Up next in our first semi-final is Hungary! Since it’s debut in 1994, Hungary has not done fairly well. It received 4th place in 1994, but since then it was not until they received 5th place that Hungary did decently. Last year Hungary sent the amazing András to sing the song Running which was about domestic abuse.
Continuing their success from last year with a song about ending violence this year they’re sending Boggie to sing Wars for Nothing. Boggie has been singing since 2013 and became very popular when she sang the song Nouveau Parfum in a music video in which she was actively photoshopped. The message of the song was that humans are not the products and that others will not change who we are. Through this fame, Boggie is hoping her new song about Wars for no purpose will garner a lot of support.
The song itself is really great. The music video itself doesn’t do it proper justice. I think when it goes on stage she will do wonderfully. I don’t think she will win as usually songs about peace don’t usually don’t do very well, but I think it will go very far. Especially with the international press already behind Boggie, this song will do fairly well. Although Boggie’s voice is not as strong as András’ voice was, I think she will still do fairly well.
