“When I was 4 years old, I and my parents moved from Belarus to Norway. Back then my parents brought some tapes of Russian movies with them. Among them, there was the comedy “The Irony of Fate”. I heard the song «Я спросил у ясеня» (“I Asked the Ash”) in that movie for the first time, said Alexander Rybak. – I’m familiar with the situation that this song tells about. Once, I myself had experienced the same emotions. The girl who I loved, and devoted my song “Fairytale” to, left me for my best friend. It was hard for me to pass through this break up. Now I try not to fall in love, and to put all my feelings into music”. Precisely this song was performed by Alexander in the Ukrainian musical TV-show “Meeting Place” on Saturday. The theme of this episode was cheating. And, in addition, Alexander played a piece of “Bergrosa” as the introduction to the song of another artist.
Alexander invites talented girls to the casting for competing in the national selection for “Eurovision 2015″!
AR: Dear countrymen, you know that I’m a big fan of Eurovision and I’m a big fan of Belarus, so I invite you all to the local auditions for my song for the national selection. Good luck. Yours Sasha Rybak.

Alexander Rybak is in an active searching process. No, the winner of “Eurovision-2009″ has no plans to look for his ladylove. This time, all thoughts of the 28-year-old musician are dedicated entirely to his new projects: the other day, he announced the all-Belarusian casting for a new girl band. Newfound Norwegian Meladze (a famous Ukrainian composer and producer) and his team will personally tour around cities and villages to find the most beautiful and strong-voiced Belarusian girls. In addition to Rybak’s patronage, these girls are promised one more substantial stake: this spring, the new girl band will go to Vienna to conquer the sixtieth anniversary of the “Eurovision Song Contest 2015″.

On new adventures
This week, Alexander Rybak (28) is ready for a duel with Trine Rein (43) in NRK’s new concept “The Hit”. Love, on the contrary, unfortunately has to wait.
- I can’t have a girlfriend. Or rather, I shouldn’t say that for certain. But becoming my girlfriend means getting a lot of harassment from many other girls, and I would not wish that for anyone, Alexander tells Se & Hør. Continue reading »
Alexander took part in recording of the Ukrainian music show called “Meeting Place” which took place this September in Kiev. Each episode of the show has its own special theme and today’s theme was about love, where Alexander performed “Fairytale”. Next week we’ll hear a beautiful Russian song “Ja sprosil u jasenja” from him.
Alexander took part in the Norwegian TV-show “The Hit” on October 10th 2014, where famous artists compete with songs written by amateurs. If you want to read more about the concept of the show, you can find it here. Alexander chose a wonderful song “What I Long For” written by Elisabet Mjanger. Unfortunately, Alexander didn’t win the duel, but he did his best and made a great performance which we can enjoy now! :)
Pleased?: When I look back on my dreams and goals, I’m very pleased with how I have managed my career, says Alexander Rybak. After long parts with practising he likes to play TV-games and is well equiped with both Wii- and Xboxs games.
ON THE DOOR BELL PANEL on Bryggetorget at Aker Brygge there is no “Alexander Rybak”. A Russian-sounding name is, so I try that one, but no one opens the door. Then comes the 28-year-old with long strides across the town square. Tall and dark and slender and handsome, with a brown McDonalds bag in his hand.
- I removed the nameplate because there were so many people ringing the bell, he explains.
