This is how they will cope with the tear bonanza in “Hver Gang Vi Møtes”.

 The seven new participants are not particularly afraid to show emotions, but steel themselves anyway. Pins and waterproof mascara will be packed in the suitcase.

There is certainly a good reason to believe that there will be tears by both the TV-viewers and the artists sat around the dining table.
The new artists are also prepared to share feelings when their private lives will be embellished and songs interpreted in prime time, but not everyone thinks they’re going to cry.

 Alexander Rybak:

– I won’t sign up for something if I feel I have to consider it back and forth. If I know with my whole stomach and heart that it is right, then I say yes right away.
I have said “no” to 100 reality shows in the last three years, and it’s nice that there is now a real musical program where the music is in focus. And so it fits very well that I will be on Norwegian TV since I am making a musical which will hopefully have it’s premiere next year.

Will we see many tears from you?

– I will not guess whether there will be many tears from me or not. The last time I cried was at Disney World in Florida a few weeks ago, but it was the first time I have cried for a few years. And they were tears of joy. If we can manage to create magical moments it will be emotional for everyone, but I will not force anything, he says.
