Competition 46: answer and winners
The question for this competition is heard in the first part of January 2012 Euro Hit 40 show, after hit number 35 Ik Neem Je Mee by Gers Pardoel, sung in Dutch. The question was about which country - other than the obvious one - has Dutch as an official language. The options given were:

a) Austria
b) Belgium
c) England
d) Finland
e) Germany

Answer: Belgium (which also has French and German as official languages).

Our congratulations - and the prizes too - go to:

Marthin Nyatundo - who lives in Kenya


Ted Lim - who lives in Taiwan


Our first - Dutch - Eurobuster this month comes from the band with the name Go Back To The Zoo. Here's their page on MySpace. Their Eurobuster song is What If and you can see the accompanying video in the Eurobusters 2012 section of EH40 TV on YouTube.

Our second Eurobuster is Don't Let the Music Stop and can also be found on EH40 TV. The track comes from the dance act - with Romanian roots - called Radio Killer. Here's their blog page which appears to be in Romanian only.
