Rybak did not disappoint.
When Alexander Rybak went on stage in Bø church Thursday evening, the roof was almost lifted. It turned out to be a great free concert for the fans, as a way of consolation because he did not come before Christmas.
The popular artist, who won the ESC in 2009, is a conscientious, open, very nice and sympathetic boy. Rybak was sincerely sad because he didn’t manage to come to Bø before Christmas, to participate in the concert “Vinterbilder” [the journalist wrote "Vinterstemning"]. Therefore he came now.
- I had an encounter with a Russian bear, which stopped me from coming, he joked.
The choir school in Bø had their semester opening this evening, and all the 5 choirs in Bø were invited. They sang a little in the beginning.
- It was Alexander Rybak himself who took the initiative to come to Bø. He rang and asked if we had an event he could participate in, and he was willing to perform for free. We made this mini concert with all the 5 choirs, where Alexander got to be our special guest, the choir leaders Grete Sele and Rolf Akselsen Lie tell.
Alexander Rybak had a bad conscience for a concert he lost in Bø before Christmas. Yesterday 10.01.2012, he made up for it with a mini concert and half an hour of autograph writing

Good to have it done
A cancelled plane made Alexander Rybak miss a Christmas concert in Bø before Christmas. Last night he made up for it.
– It was sad to know that there was a town in Norway where I hadn’t completed my task, …I just had to do something about it,- Alexander said after yesterday’s mini concert in Bø church. Before Christmas he travelled around with Dennis Storhøi and Anne Vada with the concert tour Vinterbilder. Two weeks before Christmas, Bø was on the schedule, but when the artists came on stage, Rybak wasn’t there. Bad weather made him stuck in Munich.

Big party before Christmas with Rybak in Heradsbygd
Saturday evening, a big pre-Christmas-party took place in Heradsbygd Church. We were guests at the program, “Vinterbilder”, with actor Dennis Storhøi, singer Anne Vada and Alexander Rybak and two musicians.
It was a concert, that gave us a great Christmas-spirit.
