|Bjarte Ylvisåker in Spektrum|
|Name||Bjarte Urheim Ylvisåker|
|Birthday||26. July 1989|
Bjarte Ylvisåker is the youngest Ylvisaker brother. He was born in Bergen, Norway and spent a short amount of time in Africa as a young child. He participated in a few TV shows when he was quite young, and did quite well. However, he has said that he is not interested in show business [needs a source] and spent several years in the United States training as a helicopter pilot.
I Will Never Be A Star
Although Bjarte hasn't formally pursued a show business career, he debuted his own song, I Will Never Be A Star, at the first Expensive Jacket Tour show on 28 February 2014 at Oslo Spektrum, and toured off and on with his brothers for the remainder of the year.
I Will Never Be A Star became a Number 1 download on Cambodia iTunes in December of 2014, and Bjarte won a 2015 Nordic Music Video Best Artist Performance award for the song, along with director (and frequent Ylvis collaborator) Ole Martin Hafsmo. Much to the amusement of his brothers Bård and Vegard, Bjarte's first name was misspelled as Bjarne on the prize.
Stories from Norway
Bjarte played supporting roles in several episodes of Stories from Norway, the "investigative musical" series that aired in 2018 on TVNorge. Here he is playing a bar singer with his brother Vegard in the Petter Northug drunk-driving episode:
