Amongst the line-up are several high profile names that have competed in the Hungarian Eurovision selection before. Arguably the most notable names are Gigi Radics and Kállay Saunders Band. In 2013, Gigi reached the superfinal but ultimately lost out to ByeAlex. András Kállay-Saunders also competed in that superfinal but went one step further in 2014 to win A Dal. He returned with his band in 2016, reaching the superfinal once again but lost out to Freddie.

A Dal: One of the most successful Eurovision selections

A Dal has been a remarkable success for Hungary since it began in 2012. Every act the competition has selected for Eurovision has gone on to reach the grand final. When factoring in Kati Wolf’s qualification the year before, Hungary have now accumulated six consecutive qualifications – one of the longest sequences of any Eurovision country currently participated. Surely a win for Hungary is just around the corner?

My first memory of watching the Eurovision Song Contest was back in 2001 and, over the years, my passion and enthusiasm for the contest has very much turned into an obsession. I adore music and I love geography, so this contest is a natural fit for me. If la la loving Eurovision was a crime, I'd certainly be a criminal!
