Alexander Rybak is taking a much needed week-long break from his work to be present at the 57th Eurovision Song Contest as a guest of Ictimai TV. Just before he made a guest appearance at the second semi-final on Thursday, Alexander spoke to esctoday.com’s Edward Montebello about his new song, his feeling about his country’s song this year and his favourite entries.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined esctoday.com in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
