Norway wins the 54th Eurovision Song Contest

Rybak is 23 years old, ethnic Belarussian who grew up outside Oslo, had been the pre-tournament favorite and he amazed the crowd with his singing and violin playing in the final at the Olympic stadium. Rybak scored a record 387 points, beating Iceland with 218 points and Azerbaijan with 207 points. It was the third time Norway has won the competition, one of the most watched television shows in Europe every year.
      In an interview with Reuters before the competition started Rybak said the song was based on a traditional Norwegian fairytale but with a modern twist. "Now Norway is really on the map," said an overjoyed Rybak at the news conference after Eurovision.
      Russian singer Anastasia Prikhodko got the 11-th place and only 91 points.
      The Israeli singers Noa and Mira Avad got the 16 th place.
      Moscow spent $42 million on the five-day event, making it the most expensive competition in Eurovision's history.
