VG Nett.) Tooji Keshtkar ( 24 ) won a superior victory at MGP 2012. Backstage, he got advice by Eurovision-winner Alexander Rybak. VG meets Tooji the day after he won MGP with 155.480 votes ahead of both Nora Foss al-Jabri, Bobby Bare & Petter Øien and Plumbo.
” It hasn´t dawned on me yet. Everything is just surreal. I couldn´t sleep last night, even though I tried very hard. The head was just filled with pictures from the night – Mom, who is cheering, the fans who are screaming and my name, being announced”, says Tooji, who sung the song “Stay”.

Rybak made the audience join on “Haba Haba”
Rybak included the winner-song of last year in the intermission-act at the MGP-final.
Stella Mwangi chose to be with her family instead of at Oslo Spektrum, during the Melodi Grand Prix-final Saturday evening, after her father died in a car-crash last week.
Instead, it was the Grand Prix- favorite Aleksander Rybak, who stood for the intermission-act at Oslo Spektrum.

Danish www.dr.dk announces, that Rybak will be guest-artist in the MGP-final in Gigantium in Ålborg this Saturday. In addition, the 25-year-old will have influence on which song, that wins. New this year is, that the danish MGP- team includes juries from the countries who won the last 4 years: Russia, Norway, Germany and Aserbajdsjan.
