In a press conference held earlier today in Budapest, MTV presented the 30 songs which will take part in A Dal in February and March. After the list of the songs was announced, two artists withdrew for their songs being released before the 1st of September, and today one more withdrawal was announced, for the very same reason.
The song by Egy másik zenekar has also been withdrawn from the Contest, and MTV has announced that Laura Cserpes will take part in A Dal instead of the band, with her song “Élj pont úgy”.
10 songs will take part in each of the heats on the 2nd, 9th and 16th of February, where the juries will select the best three to qualify for the semi finals, and three other songs will be chosen by televoting. In the two semi finals on the 23rd and 24th of February, there will be nine songs in each, where the juries will choose the best two to qualify for the final, and the televoting will add another two, making it a final of eight. The juries will then in the final choose the best four out of the eight, and then televoting will decide on who will be the lucky one to represent Hungary in Eurovision in Malmö.
The final list of participants is as follows:
A Dal will be celebrated in MTV studios, same as last year.
