Hungary to select internally, songs welcome

Posted

Song writers, composers and artists can send in songs to MTV until the 2nd of February. "A selection committee, made up of musicians, radio- and television editors and other industry professionals will then decide who will represent Hungary at the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest," Prónay-Zakar explained.

Mid-February, the Hungarian public and international Eurovision Song Contest fans will find out who will represent the country in Moscow. Prónay-Zakar: "We have plans to present the song during a special television show, but no concrete information is available yet." 

Hungary took part in the Eurovision Song Contest between 1994 and 1998. Despite a successful 4th place for Friderika Bayer with Kinek Mondjam El Vétkeimet in 1994, it would take until Hungary's return to the Eurovision Song Contest in 2005 to get a top-10 position as the group NOX finished 5th in the Semi-Final. Last year's representative Csézy finished 16th in the second Semi-Final.
