MTV Hungarian Television announced at a press conference on 23 February that this year's entry at the Eurovision Song Contest will be the song "Dance with me" performed by Zoli Ádok.
"Dance With Me is a joyful, dynamic song and we hope that it will rock the Olympic Stadium in Moscow as well as the millions of viewers at home." Jury member and creative director Zsolt Lengyel will work out the on-stage performance of the song together with Zoli Ádok during the next weeks. "It is very extraordinary that a good singer is also a skilled dancer at the same time. Professional motion and a confident stage presence are necessary requirements in order to give a spectacular show." - explained Zsolt Lengyel the decision of the jury. Jury member Gábor Gundel Takács who will be Hungary's commentator this year again, added: "The Eurovision Song Contest started as a competition of songs 54 years ago but became Europe's favourite tv-show with a three-part series of gigantic live events by now."
Zoli Ádok graduated in Pécs as a ballet dancer and then travelled around the world as a professional dance artist and musical actor. As a result, he speaks fluently English and German, moreover he has no difficulties with Spanish either. He performed in Switzerland in the musical Fame and he starred in the musical Cats in Berlin. With the latter he stood 500 times on stage! At home in Hungary he is a regular artist of the Operetta Theatre and the Madách Theatre. Zoli will perform the English version of his single "Tánclépés" which is also the title of his first album released in November 2008.
