A Dal was once again a huge success in Hungary, and the viewing figures of all the six shows were huge, and ever since the format was established in 2012, this show has been one in the top five most watched shows in Hungary in the whole year.
Artists and songs which took part in A Dal this year, and artists who took part in one of the previous two years, are now also nominees for the best acts in both biggest Hungarian Music Awards shows – Bravo Otto, and Viva Comet.
We have András Kállay Saunders (the winner of A Dal 2014, runner-up in 2013, and a semi finalist in 2012) and Viktor Király (finalist of A Dal in 2012 and 2014) as nominees for the best male artist in both of these galas, and ByeAlex (represented Hungary in Malmö) and Caramel (A Dal finalist in 2012) as nominees for the best male artist in one of these galas.
Hien (A Dal 2014) and Gigi Radics (A Dal 2013 and 2014) who both took part this year are also nominated for the best female act in both galas. Laura Cserpes (A Dal 2013 and 2014), Gabi Tóth (A Dal 2012), Linda Király (A Dal 2012 and 2014), Heni Dér (A Dal 2014), and Bogi (A Dal 2013 and 2014) are nominees in one of the galas, also for the best female act of the year.
In the newcommer of the year category, we have New Level Empire (A Dal 2014 finalists) as nominees in both galas, while Bogi (A Dal 2013 and 2014) and Fatima Mohamed (A Dal 2013) as nominees in Viva Comet only.
And last but not least, the category “Song Of The Year” is only awareded in Bravo Otto, and out of five nominees, three of them come from A Dal: “Running” by Kállay Saunders, “Running Out Of Time” by Viktor Király, and “We All” by Bogi – all of which ended up in the superfinal of A Dal this year.
Also, seven of the 30 songs that took part in A Dal this year are charting very high on the Mahasz Top 40 charts (charts which include music from all over the world), and two songs from last year’s A Dal are still in these charts – “Csak állj mellém” by Gergő Rácz, and “Úgy fáj” by Gigi Radics.
This proves that A Dal is a fantastic format, where all the biggest names of the Hungarian music industry want to take part, and the newcommers can get affirmed and possibly signed to a big label.
