Autograph: Martin Johansen got Alexander Rybak’s autograph on his body and will probably not wash that for a while

Happiness is an autograph on the belly

NORD ODAL: Martin Johansen will not wash his belly for a long time. Because his new hero has written his autograph there.

– It was very nice to talk to Alexander Rybak , but I don’t remember what he said, the guy from Sarpsborg says, who was one of nearly 100 mentally challenged  who flocked to the fiddle playing artist after the concert at Sand in Nord-Odal Saturday afternoon. Alexander Rybak took his time with autographs, and he was one of the main reasons for the high show factor of the 5th Morodalsfestivalen.

Fy fela (Fiddle), what a Party!

– “I got an A, so now I can just celebrate and relax. Therefore it has been a pleasure to be here today and to be able to play without the exam nerves that I had earlier this week”, Rybak said backstage.
Earlier that day, he had also arranged a seminar, where a large group of happy kids and youngsters were rehearsing songs, which they performed together with Rybak at the stage show Saturday evening.
