Johan Sara and me in the cottage before the performance.
 Johan Sara with space-suit for the occasion. 

I left the party after the TV-show debut at about 12 so I would have time to sleep before I had to rush back to the Airport and catch the early flight to Oslo and then Tromsø and Alta, to be back in Alta in time for the performance Johan Sara jr. and me had been preparing for Pæskatun during the Borealis vinterfestival and Finnmarksløpet. Eirik Tandberg and Trond Strifeldt held a lecture about the atars and astrofysics or something like that, and after the lecure Johan Sara and me would have a performance outdoors on the snowstage after the lecture. It was very windy and cold before our performance, and we were starting to think that we had to do the performance inside, but mystically the weather changed to better during our performance before the snow started again, and the wind started blowing again. Johan said this always happens, its like the weather knows when to be nice to him on outdoor performances. Very good! The performance was very strange for me. It was not very much singing in my behalf, like I usually do. Johan wanted me to improvise with sounds and noises, and I tried my best, but its very new to me do to that sort of thing, so it was challenging.


I´m being al nervuos in the dressing room just before my second appearance. 
Yes! I didn´t not make a fool out of myself on national TV! That is a great thing to know! If anything had gone wrong I would have felt terrible, but everything went great! If you did not have the chance to see it on TV you can watch it here:


I am about 45:00 into the show.

What a unforgettable night that was! So many important and famous people gathered in one place! It was a bit of a crazy night for me, and when I greeted the King of Norway, it all got a little overwhelming for me!

Well, as you maybe know, this show was put on to celbrate the 100 years of womens right to vote, so it was a huge thing, and alot of people where involved in it. The prime minitster of Norway, Jens Stoltenberg opened the show with a speach about wimen in his life. I got to meet and greet alot of politicians and artists while I was there: Gro Harlem Brundtland, Ingrid Bjørnov, Kari Slåttsveen, Noora Noor, Tuva Syversen, Eir Inderhaug, Inga Marthe Thorkildsen, Aili Kestitalo of course, Kirsti Kolle Grøndahl, Wenche Myhre, Anne Grethe Paus, Kaci Kullman Five and many more!

This week has been a lifechanging week for me. Strong words maybe, but it feels like it.
When they first called me before christmas to ask if I would join this huge event on the 8th of march -a live concert full of Norwegian celebrities on wimens rights day- I didnt believe it at first. It just seemed to good to be true. I didn´t dare to tell anyone because I was afraid they would laugh and say it was a joke or that I had misunderstood. But Nora Ibsen called me, and asked if I wanted to sing and joik and be a part of a HUGE TV-production for NRK1!

This is the biggest milestone in my life. Not only my carriere as a singer, but in my life. I have been working towards and dreamt about this all my life! I have a symphonyorchestra from Kristiansand and Stavanger with dirigent Halldis Rønning. She kicks ass! That orchestra kicks ass! I mean, this is a lifetime experience!  Not every artist gets the chance to do what I am about to do now! I have deep gratitude to Anne Røthing at NRK who actually got me in this show!
