So, we’re at the halfway mark, and to celebrate that we give you a Norwegian (and Belarussian) gem. (No, there’s no prize if you guessed who…)

Alexander Rybak represented Norway in the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow. He won the contest with his own song “Fairytale”, with a total of 387 points.

I'm Norwegian, presently living in Iceland. My mom loves Eurovision, and always let me stay up to watch the contest since before I can remember, so I'm "second generation Eurovision lunatic". My musical god is David Bowie, so I'm obviously not into the stereotypical Eurovision songs. I prefer the rocky/bluesy/jazzy/ethnic songs over schlager and mainstream ballads, though I occasionally surprise myself (and others)... I HATE canned drums and "Cvet Z juga". Photo © Tobias König
