Rybak cracked the music code.
Just in time for the Finnish Eurovision finals the 2009 Norwegian Eurovision winner Alexander Rybak will visit Finland. For next year’s race, he would like to write a song for a Finnish artist.
Many will recall Alexander Rybak, 27, as the guy who along with his violin took Europe by storm with the song Fairytale at Eurovision in Moscow in 2009. Rybak is happy about the lift that Eurovision gave his career, with more than over half a million fans today following on Facebook. “But the Eurovision victory is not a wave you can ride on forever”,- he says.
