He’s the Norwegian pop star known for turning up the volume at the party with his infectious dance numbers. And, as we saw during Eurovision 2021 in Rotterdam, TIX is also a romantic who believes in the power of love, especially when it comes to his queen Efendi.

Last night at the MGP 2022 afterparty, he spoke with our correspondent Anne about his ongoing love affair with Azerbaijan’s Eurovision 2021 contestant. He revealed that the “Mata Hari” singer was meant to attend the final of Melodi Grand Prix, but unfortunately she couldn’t secure a visa in time.

“I’m going to give you a scoop, OK,” he says. “Tonight Efendi was actually supposed to come here. We bought the plane tickets but we couldn’t get the visa in time. She was supposed to be on stage with me.”

“But we’ve been FaceTiming so she’s basically been here all evening.”

The “Fallen Angel” hitmaker also says that he will return to Melodi Grand Prix in the future.

“I feel so at home here. I’m just a huge Eurovision fan. I’m going to stay at this arena for years and years and years I bet.”

Are you excited to hear that their romance is still on the boil? Do you hope that they can reunite in the months ahead? Let us know in the comments box down below!

anyways TIX qualified because of this romance, Azerbaijan gave him like 10pts and Croatia stayed out of the final as a result even though Croatia was in the top 10 of both jury voting and televoting.

not sure if this story is true, they had like months to prepare for the visa and all stuff. Also Efendi had deactivated her IG?

She did deactivate her IG. I guess she got tired of all the anti-Armenian propaganda on her IG.

She did have a gig in Baku last night, how come she could have attended MGP 2022 instead. So fake love story, sorry!!!

I’m sure that if the story is true, then she would have known for some time that she didn’t get a visa in time and maybe the opportunity for a concert in Baku showed up instead?

On another note, there’s actual video footage in the Norwegian media of them facetiming last night, so I guess that part of the story is true. And either way, if the love story never happened, they may just have become really good friends and I personally don’t see any harm in that.

When you make pr stunts, you also need to know when to stop them. Nobody cares, you both didn’t do well in Eurovision even though you produced a whole documentary about your “love”, move on with your careers

Honestly if they’re keeping it up in 2022 it might actually be somewhat genuine because it’s of no real use to them to pretend at this point, especially since all they’ll get is anger from Albina’s fans.

Or it might be that’s it’s the only reason they can stay relevant in the Eurovision fandom. People still make efendix videos which is quite concerning

The amount of conspiracy theorists in the blog chat is hilarious. If the love between Tix and Efendi was actually fake, they would’ve broken up long ago and Tix wouldn’t have started learning Azerbaijani.

it was a cute flirt but nothing more. Both live far away from each other and dont speak the same language.

Tix is literally learning Azerbaijani and when he knows the language good enough to communicate he plans on moving to Azerbaijan.

It is either love or a one-sided love from Tix’ side. Surely not fake love.

How do you know he is learning Azerbaijani? I mean it would be cool but I haven’t seen any evidence besides maybe his comments from the times of Eurovision

Holy ass there is so much hate here, people need to get something betetr to do. I just hope a lot of cool things can come from this. Would have been cool to see her if she was there! We already had Tenfjord represenying Greece and 2/3 of We ARe Domi to represent Czechia. The MGP this year was so nice in these Corona times, especially with live audience again. GL to the two and hopefully we will get a lot of amazing music from these people looking forward!

People can’t understand the differences between reality television shows and reallife. They are so delusional that they thing that any love within a music competition is fake love.

She couldn’t get a visa in like 9 months they’ve known each other, and let’s be honest, MGP is almost at the same time every year? Please, gold digger alert will beep here and fast!

If he brings anything like he brought last night at MGP, I’m excited. A new style for TiX, nei, Andreas maybe? 🙂

i also heard Ulrikke is intented to come back next year i’m sure she has a great track because she announced it that early and she waited so long (until she found the right one). Not a fan of her tbh but i really expect her to win MGP and do so good at Esc

Oh god, please don’t. He also talked about retiring as a “musician” a while back, so who knows. I, for one, don’t want to see any more of TIX and his annoying groupies in the contest.
