his name is didrik

And he’s going to the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest to represent Norway.

Pretty boy Didrik Solli-Tangen, 22, was virtually a nobody before the whole Norwegian Melodi Grand Prix wheel set in motion four weeks ago. In the Norwegian press articles leading to his semi-final win two weeks ago, he was referred to as Alexander Rybak’s (Melodi Grand Prix and Eurovision Song Contest 2009 winner) friend. Now, the young opera singer and current music student has stepped out of the shadow and sang his heart out to win MGP this year with “My Heart is Yours.”

Watching the show live at Oslo Spektrum last night, it was very clear that he’s the big favourite to win the entire thing. After hearing him sing live for the first time last night, I felt there was that magical something that made me go cliche and say, a star is born. And true enough, his brilliance made him stand out from the competition – from world-renowned group A1 (finishing at a respectable second place) to more established Norwegian artists. I, myself, was bewildered and spent a good amount of SMS money to send him through and win.

Now, I can’t be more excited to watch him bedazzle the whole of Europe in May as all eyes are in Oslo and at Telenor Arena, where I’ll be for the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest! Wouldn’t it be cooler if he was to wear this outfit instead? :-p

    Yes, he is cute but my gawd he can’t really carry a tune. It was a torture to hear that song of his thrice in one night. My classmates and I were a bit sour with the whole outcome.
