Do not worry.

Towards the end, as Melby and Farley charged towards the goal each carrying a giant 'turkey' on their heads, things went wrong for Melby.

The famous broadcaster actually moved forward, but stumbled and fell to the ground.

– The competitive instinct and enthusiasm took me away. I gave it everything I had and then some. I tried hard and fell to my knees. And the “You'd rather not,” Melby told VG at a press conference last month.

She then confided that she had a “fracture” in her knee.

On Thursday, Melby told VG that she was still in pain.

– Of course, the knee is still cracked, but a lot has healed and I have good follow-up from a doctor and a physiotherapist, so things will probably go well, she confirms.

– At the time, I was probably so full of adrenaline that I didn't fully realize how much pain he was in.

Melby explains that she doesn't want the final to be about her knee.

“It's been a very interesting few weeks, and I had to stand in the final with Henrik, who I fell in love with. So we actually have to take this injury as a bracket.”

For his part, Farley expressed great relief on television that he wasn't nearby when Milby went down.

“Otherwise I'd be afraid I'd put a leg on her or something,” he says.

– It was a little hard standing there in the confetti because we still hadn't figured out if she really hurt herself, or if it was just a trip. He explained to VG that there were somewhat mixed feelings.

– What do you think of Melby joking that she would have won if she hadn't fallen?

– It's hard to say, it's completely up to the question. I think we both agree that I'm a little faster than her, but the question is, would I have been faster? Adequate. I've thought about waiting when she gets stuck so we can start running at the same time, but that might be a little weird too.

Prize: Han Krug sang Henrik Varley.  Markus Nebbi tuned the guitar.

Farley's prize was Han Krug's (67-year-old) appearance in the original cloak from the 1976 film Journey to the Christmas Star.

Krug was 19 years old when she played the lead role of Sonya in the classic film.

The veteran singer performed “Sonja's Song to the julestjernen”, accompanied by Nyby on guitar. It would have been difficult to find a more appropriate song for this occasion.

– He was very nice Little “It's unnerving,” Farley says of the intimate concert, adding:

– Maybe one thing I've learned after being a part of this is that singing face to face – with eye contact – is something that stresses me out. the I didn't know before, he says and laughs.
