“You could have got me to the altar now”
– I am not easily touched,- Alexander Rybak said in “Hver Gang Vi Møtes”. But the best interpretation of the night touched everyone.
– This song was written during a time when I still trusted blindly in people,- Alexander Rybak said in tonight’s “Hver Gang Vi Møtes”. And it was Sigvart Dagsland who touched and surprised the most when he in tonight’s program had rewritten the ballad “13 Horses” in Norwegian.
