In 2006, he won Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation’s talent competition Kjempesjansen (The Big Break) with his own jazz inspired composition, Foolin'.

Alexander Rybak became a household name across Europe after winning the Grand Final of the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest for Norway with the song Fairytale.

Since his Eurovision victory, Alexander has been touring both at home and abroad and has been involved in a series of different musical projects.

He wrote and composed That’s How You Write A Song, his entry for the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest.

Lyrics of That's How You Write A Song

If you got a minute Get down your idea It might do wonders Maybe disappear Who knows Just get it down and nothing can go wrong Go find your rhythm That’s how you write a song Enjoy the small things with time they will get big Gotta find your mission A mission to pursue You know you got a talent, what ever it may be So work your magic And sing along with me Step one Believe in it and sing it all day long Step two Just roll with it That’s how you write a song Sing Shubidubi-dab-dab Shubidubi-dab-dab Shubaduba-hey Shubaduba-hey Say All day long All day long And That’s how you write a song Sing, scubidubi-dab-dab scubidubi-dab-dab Boogie-boogie-woogie! Boogie-boogie-woogie! Say All Day Long All Day Long See that’s how you write a song Step one Believe in it and sing it all day long Step two Just roll with it That’s how you write a song Step one Believe in it and sing it all day long Step two Just roll with it. That’s how you write a song Step one Believe in it and sing it all day long Step two Just roll with it. That’s how you write a song Step one Believe in it and sing it all day long Step two Just roll with it That’s how you write a song Step one Believe in it and sing it all day long Step two Just roll with it and that’s how you write a song See that`s how you write a song and That’s how you write a song
