Alexander Rybak

And we’re back after a brief outage to format the hard drive and install Windows 7.  The biggest news during our absence?  A certain singer looking to make history for Norway.

Alexander Rybak won the Melodi Grand Prix, Norway’s qualification show for the Eurovision song contest.  Not only that, but some commenters are calling “Fairytale” a favorite heading into the competition in Moscow in May.

Here’s a link to his performance.  The song invokes traditional Norwegian music and the dancers match with aspects of traditional Norwegian dance.

  1. Alexander’s song is quite amazing, it I may say so (and, I may).

    Not only is he singing and playing the violin, but he also wrote both music and lyrics for the song himself. Rybak is obviously an outstanding talent, and I believe he can very well win the Eurovision Song Contest in May.

    Although, being a Swede myself, I am slightly biased towards Sweden’s entry — La Voix, with Malena Ernman — my vote would go for Norway.

    12 points for Norway, from me!
