Close call in The Battle of the Stars!

...and Trine Rein is on to the semi final! Eight down, two to go in NRK Stjernekamp!Only three contestants left in The Battle of the Stars, Stjernekamp, and at this point, the artists can almost smell blood in the competition. What a marathon, what a journey, and what an achievement to compete week after week in this very challenging TV show. Trine was one of two contestants with the fewer votes last night, but luck was on her side as contestant and very talented artist, Heidi Gjermundsen Broch sadly had to leave the competition.

The upcoming week is scheduled for rehearsals in Norwegian folk songs and EDM - Electronic Dance Music. Trine's choice of songs will be a very famous song by Svein Dag Hauge, originally performed by artist Olav Stedje: Vi Vandrar Saman. It will be a great honor for Trine to perform this particular song as writer, producer and guitar virtuoso Svein Dag Hauge has been one of her very good friends and colleagues throughout her career.

As far as the EDM genre goes, Trine has picked Florence and the Machine's hit Spectrum (Say my name) as her second performance for this upcoming Saturday.

"I'm sooo excited about still being in the competition, and I'll do my absolute best to make it to the final! Thank you, thank you, thank you all so much for all your votes throughout these weeks. It's been an awesome ride no matter what happens, and I am very, very grateful!" Trine says. "See you Saturday!"
