Thank you Hungary

Following yesterday’s announcement about Georgia’s dishonourable choices concerning the forthcoming Eurovision,  I really wanted not only to thank but to celebrate MTVA, the Hungarian broadcaster also competing in this year’s contest, for making the choices, that every broadcaster should do.

Indeed, after publishing further details about their national selection A Dal, I really felt glad that some countries still take part in this musical and cultural contest in order to celebrate THEIR OWN CULTURE AND LANGUAGE, once again like the contest really should.

This year, the A Dal competition, is not only composed of 10 more entries than last year’s competition was (allowing the promotion of even more artists and Hungarian music in general) but it has been decided that all of them should be performed in the national language.

I have never been a hardcore defendant of the national language things and rule that the EBU dropped in 1999, but I am afraid that year after year national language appear to be very important considering the wrong turns and directions some countries are taking.

Finally, look at the the list of the songwriters competing there ! Any “sson” name in it ? Any non-hungarian sounding name in it, even ?

I am infinitely grateful and thankful to MTVA for these decision because it clearly make us understand that if the Eurovision contest has a future it’s MAINLY thanks to broadcasters like them, and though I haven’t heard any of the songs yet, I can already tell that they’ve gained much more respect from me by proposing these organisation, format and rules than quite a few countries ever did, with all their past entries combined.
