Welcome to Tralala.gr Freddie! How are you preparing for Eurovision these days?
Everything is going on fine here in Stockholm because the organisers have prepared something amazing. I am very excited about what the swedish guys created!
You attended some of the Eurovision Parties before coming here. How was it performing in front of a Eurovision audience like that?
I was and still am speechless, I was amazed by how the crowd loved the song, how they kept singing along with me… Beautiful experience… I am grateful for those moments!
What does representing Hungary in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest mean for you personally?
It is a beautiful thing one of the greatest honor an artist could have, I can’t stand waiting to get on stage, and I could only hope that the audience in Stockholm would love the song the same way as they did during the Eurovision Parties.
Can you describe us the message behind your song “Pioneer”?
You will get this from the moments we will step on the stage of the Eurovision, so I don’t want to reveal anything more. You will have to wait for some hours!
Regardless of the final result, what do you think you will gain through this experience?
It is a wonderful opportunity to improve. I also come to Stockholm to learn… There is always Room for improvement, and I would want to take my chances. I am more than glad to be chosen as the representative of our country.
Have you listened to any other entries? Which are your favorites?
I did not have the chance to listen to every entries but I really like the armenian one and the french song is Making me smile… Its a cute song!
