MTVA (Hungarian National Broadcaster) held a press conference this morning – December 3rd – to announce the details of their Eurovision 2014 selection at A-Dal.
Over 200 songs were received by the broadcaster and 30 will now be selected by the panel to proceed to the live shows which will consist of 3 heats January 25th/February 1st and 8th. Two Semi Finals will then take place on February 15th and 16th with the Grand Final on February 22nd.
A ten member Jury will now select the 30 songs/acts for the live shows – an announcement should be made by Wednesday December 11th. The Live show jury members were presented and pictured this morning – Rákay Philip, deputy general manager of MTV Ltd., Csiszar Eugene radio host, Katie and Ruzsa Magdi singers and Hungary’s 2013 Eurovision Representative ByeAlex. ByeAlex took to Facebook to express how excited he was at being involved in the “Eurovision 2014 Team”
Many big named Hungarian artists have confirmed that they have entered songs into the contest. These include
- Kállay-Saunders Andras
- Dénes Pál
- Laura Cserpes
- Gergő Baricz
Kállay-Saunders Andras was in the 2013 National Selection for Hungary in 2013 with the highly infectious “My Baby” which came second to ByeAlex.
Also attempting to make the final again like she did in 2013, is Laura Cserpes
