.

Eighteen year-old ex-Voice contestant Kristin Husøy follows in third. Her Nashville-number “Pray For Me” has been streamed 9964 times.

Thomas Løseth and Erika Norwich are the least streamed act this week. Their anthemic entry “Vertigo” has been streamed 8349 times. That puts them just under 5000 streams behind leaders Sie Gubba.

On the eve of semi-final three of Norway’s newly expanded Melodi Grand Prix 2020, the third pre-qualified entry has been released. Akuvi’s “Som du er” dropped just after midnight local time on Friday 24 January. The song will receive its live premiere during the third semi-final of MGP 2020. However, unlike the other four performing acts, Akuvi won’t need to compete for a spot in the final. She’ll only be showcasing the track as she’s a guaranteed finalist. Akuvi is a singer-songwriter with Norwegian-Ghanaian heritage. She comes from a musical family. Her sister Anna-Lisa Kumoji competed at MGP 2019 with “Holla”, which placed fourth in the superfinal. #mgp2020 #nrkmgp #akuvi #eurovision

This week’s prequalified finalist is Akuvi. Her entry “Som du er” was released on streaming platforms overnight. She’ll perform the song in the semi-final, but won’t have to compete in duels to advance to the final.

As in the past weeks three duels will decide who make the Melodi Grand Prix 2020 final in Trondheim. Acts are sorted at random into two preliminary duels, with the winning acts facing a final duel before winning their ticket to Trondheim.

You’ll be able to watch the show live from 19:50CET through the Melodi Grand Prix website.

Completely upside down for me

The thing is they can be good predictors but they can only predict which song sounds better , but in this case the difference is not significant enough for them to even do that
Like say 2nd place song got 10,000 streams and 1st place got 50, 000 , then it would predict something

The visual aspect of the song’s performance also is not covered

I am hoping for a Sie Gubba win, it is classic Eurovision fare. I have a feeling they will be great live as well.

Anything which is “Classic Eurovision” is usually not a good sign for me

For me, classic is different to dated.

Classics usually continue to be relevant because they are good and popular. I am prepared to be wrong, but watch out, I think Sie Gubba might win.

Obviously I have no idea what they are saying – if the chorus is how he has hidden the babysitters body in the freezer, perhaps it won’t win.

Spirit in the Sky was so Eurovision and was beloved by fans and even more by locals

Considering that Jaeger was the most streamed last week, and Lisa Børud the week before, I’m pretty confident in the fact that Spotify numbers can’t predict anything.
