Alexander Rybak performing at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in 2009.
Alexander performed at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert 2009 in Oslo Spektrum, Norway, in honor of the President of the United States Barack Obama, who got the Nobel Peace Prize 2009. The concert was hosted by Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith.
“Fairytale” was rearranged especially for this performance.
Alexander accidentally dropped his violin on the floor, and it got out of tune. This video shows the performance corrected by NRK, by using the sound from the dress rehearsal. This was also used when the show later was broadcast in several countries.
