Last Saturday, Norway's Alexander Rybak performed on stage during Virtous, the national selection for Eurovision Young Musicians 2018. Birgitta Elisa Oftestad won the competition and has the honour of representing her country this summer in Edinburgh, United Kingdom. Alexander had some advice for young Birgitta: "Listen to your teacher to gain professional weight, be patient, and do not forget to cultivate your specialties. And of course, always write down your ideas!"
This also reflects in Alexander's song for the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest That's how you write a song: "My song is about believing in your talent, and writing down your ideas. You never know what comes from the smallest idea!"
