#BIRTHDAY: Joci Pápai from Hungary is 41 today

Eurovision these days is all about English, isn’t it? No other language gets a look in, does it? English is always the way forward.

It wasn’t necessarily the case in 2017, and non-English songs have now won the last two contests. But in 2017 there was the usual crop of songs in English. Or at least in [insert country name]’s view of English. And in 2017, we remember that Salvador won with his sublime song. Not in English. Not Schlager. Not with an irritating light show. No wonder so many of the fans hated it. A little further down the table you’ll find this kickass non-English song by today’s birthday boy József ‘Joci’ Pápai. Who needs English when you can sing in Magyar and finish eighth? How many countries would kill to finish that high up these days?
