Alexander Rybak on the Blue Carpet in ESC 2018 Lisbon 06.05.2018

Alexander Rybak at the opening ceremony of the Eurovision Song Contest ESC 2018 Lisbon 

The opening ceremony  took place 6th of May on the Lisbon riverside, next to MAAT, the Museu de Arte, Arquitetura e Tecnologia. 

With the theme of the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest revolving around the oceans, the organisers chose to replace the traditional red carpet with a spectacular blue carpet.

Alexander and his team were nr 30 to walk the carpet, but were the last one to finish 3 hours after they started, and it was already dark. Most of the interviews made on the Blue Carpet, you’ll find in the playlist below.

Eurovision royalty graces the Blue Carpet in the form of Alexander Rybak!
Alex is also wearing the male uniform of black trousers and black shirt, but he wears a dark teal jacket to match with his team and give him a more distinctive look. His tie is noteworthy, as it was especially made for the occasion by the Norwegian fashion designer Peter Løchstøer.  information from  ESCTODAY.com

  1. Alexander is an International Superstar but at the same time SO HUMBLE AS AN HUMAN BEING…THAT’S WHAT I ADMIRE THE MOST ON HIS PERSONALITY!!!!!

    CONCERING THE “BLUE CARPET” FEEL SO ASHAMED OF MY COUNTRY (Portugal) AND SPECILLY RTP BECAUSE ON THE OPOSITE WITH OTHER COUNTRIES, DIDN’T GAVE THE CHANCE OF ALEXANDER SING A LITTLE OF HIS EPIC MUSIC…PLUS, DIDN’T EVEN ASKED HIM, LIKE DID WITH OTHER COUNTRIES, WHAT WAS HIS FAVOURITE MEAL FROM PORTUGAL…ADD IN THE OPOSITE OF THE OTHER COUNTRIES, DIDN’T ASK HIM WHAT WORDS OR PHRASE HE HAD KOWN FROM PORTUGAL!!!!

    1. We think Alexander got just as long presentation on the Blue Carpet as the other artists. Some of these questions are planned in advanced with the artists, so maybe it was Alexander who wanted it like this.
