The Eurovision rumour mill is churning, and word has it that Hari Mata Hari may return to Eurovision in 2014.
Apparently, Hari was the state broadcaster’s first choice in 2013 but then both Bosnia and Herzegovina realised they have no money and decided to withdraw.
However, if we believe the rumours circulating in the Balkan region, B&H are back in the game and one of their potentional representatives is – guess who – Hari Mata Hari. It looks like we’ve found someone with as much enthusiasm as Valentina Monetta…
Bosnia and Herzegovina still trust him, but his wife may not. Six month ago his wife reportedly caught him with another woman. But we aren’t ones to gossip so we will not comment on “news” that has not been confirmed.
Anyway, I’ve had my ear to the ground and apparently Regina wasn’t BHT’s first choice in 2009. Instead it was a duo made up of Hari and our Croatian sweetheart Nina Badric! They were going to throw down a duet called ‘Ne mogu ti reci sto je tuga (I can’t tell you what the sorrow is). The song itself was a great succes even without Eurovision and it even won the Croatian Radio Festival in 2009.
The song is emotional and both vocals are acceptable. Y’all, Nina looks stunning in this white summer dress, as always!
So will we be seeing Hari at ESC 2014? We’ll see in the following weeks. As for now, let’s relive Hari singing about Lejla in 2006. The song ended up in a respectable 3rd place.
