Belgium: Plagiarism allegations investigated

by Stella Floras 432 views

The similarities between Make it, the song of Giulia Nahmany in the Romanian Eurovision Song Contest pre selection, and Risin', a song released by Belgian Eurosong 2004 runner-up Natalia, will be investigated. “This could be plagiarism”, Natalia's manager Bob Savenberg said. “It has the same structure in any case”.

esctoday.com's partner site Belgovision.comreports that there still is a huge difference between sounding similar and plagiarism. "You have to be able to prove such things", Bob Savenberg told Belgovision.com. The former drummer of Clouseau (Belgium 1991) and manager of Natalia forwarded the song Make it, written by Papa Jr. and singer Giulia Nahmany herself, to the publishing company of the authors of the song Risin'. "They will, if necessary, take action".

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined esctoday.com in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
