“Finally, an amazing performance by the young heart-throb Norwegian violinist/singer, Alexander Rybak, wowed the audience and had them up on their feet, thumping the tables and floors in rhythm to his catchy violin numbers. The song you hear in the video, is entitled “Fairytale” This song was the winner of the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow, Russia. Alexander reveals that this song’s inspiration came from the Huldra, a beautiful female creature from Scandinavian folklore, who lures young men to her, and then curses them for all time. The Russian language version of the song is entitled “Skazka”.”
