His MGP entry “Over The Sea” is co-written by Alexander Rybak and JOWST.
And if Spotify is anything to go by, Magnus Bokn will follow them to the finals on Saturday night.
That’s because he’s the most streamed act from Melodi Grand Prix 2020 Semi-Final 4 on Spotify.
“Over The Sea” has notched up almost 10,000 streams at time of publishing. With 9885 streams Magnus Bokn may be the one to beat on Saturday.

However, Magnus may not have it all his own way.
His closest competition comes from Oda Loves You. Oda – who spent seven years in LA – has earned 8973 streams since she released “Love Who We Love”. The upbeat entry could cause an upset during the duels.
Hege Berk follows in third. Her song “Pang”, which is sung in the Jærsk language, has been streamed 6956 times.
Bringing up the rear are The Nordic Tenors. They lag some distance behind the rest of the competition. “In This Special Place” has only managed to reach 3305 streams since release. That suggests they may be out of the running during the duels in the Semi-Final.

There are only two semi-finals left in the competition and only two more spaces left in the ten-song final in Trondheim.
Confirmed finalists are:
Tone Damli – “Hurts Sometimes”
Sondrey – “Take My Time”
Didrik & Emil Solli-Tangen – “Out Of Air”
Akuvi – “Som du er”
Ulrikke Brandstorp – “Attention”
Raylee – “Wild”
Rein Alexander – “One Last Time”
Kristin Husøy – “Pray For Me”.
In each semi-final one of the five pre-qualified finalists has also performed their song. Ulrikke Brandstorp has that honour this week. Her entry “Attention” is a ballad and a total change of pace from her 2017 entry “Places”.
International fans can watch the Semi-Final live from 19:50CET on the MGP website.
