Eurovision Winner Alexander Rybak is to appear on the Irish devised show ‘The Hit’. The ‘Fairytale’ singer will be competing in the weekly knock out rounds to find a new song and gain the most votes from the public each week. In Ireland the votes are actually determined by the song that has the highest chart success in the following 7 days.
This year it saw the return of Eurovision legend Johnny Logan and 2006 contestant Brian Kennedy to the Irish Charts. As in Ireland – the legendary music producer Steve Lillywhite has selected 42 songs for the Norwegian artists to try to find their next ultimate ‘Hit’ record.
Rybak will not have it his own way as he will also be competing against fellow Eurovision star Maria Haukaas Mittet (2008)
Who will come out on top? The first show will be broadcast on NRK (Norwegian National Broadcaster) on Friday September 5th with the weekly challenges taking place until the Grand Final on October 24th. Alexander will be appearing on the Friday October 10th show.
Will he or Maria win the Norwegian ‘Hit’? Time will tell.
