Magdi Ruzsa - The first Hungarian world star?

Hungary in English blog has already written about Magdi Ruzsa. The reason for the new post about her is her great ESC performance in Eurovision Song Contest semi-final which dazzled viewers and critics both. Her fantastic performance was enough for the final which is held tonight.

According to lots of people she is one of the best in the field. Tonight over 100 million viewers can see her and vote for her at the final of ESC.

The Hungary in English blog thinks that she does have the chance to win. First of all, her ESC performance is the second most viewed of ESC semi-final performances on YouTube, and the vast majority of commenters think that she is the best and she has the only authentic voice. They write that they will certainly vote for Magdi. Youtubers think the other singers sang cheap bubblegum pop hits which can't be compared to Magdi's voice and song.

Secondly, as we all know, people can't vote for singers from their country tonight. However, there is a high Hungarian minority in neighbouring countries. About 4,5 million Hungarians live in Serbia (where Magdi comes from), Romania, Slovakia, Ukraina, Sweden, etc. But we don't want to forecast anything. At midnight everything will turn out.

And to answer the question which was asked in the title: if even Magdi wins, it is important to mention that very few of ESC competitors have later became an international star, excluding Celine Dion or ABBA, for example.
