Battle of the Stars finalist Alexandra Rotan: Does not receive KEiiNO salary abroad
The recent silver winner reveals that the band project is running a deficit internationally. Next autumn, she will start a solo career.
This weekend, Alexandra Rotan congratulated her “Battle of the Stars” rival Bjørn Tomren on the victory – apparently just as jubilantly happy, after ten weeks of exposure in prime time on NRK.
Exposure is also a key word for the band she is known as a third of, the Melodi Grand Prix institution KEiiNO.
In a recent application to the Norwegian Cultural Council for the Statens kunstnerstipend, Rotan says that the band does not make money outside the home country’s borders.
