Hungary returned to the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 after seven years of absence, with the song "Forogj, Világ" (Spin, World), performed by NOX. The song is written by Attila Valla and composed by Szabolcs Harmath.

NOX was the name of an ancient goddess who was believed to be the queen of the night. Nox was probably the biggest surprise on the Hungarian pop scene in 2002. The frontman of the band is the acclaimed Nagy Tamás who is considered to be one of the greatest talents in Hungarian folk dancing. Péter Szabó Szilvia, is the new talented lead singer. The creative team behind the band has paid special attention to giving Nox a unique image that stands out in the world of Hungarian pop music. The group has released four albums so far.

The spokesperson who revealed Hungary's votes for other countries was model and MTV host Zsuzsa Demcsák.[1] The commentators during the Contest's broadcast were Zsuzsa Demcsák, András Fáber, and Dávid Szántó.
