The girls were first one on stage, but after the first song Alexander appeared. The applause had hardly died down before Rybak began to play on the violin a melody familiar to his fans. The audience was especially pleased how the sound of the violin was mixed with the elements of rock and roll. The whole performance was accompanied by a dance group and the pianist Mikhail Orgesh.
The winner of “Eurovision-2009” was in a constant contact with the audience between the songs. Alexander admitted to one of the girls that she is very similar to his former romantic interest, and when he got to know that her name is Natalia too, he jumped down from the stage and danced with this lady. The audience took it very warm.
At the first row the fan zone for the most active ones was organized: the girls were waving the flag of Norway, where the hero of the occasion was portrayed, and they didn’t hesitate to stand up during the performances. All in the audience stood up, when the final composition “Fairytale” started, which once brought victory to Alexander.
