Norwegian Grammy Awards Winners 2012

Saturday night the Norwegian Grammy Awards 2012 was held in Oslo. The most prestigious price, ‘Årets Spellemann’ (Musician of the Year) was awarded to Jarle Bernhoft for his work both on a national and international level. 

(Click here to see him perform his song “C’mon Talk” on The Ellen Show.) 

– I believe the jury awarded me with this prize because I am ‘a genuine musician‘. I often hold concerts completely alone. And this year has been absolutely fantastic. I only can say ‘thank you’, says Bernhodt to NRK.

– A bit of a chock

The jury said that Bernhoft the past year has been a huge creative and commercial success in Norway, and that he is very skilled in a variety of musical genres.

– The first prize I was somewhat prepared for, but this… I am very proud, said a mildly shocked Bernhoft from the stage in the National Theatre in Oslo when he received the trophy as a proof that he is Musician of the Year, just minutes after he was named best male artist in 2011.

– A thousand, thousand, thousand, thousand thanks. Many thanks, he said.

When last year’s winners, ‘Carpe Diem’, handed him the trophy Bernhoft thought for a moment that he had broken the gramophone that adorns the coveted trophy.

– I’m kind of in shock that something on the gramophone actually is loose, and that it should be loose. I am a little afraid that I will destroy the trophy, as DDE (Norwegian band) did a few years ago, says Bernhoft to NRK.
