Magdolna Rúzsa (born 28 November 1985 in Vrbas, Serbia) is a Hungarian singer who won the 2006 title of Megasztár ("Megastar"), Hungary's nationwide talent search, closely linked to Pop Idol. As the winner of the category "Newcomer of the Year" at the Fonogram Hungarian Music Awards in 2007, she represented Hungary at the Eurovision Song Contest in Helsinki, Finland. She finished ninth and won the award for Best Composer. She often performs songs by her favorite singer, Janis Joplin.

Rúzsa studied in Subotica as an obstetric nurse. Her ambition was to attend medical university. However, being unable to afford it, she decided to try out for a pop idol contest in Budapest. She was discovered in 2005, thanks to the third edition of pop idol contest Megasztár (Megastar) in Hungary.

After winning the competition, Rúzsa's album, featuring the songs she performed during the show's finals, went triple platinum and to date has sold around 80,000 copies. Her first artist album Ördögi Angyal (Devilish Angel) was released on her birthday (November 28, 2006), and has sold 36,000 copies so far. These two records were the biggest-selling releases in 2006 in Hungary.

Rúzsa was voted New Talent of the Year in 2006, representing Hungary at the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest in Helsinki. She decided to sing in English because she felt that the lyrics of the song are of high importance and wanted people to understand what Unsubstantial Blues was all about. The semi-finals took place on May 10, 2007, and Rúzsa made her way to the finals in second place with 224 points. At the final on May 12, 2007 she finished 9th with 128 points. Being the songwriter of Unsubstantial Blues, she was also granted the Best Composer Award, which is given to the best songwriter among the Eurovision song composers every year.Magdi Ruzsa 220px-Magdi_Rúzsa_performing_at_the_ESC_2007_in_Helsinki
