Three songs, two by internal selection and one by competition, have been announced for the Eurovision Song Contest this week. France, Israel, and Hungary now know their representatives in Dusseldorf.
On Monday, France made the long-awaited debut of its song "Sognu" ("Dream") as sung by Amaury Vassili. Though the selection has been known for some time, the actual debut of the song and video was weeks in the making. The song is in Corsican. Here's the video:
On Tuesday, Israel held its national selection final KDAM to determine their representative. The winner was 1998 Eurovision winner Dana International with the song "Ding Dong". Dana International is the fifth Eurovision veteran (and second previous winner) to enter this year's contest. Here is the song:
Wednesday, Hungary announced its internal selection. Wolf Kati, a former contestant on the country's version of The X Factor, will sing the song "What About My Dreams", an English translation of her hit "Szerelem, miért múlsz". Hungary missed out on last year's contest due to financial constraints. Here is the Hungarian version of the song:
Hungary will compete in the first semi-final on May 10. Israel will compete in the second semi-final on May 12. If either country advances, they will join France (one of the Big 5) in the final on May 14.
