The choice in Norway: midterm or Justin Bieber?

Five schools in Norway are rescheduling midterm exams for an event so big they're afraid no one will show up for the tests: Justin Bieber's in town.

Norway's Ministry of Education and Research says the schools about 230 miles northwest of Oslo have put off exams to accommodate students' requests to see Bieber's concerts on April 16 and 17 in Oslo.

Minister Kristin Halvorsen says schools have the right to change dates for midterms and the ministry will not intervene.
