Alexander Rybak als Conchita Wurst � und das im russischen TV

In einer Unterhaltungssendung tauschte der norwegische Schnuckel seine Geige gegen Bart und Fummel. Kurz vor dem Eurovision Song Contest aus Wien strahlt Vorjahressiegerin Conchita Wurst noch immer Wellen der Toleranz nach Europa aus. Sie selbst etwa am Sonntag mit einem Video zum Internationalen Tag gegen Homophobie und Transphobie.

Und am gleichen Tag indirekt durch einen �berraschenden Auftritt im russischen Fernsehen. In dem „Anti-Homo-Propaganda“-Land hatte Wursts Teilnahme im letzten Jahr f�r fast so viele negative Reaktionen gesorgt wie im Heimatland der Drag Queen, dann w�hlten sie die russischen TV-Zuschauer bei der �bertragung des Finales allerdings auf ihren dritten Platz (das Ergebnis wurde, wie bei den deutschen Zuschauern, durch die Jury ruiniert). „Gayropa“ scheint tats�chlich unstoppable. Ein weiterer Beweis: Am Sonntag trat Alexander Rybak, der norwegische Gewinner des ESC 2009 in Moskau („Fairytale“), im russischen Fernsehen auf � ohne Geige, daf�r mit Bart und, mit Verlaub, Beule:

In der Show „One to One“ des Staatssenders Rossija 1, die auf dem Endemol-Format „Your Face Sounds Familiar“ (ARD-Version: „Sing wie dein Star“) basiert, treten Prominente wie bei einer Art „Mini Playback Show“ verkleidet als andere K�nstler auf, singen zugleich deren Songs live mit eigener Stimme. In einem Einspieler vor der Verwandlung hatte Rybak Conchita noch mit warmen Worten verteidigt, im Publikum, in dem weitere Conchita-Lookaliks sa�en, kam seine Version von „Rise Like a Phoenix“ gut an. Und auch die Jury war begeistert: „Brillante Arbeit von dir, Alexander“, meinte eine Jurorin, „Du hast eine gute, sehr gute Conchita gegeben“, ein Kollege. „Wenn wir Verka Serduchka lieben, warum sollen wir Conchita ablehnen?“ Ein weiterer Juror meinte: „Das Schlimmste, was du h�ttest machen k�nnen, w�re eine Karikatur auf Conchita, wenn man all die Diskussionen bedenkt, die Conchita bei uns in Russland hervorgebracht hat. Du aber hast das mit keiner einzigen Bewegung zu einer Parodie gemacht. Du hast wie ein echter Profi gearbeitet!“ Die sozialen Netzwerke sind ebenfalls begeistert: „W�re doch cool, wenn Conchita erneut in Russland siegt“, meinte jemand. Bis dahin muss Alexander Rybak allerdings noch einige Runden meistern. Bereits in einer vorherigen Sendung war er im Fummel zu sehen, freilich etwas traditioneller und ohne Bart:

Zudem unter anderem als Dima Bilan� und, weniger �berzeugend, sogar als Gloria Gaynor:

Alexander Rybak about our people, the gay pride parade and a crazy fan.

Personal life Alexander Rybak, children

At the contest “Eurovision 2009” in one of his many interviews Alexander Rybak (born 13.05.1986, Minsk, Belarus) rashly expressed the opinion that this contest is kind of gay parade. Of course, then e-mail the singer began to receive letters of love content. For a long time the pop star had to convince the representatives of sexual minorities that his orientation itself is quite traditional, he likes girls and is planning to have children, but still in the media you can find articles where gays consider it “their”.

The popularity of the singer is not a guarantee of happiness. Personal life Alexander Rybak proof of this. It is known that his famous song “Fairytale”, which brought victory in the contest “Eurovision 2009”, was written in the Wake of unrequited love of a musician. With the girl who became his Muse, and they broke up in 2004, but the young man kept reverent feelings for former lover, a violin player Ingrid Berg Mehus. After his victory in the competition, he tried to recover with her, but Ingrid used it for their own PR. Realizing this, the singer broke up with her.

Dare I Say Lyrics

Far from the placeWhere I’m writing this songThere is a girlTo whom my heart belongsShe doesn’t knowThat I’m thinking of herBut againThat’s not the point She makes me gladJust by being alrightThough I would wishThat just for one nightShe would come backAnd again we’d be friendsLike those timesWhen love never ends Watching your pictureI feel I’m with youAnd your hand is flirting with mineMaybe it’s pointlessBut what can I do?Knowing you’re one of a kind HonestlyI know I’ll be fine But dare I sayYou are amazing in every wayAnd would you mindIf we woke up with each other each day? But then I remember that I’m just a guyAnd still I keep dreaming of youCause that’s all I can do You said you loved himThe last time we metPlease tell your boyfriendThat I’m not afraidI know the differenceBetween right and wrongBut againThat’s not the point Sometimes I sleepWith a smile on my faceCause dreaming of youMakes me gladAnd then I wake upWhile I’m still in my dreamThe sweet kissThat we never had HonestlyHow foolish is that? But dare I sayYou are amazing in every wayAnd would you mindIf we woke up with each other each day? But then I remember that I’m just a guyAnd still I keep dreaming of youCause that’s all I can do (Dare I say?OohWould you mind?) But dare I sayYou are amazing in every wayAnd would you mindIf we woke up with each other each day? But then I remember that I’m just a guy
