artists from the 2008 nobel peace prize concert

I totally forgot that the Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony and Concert were staged in Oslo last week. And like last year, I missed watching the concert this time too. But thanks to a Robyn spotting at paolosavi’s blog, here is a picking of the artists that graced the stage where the 2008 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to former Finnish president Martti Ahtisaari “for his important efforts, on several continents and over more than three decades, to resolve international conflicts.”

Robyn (With Every Heartbeat and a brilliant version of Be Mine – make sure to watch the second half of the clip)

Marit Larsen (If A Song Could Get Me You)

Jason Mraz (A Beautiful Mess)

Il Divo (Adagio)

Diana Ross (Do You Know Where You’re Going To and Ain’t No Mountain High Enough)
