Alexander Rybak has had a busy week in Düsseldorf, learning a new profession.
"I begun on Sunday, and started with the Norwegian singer Stella. She's very easy to interview," Rybak says to Eurovision.tv.
He is on location as a special reporter for the Norwegian broadcaster NRK.
"I'm doing interviews every day. First and foremost, I tried to help the Norwegian artist by taking her to the spotlight. Since I did an interview with her, she had great attention in Russia, for example."
His efforts didn't do the trick, however, since Norway's Stella Mwangi didn't qualify to the Grand Final.
Alexander Rybak has learned that the reporter profession can be a challenging one.
"It's quite hard to run back and forth. But at the same time, I don't have any pressure on me here. I've only said that I'm going to do as much as I can manage," he says.
And he already has a philosophy for how to perform the best job possible.
"I always try to use the energy I can see. If people are calm, I'm doing a calm interview, and so on," he says.
