As a young musician, Åge Aleksandersen song that it is a long way to Royal Albert Hall. I think he ment both in distance and time.
But he is one of the few Norwegian singers that really got there:
Kygo - Firestone ft. Conrad Sewell Kygo Music
Norwegian MGP winner 2011 Stella Mwangi - Haba Haba Hujaza Kibaba - Small victories lead to big victories
Opera singer Didrik Solli-Tangen - My heart is yours wins Norwegian MPG final in 2010
Eurovision winner 2009 Alexander Rybak with Fairytale
A-Ha has a lot of hits on their videos on Youtube. One of the most famous, is "Take On Me"
