Last weekend,the three heats in Hungary came to an end.Out of the thirty songs which originally entered the competition,eighteen have progressed to the semi-finals,where they’ve been split in two semis of nine.

The semi-finals will look like this:

Semi-final 1 (13th February):

  • Benji – ‘Kötéltánc’
  • B The First – ‘You Told Me You Loved Me’
  • Gergő Oláh – ‘Győz A Jó’
  • Kállay Saunders Band – ‘Who We Are’
  • Karmapolis & Böbe Szécsi – ‘Hold On To’
  • Mushu – ‘Uncle Tom’
  • Petruska – ‘Trouble In My Mind’
  • Reni Tolvai – ‘Fire’
  • Szilvia Agárdi – ‘It Is Love’

Semi-final 2 (20th February):

  • André Vásáry – ‘Why’
  • ByTheWay – ‘Free To Fly’
  • Egy Másik Zenekar – ‘Kéne Közös Kép’
  • Freddie – ‘Pioneer’
  • Laci Gáspár – ‘Love and Bass’
  • Nika – ‘Emlékkép’
  • Olivér Berkes & Andi Tóth – ‘Seven Seas’
  • Parno Graszt – ‘Már Nem Szédülök’
  • Passed – ‘Driftin’

Four songs will qualify from each semi-final. Three qualifiers will be determined by the jury, combined with the app. Each song will be scored out of 10 by the jury and the app voters. The top three will qualify for the final. The additional, fourth qualifiers, will come from 100% televote.

Seven songs achieved a score of 39 or higher, and five of them will be performed in semi-final 1. The biggest favourites after the heats seem to be Freddie and Petruska, who both scored 42 points in the heats. Other favourites include Kállay Saunders Band (41 points), Szilvia Agárdi (40 points),  Benji, Gergő Oláh and André Vásáry (who all got 39 points). Freddie is the favourite to win the second semi-final,since all the major contenders are in the first semi-final.

Interesting to note is also that András Kállay Saunders will be competing against his girlfriend, Reni Tolvai. Judging on the heats, András has won this battle of the lovers, but you can’t underestimate Reni.

The final of A Dal 2016 will take place on 27th February. We’ll then see who will follow in Boggie’s footsteps.

I'm a 16 year old Serbian eurofan, currently living in Budapest. I've been passionate about Eurovision since 2009, but watched it in 2003 already. When I am not listening to ESC songs, I enjoy watching sports or reading. I am fluent in English, Serbian and Hungarian and I love learning new languages. My ultimate favourite national selection is Eesti Laul.
