In the TV-show “En kveld med Kloppen” (An evening at Kloppen’s place), Solveig Kloppen invites three famous people she is curious about and fascinated by to her own home for a pleasant evening. Solveig is a dab hand at parties and good mood, but she is hopeless when it comes to cooking. She therefore offers the house and wine, while her guests contributes with a simple dish each.

Alexander was the one who made the main course, and here is  the recipe:

Alexander in a parody about Eurovision in Eurovision 2016

Love Love Peace  Peace

AlexanderRybak interval act Eurovision 2016Alexander Rybak  took part in the interval act in the Eurovision finale 2016. Watch the video below. The number is called “Love Love Peace Peace”, and according to Edward af Sillen the audience during the show 60 years has never seen a parody of the Eurovision in Eurovision. The bombastic tribute is about the trick to win Eurovision, which is analyzed at an institute in Switzerland and emerges the best of the winning songs:

– Everything crazy you have seen, from old ladies who bake bread to men in hamster wheels, and it’s apparently okay in Eurovision.

The number where the hosts Mans Zelmerlöw and Petra Mede – appearing in Charlotte Perrellis pink winning costume from 1999 – singing and dancing, shows a mix of everything. In addition to the old bread baking grannies and men in a hamster wheel, Alexander Rybak playing the violin on stage, while bare-chested men playing drums and then, among other things, Lordi pops up.

Alexander appears from 1.09 in the video 🙂
