Last weekend the 2009 Eurovision winner Alexander Rybak and the amazing Paula Seling, the number 3 at the 2010 ESC, visited Belgium on the occasion of the Closing Ceremony of the 2012 Antwerp Pride.

During this concert also other main stars appeared such as 2Unlimited and Kate Ryan. However during the concert from the reactions of the public it became very clear that the biggest star of the event was Alexander Rybak whilst Paula Seling was the biggest surprise to the audience because of her great vocal abilities which were very impressive!

After the concert both Paula Seling and Alexander Rybak gave a number of interviews to the national and international press present. On Monday both artists were a special guest at the very popular afternoon show ‘Studio TVL’ on Belgian channel TV-Limburg where they performed their duet ‘I’ll show you’ next to Alexander’s winning song from Eurovision. However it was revealed during the tv-show that both artists keep the door open for Eurovision 2013. Whilst Alexander said he is interested to return to the 2013 Eurovision as a composer (so not as a performer), Paula left the door open to return as an artist. She stated that many fans had asked for her return to Eurovision. Alexander stated in his pleasant way that you should never doubt or discuss the opinion of a Eurovision fan!
