Although I ran out of time, I managed to speak with three members of pop group a1.

Before yesterday’s concert in Oslo, I met the members of the boy band a1.  A packed Vulkan Arena was filled with fans eager to see their idols on stage.

During my time backstage, I spoke to Mark Read, Christian Ingebrigtsen, and Paul Marazzi. All of them are amazing gentlemen. Paul, however, is the real star of this interview.

When I was about to ask Paul my first question, I realized I had run out of time!

Paul was only able to say “thank you” – which is probably more than I deserve, given I had to end the interview before he had the chance to speak. Paul, I will make it up to you!
