Norway bring Ryback back. Initially seems a smart move but he doesn't improve with keeping.

An initially quite brilliant-looking move by Norway! Bring back the very talented and screen-friendly Alexander Rybak, a virtual violin and then a real one and a catchy number about how to write a song.

This is another winner except for one thing - it does not improve with listening. So if you have heard it once or twice already the novelty and interest will fade rapidly and I wonder whether the televoters and jurors will react, some of whom will have heard it a hundred times. Top Ten chance, for sure, but it also reminds me of the UK entry a few years back which had a similar vibe and that didn't go down so well. I don't think Euro does jazz unless it's way out..
