According to NRK, presenters and performers emphasised China must change, and allow freedom of speech.

“We hope that either Liu Xiaobo or someone from his family will able to come to Oslo in the near future to receive the prize and the money”, said actor Denzel Washington, who co-hosted the event with actor Anne Hathaway.

Sivert Høyem, ex singer of Norwegian rock band Madrugada, opened the show with the song “Prisoner of the road”, which was originally written especially for the Norwegian Refugee Council’s successful telethon in October.

Swedish Robin, the Indian musician A.R Rahman and the British funkpop group Jamiroquai were also among the stars invited to perform.

However, it was 67-year-old singer and pianist (“A Nice Boy Like Me) Barry Manilow who stole the show, with his performance including such famous songs as “Cannot smile without you”, “Mandy” and “Copacabana”.

The concert ended with Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror”, when all the artists and contributors participated.
