I’m travelling a crazy amount, I have a lot concerts and I have no time for myself, but I tried very hard, and finally I managed to see the positive sides of this pace of life – I found a soul mate. My relationship with her is ideal, because .. we rarely see each other. When I come home and we meet, we are just too attracted to one another, to be looking for something to get angry about. So we keep good relations”,- the performer known not only in Europe revealed to Delfi over the phone the secret of a happy relationship.

“Alexander Rybak considers Montvydas as one of the favorites and wants to shake his hand”

The winner of “Eurovision” in 2009 Alexander Rybak  who will come to perform at the final show of the “Voice of Lithuania” during Easter, said in an exclusive interview to DELFI that he is very interested in the contestants of this year and their songs. He mentioned the representative of Lithuania Donatas Montvydas as one of the favorites.

“I saw the performance of your representative, and as a person he is very similar to the guys from Back Street Boys. But seriously Donatas Montvydas sings very purely in tune, and I’m really looking forward to his performance on the “Eurovision” stage. I also like that he sings alone, without  dancers. Watching such a performance you  hear the music instead of seeing some men showing off behind the performers. However during my performance there were dancers too, but it was just decided like that, I would be happy to sing without them as well. I hope to meet D. Montvydas on “Eurovision”, but not because he needs my advice, but just to shake the hand of this great guy for everything he does, “- said Alexander Rybak to DELFI .
