We study the strong asymptotics of orthogonal polynomials with respect to a measure of the type dμ/2π+j=1Ajδ(zzk), where μ is a positive measure on the unit circle Γ satisfying the Szegö condition and {zj}j=1 are fixed points outside Γ. The masses {Aj}j=1 are positive numbers such that j=1Aj<+. Our main result is the explicit strong asymptotic formulas for the corresponding orthogonal polynomials.
