Eurovision winner Alexander Rybak is currently appearing in a popular Norwegian music reality tv show.
The show is called “Hver gang vi møtes” which translates as “Every time we meet”. The tv show is being recorded at present at Vestre Kjærnes Farm in Våler (Norway).
The premise of the show is that 7 Norwegian musicians stay in the one house and re-arrange and record each other’s songs.
The 7 Norwegian stars taking part in the show are Lars Lille-Stenberg, Samsaya, Øivind Elgenes, Anneli Drevker, Sigvart Dagsland, Simone Eriksrud and Alexander Rybak.
Before entering the house for the show, Rybak was asked the following question by VG magazine
1 Why are you participating?
Rybak – There is so much positivity and liberation in the programme. I have never been so unafraid to speak directly “from the heart” as I am in this program.
2 To what degree/How much does your career need this?
Rybak – No matter how I answer this question, it will sound “cocky”. But it is a golden moment for me to stay in this Norwegian countryside paradise, and open myself up one more step.
3 Who has been your “Hver gang vi møtes” favourite in previous seasons?
Rybak – Just as Kurt Nilsen set an inhuman level at the first season of “Idol”, I would say that Vinni made it for “Hver Gang Vi Møtes”.
4 Is the programme important for the music, or is it just pure TV entertainment?
Rybak – I would say this is the best music entertainment programme there is.
5 How much are you going to cry?
Rybak – If there is one place my façade can be broken, it must be here.
Expect tears and music – it sounds like Eurovision all over again.
