Wird Ungarn disqualifiziert?


Ungarn - Magdi Rúzsa hat offenbar gegen Regel 1 des Regelwerks vom Eurovision Song Contest verstoßen und ihren Song bereits vor dem 1. Oktober 2006 veröffentlicht. Esctoday und Oikotimes berichten, dass Magdi ihren Wettbewerbstitel "Unsubstantial blues" bereits im Februar 2006 in der ungarischen Version "Aprócska blues" während der Idols-Show in Ungarn - Megasztar - vor Publikum gesungen hat.

Magdis Plattenfirma schreibt dazu im Auszug auf Esctoday folgendes:

"This link was recorded during the qualifying hearing/audition of the local Pop Idol Contest, Megasztar last year. Magdi was singing for 42 seconds, one verse and refrain that time, as there was nothing else from her very own composed idea. When we signed our record deal she wanted to finish this idea, and that is how she and her producer Gábor Závodi have created the song Aprócska Blues. According to the rules of ESC, the nominated entry song, can not be released or publicly performed before 1st October. As the album featuring the Hungarian version was released on 28th November 2006 (on Magdi’s birthday), we match this condition.

If anyone doubts that the song wasn’t publicly performed before the above date, I need to draw the attention again to the fact, that it was not the ready song, but the idea from which the song was based on. Not to mention that this was in Hungarian and English lyrics were written this March to the song, which has become the official Hungarian entry. This song was released on promotional single today!"


Inwiefern der kleine umstrittene Auftritt von Magdi bei Megasztar auf TV2 in Ungarn für eine mögliche Disqualifikation beim Eurovision Song Contest sorgen könnte ist derzeit noch unklar. Ein Statement der EBU gibt es noch nicht. Sollte es Neuigkeiten geben werden wir hier natürlich davon berichten.
