Norway: Magnus Bokn Qualifies for Melodi Grand Prix Final

The fourth Melodi Grand Prix semi-final has taken place, where four acts competed with just one qualifying spot up for grabs.

It was previously announced that the Norwegian selection would consist of five semi-finals, with four acts in each semi-final. Just one act will qualify each week, and the qualifiers will join five already qualified artists, Sondrey, Didrik & Emil, Akuvi, Ulrikke Brandstorp and Tone Damli.

The four competing acts in the semi-final were put into two duels, where a winner was decided for each duel. The winners would then move onto the ‘Gold Duel’ where the winner would then qualify to the Melodi Grand Prix final. The results were decided completely by online voting.

Here are the duels:

  • Magnus Bokn – ‘Over The Sea’ vs Oda Loves You – ‘Love Who We Love’
  • Nordic Tenors – ‘In a Special Place’ vs Hege Bjerk – ‘Pang’

The winners of the first round were Magnus Bokn and Nordic Tenors, with Magnus Bokn taking out the top spot with his song, Over the Sea.

In each semi-final, one of the pre-qualified artists will perform their song during the show and this week Ulrikke performed her song, Attention.
