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.
