Norway Eurovision odds

Norway’s Alexander Rybak, who won the Eurovision Song Contest by the largest number of points in history nine years ago, will be making a comeback in May. Norwegian voters have sent him back to the huge contest that he just may take by storm again.

Rybak’s catchy new tune is called “That’s how you write a song,” but it could just as easily have been “That’s how you win a contest.” He did exactly that in Oslo Saturday night, placing first in Norway’s qualifier for the Eurovision Song Contest and winning the most support from European judges following it from abroad as well.

Many of the other contestants in Norway’s Eurovision preliminary were also veterans of the contest, including not just Rybak but also last year’s winner, Alexander Walmann and former winner Stella Mwangi, who’d teamed up as a singing duo with Alexandra Rotan. Particularly curious: once he was eliminated from the Gold Final, Aleksander Walmann has performed as a guest proposing last year's song, "Grab the moment".

Rybak, now age 30 and a seasoned entertainer, is back, with another high-energy and fun song, with violin in hand and dancers on the stage. He’s now keen to make a triumphant return to Eurovision in May, representing Norway and already winning strong signs of support in other European countries. Of the 10 countries that chose their favourites among the 10 Norwegian contestants , four landed on Rybak: Russia, the Czech Republic, Estonia and Macedonia. Rybak, the son of refugees from Belarus, won Eurovision when it was held in Moscow in 2009 and has long had fans in former Soviet bloc countries.

The now 31-year-old Rybak is not the first to compete at the ESC several times. The German ESC winner Lena tried after her victory in 2010 in the following year again her luck. Katja Ebstein went to Germany three times - but did not get past the second place. The Swiss Lys Assia was even four times. However, in ESC's history so far only one performer has managed to win twice. The Irishman Johnny Logan won the European Music Competition in 1980 with "What's Another Year" and seven years later with "Hold Me Now".

Asked whether he thinks he can win Eurovision again, Rybak told reporters after the show that “it will be difficult,” noting that “only Johnny Logan has done that, but his birthday is the same as mine. I just want to make Norway proud.” Asked who was the most nervous of his family or friends, he immediately said “Mamma.” Now she’ll likely be traveling to Portugal this spring, where this year’s Eurovision will be held in Lisbon.

The song is completely different to his previous entry “Fairytale” but is so upbeat and catchy, that you just cannot stop yourself from singing along. Alexander knows how to put on a show and we cannot wait to see this come to life on the Eurovision stage in May. However, Norway has not always enjoyed success in the contest as they also hold the record for finishing last eleven times.
