  • Singer-songwriter Boggie specializes in the jazz and French chanson genres. Boggie released her self-titled debut album in 2013.

    Boggie achieved worldwide fame when her music video for “Noveau Parfum” went viral in early 2014. The video shows Boggie being extensively photoshopped until she is unrecognizable. The song became a hit in the U.S and her debut album reached 3rd place on the Billboard Jazz list.

    She also released her second album, All is One is All, in 2014.

    Boggie has toured many places singing live with her band including New York, Paris, Frankfurt and, of course, her native Hungary.

    In 2015, Boggie has been nominated for Glamour Woman of the Year.

     


  • In October 2014, Hungarian broadcaster MTVA called for songs to be sent in to their website in order to be considered for A Dal 2015. In December, Boggie was among the thirty acts that were revealed to be competing in A Dal 2015.

    On February 7, Boggie competed in the third heat of A Dal. Her song was one of six chosen that night to advance to the semi-finals.

    Boggie competed in the first semi-final on February 14 and was chosen by the jury to compete in grand final of A Dal 2015.

    After eight songs were performed on February 28’s grand final, the jury chose “Wars For Nothing” and three other songs as their top four potential Eurovision entries. The Hungarian public were then given the choice of which act they wanted to see represent the country in Vienna. Boggie was voted the winner of A Dal 2015 and will sing her anti-war ballad at Eurovision 2015.
