This year’s theme was ‘Celebrate Diversity’ and although an overwhelming number of nations chose to send entries in the English language, a small number sang in their native tongue. This included French, Italian, Portuguese and Hungarian being represented, as well as a first time appearance for Belorussian and Romansh. Here are the nominees for the category Best Song Not In The English Language at the Eurovision NI Awards 2017.
