Kátya withdraws!!
Tuesday, february 10th
Kátya Tompos, candidate-to-be for Hungary, withdraws from the contest. Kátya found out that it is not possible for her to combine both her theatre work and Eurovision. She decided to go for theatre!
With this news, the Hungarian participation starts to look like a soap-opera. After Mark Zéntai, who was disqualified because his song was already part of the Swedish Big Brother, it's now the 2nd time Hungary has to find someone new. Does anyone want to be third choise?
