Alexander about his performance: 
MY NEW TROLOLO VIDEO

Watch this hilarious tribute to Eduard Khil. When I was a young boy, in 2012, I was supposed to perform on stage in London with the legendary Eduard “Trololo” Khil. Unfortunately he didn’t make it and I never got to see him, but his songs remain in our hearts.

Since I’m participating in the Russian show ‪#‎OneToOne‬, I’m happy that I could put on his mask for a while, and sing his world known song. I hope you’ll like my tribute to Eduard Khil. 🙂

Have a nice weekend.

Alex

Alexander Rybak – Cover version of “Kan eg gjørr någe med det” by Sigvart Dagsland

Touched by Rybak

Alexander Rybak concludes the tribute with the 2001 song “Kan eg gjørr någe med det?” and his version touches Sigvart.

– When he did the violin intro and started on the high tones, I was very touched. He has a tremendous musicality. I recognize myself a bit in Alexander, even though we come from very different places, but we click with each other on musicality. It was a beautiful moment, says Sigvart Dagsland (Ref. TV2.no)

REVIEWS

Translated by Tessa Lande. Revised by Katie Anderson.

Dagbladet: Dice 6  (Dagsland/Roalkvam):

An appropriate contribution to the debate after Sigvart has spoken about his reaction to the church’s opposition to homosexuality. And – it is no coincidence that Rybak is the final performer.

This is going to be the best, and he is serious about it! Rybak cultivates interaction and the combination of fiddle, vocals and the simplistic arrangement, and puts all of himself into the song. We have never heard him sing this way – sorely and with strong empathy. The gypsy inspired fiddle playing is both virtuosic and beautiful, and underlines the seriousness and drama. Sigvart claims that he is not easily moved, and here he balances narrowly. A grandiose finale!

VG: Dice 4   (Stein Østbø)
Alexander sings powerfully, but a little bit staccato. He still gives the song an additional coat of naked melancholy through his fiddle. The arrangement is beautiful, dramatic, dark blue and quite a bit sensitive, without ever tending to emotion.

 

Alexander Rybak – Cover version of “Smooth Escape” by Simone Eriksrud

– “The guy is a firework of a performer, and I loved that version. I had hoped that he would do it “Fairytale”-like, and it was exactly what he did. I was blessed afterwards”- says Simone to TV 2 (transl. by Anni Jowett) 

REVIEWS:

(Translation by Hilde M.)

 VG.no by Stein Østbø – Dice 3

Alexander tries to transform 90’s funk into folk music, and that is not an easy task. Alexander only manages half-way. His interpretation does not meet the promise of the sweeping violin intro. But, he sings very well and gives the song a touch of classic Rybak optimism.
