He’s the former Head of Delegation who took the singer-songwriter Joci Pápai and metalcore band AWS to Eurovision. Now, after leaving the Hungarian broadcaster following ESC 2019, Lőrinc Bubnó has given an in-depth interview about the challenges he faced and given his assessment of Hungary’s withdrawal from the contest. Bubnó made his remarks when speaking with former Czech HoD Jan Bors, as part of his Humans of Eurovision interview series. Bors is speaking with several different people from the world of the song contest, from Iceland’s HoD Felix Bergsson to Wiwibloggs editor William Lee Adams. You can watch the full interview with Bubnó below. The text that follows highlights the key points. After leading the Hungarian delegation for three consecutive seasons, Bubnó left the broadcaster citing personal reasons. Nowadays, he’s both the manager and a member of the eight-piece vocal ensemble called “St. Ephraim Male Choir“, and he also runs his own solo looping project called Nomique. Asked about his experience as an HoD, Lőrinc said that he didn’t follow the contest beforehand, but really enjoyed being involved once he got stuck in.
