Eurovision winner Alexander Rybak will be visiting Malta for the very first time. Sources close to esctoday.com revealed that the Norwegian winner will make a short visit to the island in which he is likely to give some interviews and perform on local TV stations.

The twenty-four year old singer is expected to land in Malta next Friday and will stay for two days. The Belarussian born star will meet the local press and reliable sources state that he will also perform in a private function. Rybak’s visit was kept on a low profile. It will certainly give a taste of the Mediterrenean island, highly fevered by the Eurovision Song Contest.

The 2009 Eurovision winner is still enjoying success as according to the official Nokia Ovi Music chart his wining entry Fairytale became the most downloaded Eurovision winner. Fairytale managed to surpass the 1974 classic winning song Waterloo by ABBA.

His Fairytale achieved another record in the history of the Eurovision Song Contest. The top song in Moscow received most points than any other winner in the contest. Alexander Rybak won last year’s Eurovision Song Contest with 387 points.
