When she left the Serbian province of Vojvodina for Budapest, Magdi Rúzsa felt that the Hungarian talent search Megasztars was her last chance to realize her dream of singing professionally. In the end she won the competition, and since then her career has taken off. Voted best Hungarian Newcomer in 2007 she has the opportunity to enter the Eurovision Song Contest on Hungary's behalf.
