Alexander has become the Top favourite to win Norsk MGP on 22nd Feburary, he certainly has a terrific tune & style that would make a top 5 placing for Norway in Eurovision this year again. We hope Alex will take the Norway MGP crown this year. Although his calender will be full as in March he's excepted to join Elizabeth Andreassen's Big Spellmann tour.
Elisabeth is one half of Bobbysocks ( who won ESC 1985 ) she is known as Bettan today. She gained permission from Abba's Benny Andersson to record a Norwegian version of his classic folk song 'Klinga Mina Klockor' As in keeping with Benny's original she gathered together
a female choir of likes of Guri Schanke & Monica Hjelle for the recording.
