Moments ago, the Hungarian public broadcaster MTVA has revealed 10 out of 30 candidates which will compete in the Hungarian national selection, A Dal. MTVA announced that they had received a total of 351 songs during the submission period.
These are the 10 acts that have been chosen for A Dal 2015 so far:
- Chances – The Night
- Boggie – Wars For Nothing
- Bogi – World Of Violence
- Balázs Farkas-Jenser – Liar
- Karmapolis – The Time Is Now
- MDC – Maniac
- Barbara Peter-Barbie – Listen To The Universe
- Spoon – Keep Marching On
- Saci & Bobe Szécsi – Our Time
- Vera Toth – Gyémánt
A Dal will kick off on 24th January 2015, when the first preselection heat will be broadcast, and will finish with the Grand Final on the 28th of February.
The voting system for the upcoming A Dal will include a professional jury and public votes. The jury for the 2015 edition of the Hungarian national selection will consist of Philip Rákay, Jeno Csizsár, Magdi Rúzsa and Pierrot. The televoting part will be done via an app, where the public will be able to award points from 1 to 10, from which the mean will count as the fifth jury vote.
Six songs from every heat will go through to the next stage. Five of the six songs will be chosen by the five jury votes and the app mean score, whereas the sixth song will be picked via a joint app and SMS vote. Whether the same number of heats and semi-finals will be held as in previous years is still not clear. Traditionally, the A Dal format consists of three preselection heats, two semi-final shows and a final.
The remaining 20 acts will be revealed on Wednesday and Friday, respectively.
What do you think of the first part of Hungarian line-up?
