Budapest, Hungary -

MTV, the Hungarian public broadcaster, held a press conference today to announce the representative for the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest. Kati Wolf, who became popular through the local version of X Factor, will sing What About My Dreams in Düsseldorf, a pop-song reminding of the 80s. Listen to it right here!

After taking a one-year-break from participating in the Eurovision Song Contest, Hungary is back again this year. Today the Hungarian entry for the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest was presented on a press conference. Kati Wolf will wave the Hungarian flag in Düsseldorf, singing the pop song What About My Dreams, the lyrics of which will be in a mix of Hungarian and English. The Hungarian version of the song, Szerelem Miért Múlsz, has already been released in February.

"We have never experienced such a great cohesion and support as in the case of Kati. Fans and viewers, from Hungary and abroad, sent us hundreds of letters right after the release of the song that this is the one they want for Eurovision." - Attila Várkonyi, Executive Producer

Even though Kati Wolf's recent career started only with her participation in the Hungarian version of X Factor, she already had the first contacts with the fields of music and TV as a small child, when she sang the title track of the cartoon Vuk.

The song What About My Dreams was composed by Viktor Rakonczay and Gergő Rácz, who already represented Hungary in the 1997 Eurovision Song Contest as a part of the band V.I.P. Moreover, they wrote the Hungarian entry in 2008, Candlelight, performed by Csézy.

The Hungarian lyrics were written by Péter Geszti, a well-known musician and TV personality in Hungary. Johnny K. Palmer, who became famous after his participation in the Austrian talent show Starmania, contributed the English lyrics. He has Jamaican and Ethiopian roots and currently lives in Budapest.

"What About My Dreams brings back the atmosphere of the disco music of the 80s, in which I grew up and which I love, but the modern arrangement makes it up-to-date. This song represents the way I am, it is just like me and it makes me very happy that the audience likes it too! I am sure that all the 100 million viewers from across Europe and Hungary will love it too," says Kati Wolf about her entry.

The official announcement of the Hungarian entry was made on a press conference today. If you missed the live transmission, you can watch it again in our ESCTV Player! Apart from that, you can already check out the official preview video with the final version of the Hungarian entry below:

Hungary was drawn to take part in the second half of the First Semi-Final of the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest, to take place on May 10th in Düsseldorf.

    I like Kati's intelligence and humor.
    ...and her voice too. :-)

    The sound of 80's is not too close to me. But I find it difficult to imagine clubs in Europe when the DJ puts on this song there is anyone who don't move his/her buttocks. :-)

    Go Kati!! report to the moderator

    well, you know my view on this by now, i find it just perfect as it easy, and this loudness of it gives a very dynamic touch to the whole rythm...just perfect..as for denmark, i must first listen to it and i will come back.. report to the moderator

    I heard it more times. May be it is a question of frequency of the sound, a tone. Some people sing very well but this singing is not always percepted as a pleasant one. If she had at least 50% of this song more silent it would be much better for me. The beginning is excellent and my general impression is that the song is overloaded. My latest searches find Dino as a winer this year and I see many reasons for this. What do you think of the Denmark's 2nd place; the song that did not qualify for Eurovision. This is another mystery worth attention. I commented this case under Denmark Website. report to the moderator

    Barry, please read all of the posts before you write... You are going to find some videos link... where you will find some live, unplugged performances by Kati.

    for example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Wz4Yq-S98U

    you will be convinced about her knowledge.. she has got a brutal flu with high fever in the last month for a very long time..., therefore she has got problem with singing... but dont fear, she will be okey at the show...

    even so maybe hungary wont win this year as you said, but it will not trough her live performance. the blockvoting is our enemy. report to the moderator

    She simply cant sing live which is the only reason she and Hungary wont win this year im afraid!

    Good Luck though. report to the moderator
