#Quote
1I can't imagine what it feels like for Simon to get up every morning, knowing he has to criticize people for publicity. He doesn't care about anyone else as long as he gets all the attention. [on American Idol-judge Simon Cowell]
#Fact
1He and the second winner of Norwegian Idol, Kjartan Salvesen are left-handed. Both are also expecting babies at the start of 2006 with their girlfriends.
2Left his band Fenrik Lane
3Broke up with girlfriend since 1994, Kristine Jacobsen. They were never married, but they had two children together. (January 2005)
4On January 17th 2004 he and his fiancé suffered minor neck injuries when a car they were sitting in was involved in a chain collision in Sandviken, Norway.
5After winning World Idol he flew home to the seaside city of Bergen (Norway). There he was greeted at the airport by thousands of hysterical fans, a marching band, the city's mayor and other assorted dignitaries. Later that same day he was congratulated via phone by Norway's Prime Minister.
6After he performed U2's "Beautiful Day" on "World Idol" the Australian judge, Ian Dickson, told him: "You're one hell of a marketing challenge because you've got the voice of an angel but you look like a Hobbit. If we were looking for Middle Earth Idol I think you'd be an absolutely hands-down winner. But for World Idol I think it's going to be really tricky. What I saw was terrific." Pete Waterman, the British judge, said: "You gave us a superb performance." The dreaded Simon Cowell said: "If this competition was on radio rather than on TV you'd walk it. We've allowed a lot of ugly people to become recording artists. Under normal circumstances you'd never get a recording contract." But then he added: "You have an astonishingly good voice. I think you could be the dark horse to win this!"
