Society | May 16, 2007, Wednesday // 00:00

The Serbian song "Prayer" that won this year's Eurovision finals is plagiarism, taken from an Albanian folk song, the Bild newspaper claims.

The original Albanian song is called "Ndaria", popularised by Sony Malay's version.

The Kosova press and the Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet also put on their pages claims that the song is plagiarism. There is still no comment form the Eurovision team and by the Serbian state TV channel.

The "Prayer" song by Maria Sherifovich won the first place thanks to the votes from the many Serbian communities outside the country.

At this year's Eurovision Bulgaria made it to the fifth place at the finals with Elitsa and Stundzhi's song "Water".
