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.

Working every day

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.

A difficult profession

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.
