The famous singer admitted that he hopes to conquer the Belarusian show business.
The name Alexander Rybak has been quite familiar for Belarusians for a long time – first, the winner of “Eurovision-2009” has Belarusian roots. Secondly, the guy appears in our country in almost every season, willingly participates in projects (he judged the last season of the “Singing city” on STB), and now he acquired a Belarusian manager. Besides Rybak, Andrey Guzel has the singers Larisa Gribaleva and Sasha Nemo, and the shocking project “Ms. Bride” on his team.

Here is a video containing all the memorable moments of Alexander’s 26th year of life! Many creative people participated in the creation of this video, all of the names are listed at the end of the movie;)
Alexander is born may 13th 1986. On his 24th-birthday, may 2010, he made this video from his parents house at Nesodden and posted it on his facebook-wall. The video had some sound-problems, so this version is improved and uploaded by Yannis Papadopoulos. Russian subtitles by Zhanna Sergueeva. German subtitles by Sabine Fundel. Dutch subtitles by Marijke Arentsen. Romanian subtitles by Jenia Skripnik.
As a special birthday-present for Alexander had been made by his facebook-fans that year, there was also a special birthday-video produced, to congratulate Alexander on may 13th 2010.
Dear reader! December 1st. is the birthday of Kjell Arild Tiltnes!

This year, we decided to give him a very special birthday-present: A book with memories from a discussion-thread, we opened on the fanpage: A fanclub-thread about Kjell Arild.

It was Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2010, when our funny little world began its journey on the internet. This site was started by the Facebookies, friends of Alexander who met each other online, with the ambition to create the top Official International Fansite of Alexander, to gather every single piece of information related to him and to help people get acquainted with his incredible music, personality and talent.
Today, our funny little word is still here, always fresh with the latest news, translations, photos, fan art and videos. It counts almost 45.000 individual visitors from 131 countries, 565 posts and 2256 comments. And the most important, it keeps connecting people from all around the world through Alexander and music.
A warm “thank you” to
all of you
who kept this project alive throughout the year with your contributions, your comments and your love!
And of course, our thanks goes to Alexander, who brought us together and changed our lives!
On 15 July 2009 a new thread was created on Planet Rybak, a newborn then. It was the thread called “Fans own poems and lyrics”, made by Marianne Saietz. During the last year this thread has inspired many Facebookies to express their feelings by creating hundreds of excellent poems! It has also given birth to four SONG BOOKS released by the Facebookies so far, and counting! It has been the earliest sign of the world-famous Facebookies creativity!
On 15 July 2010 we are celebrating its birthday. You are all invited to leave a rhyme, a limerick, a poem, anything 🙂
And finally, the fans will sleep And no one will the facebook keep The latest topic now must wait The wild ideas can hesitate The cleaning-people sweeps the floor clean up the links and threads and more The lights go out and all is shade And even words stay up too late
