Eurovision 2009 winner Alexander Rybak - watch "Fairytale" video

Alexander Rybak

It's taken me awhile to get to the subject of Eurovision this year. What prompted me today is that I just heard 2009 winner Alexander Rybak and his Eurovision winning song "Fairytale" on the radio.

Since I've been living in England, I discovered the Eurovision Song Contest and haven't missed a year yet. I love watching the contest for the humor (some die hards may not see it), the costumes and the all around entertainment. With a very open mind when watching, there are even some gems of songs and singers amongst the rough.

Watch Alexander Rybak - "Fairytale":

One of those gems was Alexander Rybak from Norway. When he started singing that night in Moscow, I wasn't sure at first, but the more the song went on, I knew we might be on to a winner. And sure enough - it was, and for me, the song still is! Even charting in the UK - and listening to it on the radio is a treat.

"Fairytale" is a great song. You can feel the energy and the passion, the instrumentation is superb - and I just found out that Alexander wrote and composed it. Excellent, even better now. A well deserved winner.

So this means the 2010 Eurovision contest will be held in Norway.

That would be an adventure - going to see the show live...
