There’s going to be a sold out house at Rådhusteatret on Sunday afternoon, and a 100 young musicians will have a memory for life. At 4 pm things will go off with a bang for the members of Nordby, Ski and Drøbak/Frogn school marching bands. This is the fifth year we will have a celebrity concert. It started with our 50 year anniversary in 2009. Back then Rein Alexander joined us. We felt it worked out so well that we wanted to have more people join us. Ski and Drøbak/Frogn joined us after.

- We’ve had visits from Ravi, Tommy Steine and Marian Aas Hansen last year, says Bård A. Granerud,...

Rybak sees a talent from afar
Sensational in every sense, the TV project of the STV channel “Singing cities” is getting ready to interest and firmly glue many viewers to the screen in its second season. Straight away the show brought the statue in the entertainment category of contest ” Tele-top-2013″ to its creators. And what a noise the participants have made! I mean, they sang a lot of songs, and the quantity of the the songs were even more during the qualifying stages. And this year we can...

Somewhere above the ocean
Far from the place we know
There is a tiny castle
All made out of snow

Nobody's ever been there
No one of whom I know
But there is a tiny castle
All made out of snow

(da, da da da da da da)
(da, da da da da da da)

Once in a while, at midnight
Something strange begins
Out comes a little snowman
Playing violin

Playing for all whose crying
Trying to heal their hearts
Once they're tired of living
Violin music starts

(da, da da da da da da)
(da, da da da da da da)

Nobody cares about him
Nobody ever will
He is a little snowman
A lonely one, and still

He's playing for all the sad ones
Trying to ease...

Years ago, when I was younger
I kinda liked a girl I knew
She was mine, and we were sweethearts
That was then
But "then", it's true

I'm in love with a fairytale
Even though it hurts
'Cause I don't care if I lose my mind
I'm already cursed

Every day, we started fighting
Every night, we fell in love
No one else
Could make me sadder
But no one else
Could lift me high above

I don't know what I was doin'
When suddenly
We fell apart

Nowadays, I cannot find her
But when I do
We'll get a brand new start

I'm in love with a fairytale
Even though it hurts
'Cause I don't care if I lose my mind
I'm already cursed

She's a fairytale, yeah!
Even though it hurts
'Cause I don't care if I lose my mind
I'm already cursed!
Suddenly, I'm famous
And people know my name
I've got a thousand girls just waiting
And therefore it's a shame

That my heart has been captured
By your funny little smile
And finally I'm happy
If only for a while

People call me stupid
For treating you like a queen
But I don't even worry
'Cause you're my unforeseen

And I hope that you'll be with me
If only in my dreams
But here you are, next to me
And you're glad
Or so it seems

And I don't know for sure
Where this is going
Still, I hope for more
And more

'Cause who would know that you
Would treat me like a boy
And I'd treat you like a girl
In this funny little world...

I won't blame the hurting on you
You left in the sweetest way
I won't say that it's you
Makin' me feel this way

It's the heart and the soul and the body and the brain
Driving me insane
But the wind and the land and the fire and the rain
All will stay the same

I, I, I
Wanna roll with the wind bringing distance to everything
I, I, I

I, I, I
Wanna sit by the fire and glance at the pouring rain
I, I, I
I, I, I

I won't claim it's all 'cause of you
I guess that I played a part
It's just that I never knew
I'd fall for you from the start

There's a hole in the heart and a picture in the frame
Driving me insane

It started with a call I stupidly answered
You said you got my number from one of the dancers
You waited right outside
You had something on mind
But then I saw your eyes
Your crazy eyes

Now you got me into something very sick and twisted
An evil kind of game I didn't know existed
You traveled overseas
To terrorize me
But I don't understand
Why can't you let me be?

Believe me when I say, you stupid fool
You're scaring me to death, that's not cool
Why won't you leave me alone?
Just leave me alone
You're crazy, leave me alone

I beg of you to stop and think this through
It's time to start up playing with someone...

Singing oah, I love you, Moa
You're way too young for me
But I don't mind

Never mind what your girlfriends say
Deep inside, I'm quite okay
I may have fooled around once or twice
But I really need you

And it's not like I'm the only guy
Oh, I know how you make them cry
So let's start by being friends
And let this friendship never end

I knew you years ago
What I was, I don't know
But let's just take it slow

Singing oah, I love you, Moa
You're way too young for me
But I don't mind
Don't say maybe, just be my lady
No need to hesitate
'Cause you'll be fine, yeah!

So tell me what I want to hear
No, wait, let's just leave...

Cool celebrities should pick on the ones further down the hierarchy. Therefore we let Morten Ramm from “Torsdagskveld fra Nydalen» nag on the fiddle-Jack Alexander Rybak.

How many girls have you actually “said hi to”?
- It is not few enough that I can keep the count, and there are not many enough that it might be fun to keep counting.

You’ve done all that an artist should not do in the media. Why?
- I was overwhelmed by the fact that people liked me, but eventually it was more important to be understood than to be popular.

But people still not understand...
