Lots of, to A Dal watchers, familiar names in the selection among which Benji, Mujahid Zoltán, Radics Gigi, Singh Viki, Spoon 21 and Szabó Ádám. Also ofcourse Kállay Saunders Band of which Andás Kallay Saunders is the front man, who gave Hungary a 5th place finish at the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen with Running.
So 30 songs are competing in A Dal this year and the selection will contain six shows, starting with the first show on Saturday the 14th of January.
Karóly Frenreisz and Miklos Both will be on the jury again and the shows will be hosted by Csilla Tatár and Levente Harsayni. Levente is a TV and radio host and you might recognise Csilla from her being the spokesperson for Hungary at Eurovision.
One of these songs might continue the Hungarian qualification streak of qualifying to six finals in a row and make it a seventh!
