Participant: Haldor Lægreid Song: On my own Writer(s): Ole Henrik Antonsen, Tom-Steinar Hanssen & Jørgen Olsen Composer(s): Ole Henrik Antonsen, Tom-Steinar Hanssen
The 30 years old Haldor Lægreid loves Musicals since his childhood. 1989 he had the chance to study musical in Gothenburg (Sweden). He played the role of Judas in “Jesus Christ Superstar”. Later he went to Germany and played in different musicals like “Cats”, “West Side Story” and “Les Miserables”. In Denmark he appeared in “Atlantis” and then he moved back to Norway. There he also took the floor in the Oslo Spectrum with “Rent” and “Hair”.
Surely his song for Eurovision “On My Own” sounds like a song from a musical. It’s a wonderful ballad with international standards and belongs to the best songs of this years’ contest. Even if his voice doesn’t get all the high notes especially at the end of the song.
This big question is: will the Europeans vote for him?
