Juergen Boernig from Eurovision Radio International met Alexander Rybak for an interview during Alexander’s stay in Luxembourg for the ESC Gala Night 2014. The interview was aired in their 3 hour long live stream radio show on Wednesday 29th of October. It was a very good interview about his participation as a composer in the national selection for both Malta, with “Still Here” performed by Franklin Calleja, and Belarus with the song “Accent” performed by a girl band. They also played his new song “What I Long For”.

This was actually my first time in Luxembourg, and I have to say I really enjoyed it!
One of the reasons was, of course Alexander. He performed 3 songs at the Eurovision Gala Night, “Roll with The Wind, “Into a Fantasy” and last but not least “Fairytale”.

The atmosphere was absolutely gorgeous. Everybody was in a happy mood, especially when Alexander performed. After the whole show we got the chance to meet him, even though it was very short, as he was a bit tired.

But hey, at least we could say hello, and it was fun as always when you meet the fiddler. So all in all it was a super great evening.

The Eurovision Gala Night is an annual event hosted by OGAE Luxembourg to bring the spirit of Eurovision back to Luxembourg since the country last participated in the song contest in 1993. It also promotes the idea that Luxembourg should participate again sometime in the future and the earned profit goes to charity. In fact, it is our own little Eurovision Song Contest: There are contestants representing different nations who perform former ESC songs. They are then later on judged by international jury members. Of course, the audience and the public can also vote and the scoring system is the same as for the ESC.
