Here's our third interview! This time, we interviewed Dávid Koleszár, one of the few persons who has the luck to represent their own country in Eurovision Memories (in this case, Hungary).
1. How did you joined EM? How did you find out about EM?
I've joined EM in June, in 2012, when I've finished my exams in high school. I've found out about EM on the Internet, I just saw an article about it on the ESC Hungary Fan Page on Facebook. Then, I've discovered that Hungary was free and I've joined.
2. Did you discover new music at EM? Name some of your favourite songs.
I've discovered many new musics at EM and I'm glad that I find new songs in every edition. I think, that there are many styles of music, from which I can select my favourites. Some of my favourite songs are:
Mónica Naranjo - Make you rock
Severina - Hurem
Stromae - Papaoutai
Kate Winslet - What if
3. What do you like most about EM?
I like the fact that we are a cohesive team, the design of each edition, the special editions, of course, and the most important: the music from all Europe.
4. Are you happy with the results and voting system in general?
In general, I'm happy with the results, except when Hungary or my favourite song(s) are on the last places. I think that the voting system is fair, because there aren't any block voting and the members vote for the song, not for the person.
5. Do you think that this contest can be improved? How?
I think that this contest can be improved. We could give our points with video calling, like in ESC.
6. What do you think about the EM Organizers and the other groups of EM (Family, Journalists, Fairness Commitee)?
I'm content with the work of EM Organizers. They work on well and I haven't got problems with them. The EM Family
works great on Facebook, the Journalists write very good articles and the Fairness Commitee has good decisions in
7. Did EM influenced your life in some particular way?
The EM really influenced my life, because I've gained new friends from all Europe, mainly from the neighbour countries
of Hungary and those friends understand and help me when I've got some problems in my life. I think that the international recognition is very important today.
8: Since when do you follow the show? Which are you first memories of it?
I follow Eurovision since 2007, when Magdi Rúzsa represented Hungary in Helsinki with Unsubstantial Blues. I remember that I accidentally switched on the TV and I've found it.
9. Did you liked this year's winner? Did you had any other favourites?
I liked this year's winner and I've heard that Denmark was the most probable winner. I had many favourites, for example:
Amandine Bourgeois - L'enfer et moi
Anouk - Birds
ByeAlex - Kedvesem (Zoohacker remix)
Cezar - It's my life
10. What about ESC2014? What are you expecting with all the recent news, from already selected singers to details about the
venue and the show?
I'm very curious how Denmark will organize Eurovision on their third time. I'm curious how the singers will perform their
songs, how will be the spectacle, the stage, the postcards (if there would be postcards) and what kind of special
performances will exist.
11. If you had to select, which would be your "All-Time" song from ESC?
That's a very hard question, because I have many "All-Time" songs. But if I had to choose one song, it would be: Céline Dion - Ne partez pas sans moi (1988 Switzerland).
12. Any last words to end the interview?
My friends know that I'm keen on ESC and that's a fact. I know the winners from the beginning with titles, singers or
groups, countries, host cities and countries, even when I'm drunk. When I go to karaoke parties in Szeged, I mostly sing songs from Eurovision in English, French, Estonian, Russian, Italian, of course and I post it on Facebook. So, ESC and EM are my life.
Many thanks, Dávid! We still have many people to interview and we can even have a surprise! Just stay tuned!
