Alexander Rybak set to return in Eurovision?
VALLETTA, MALTA – 2009 ESC winner Alexander has been in Malta these days for a non announced visit. Accordingly to his facebook and twitter page he visited the Russian International Boarding School in the town of Bugibba where he gave a concert some years ago.
However more interesting was a photo he posted with Maltese singer Franklin Calleja, two times participants at the Maltese Selections for Eurovision. It looks they have been working in the studio on some material. With the deadline for Malta Eurovision 2015 approaching it is rumoured that Alexander Rybak would set his returnal to Eurovision in Malta as a composer for Franklins entry. However there was no mentionning in Rybaks posting towards Eurovision.
It is thus unclear what the final outcome will be. Even Rybaks promoter in Malta, Olivier Vanhoutte, didnt confirm any submission to the Maltese selection. ‘As Alexander stated already in the past he wants to work in the future more as a composer. This doesnt mean specifically Eurovision but can be also other projects.’ accordingly to Olivier.
We will have to wait to see when there will be announcements of the selected songs for Malta Eurovision if Rybak is returning to Eurovision as a composer. In the meanwhile you can see Franklin Calleja’s entry from the Malta Eurovision 2014
