#HUNGARY: A Dal 2017 participants announced


Hungary has become the latest country to reveal its list of songs for Eurovision. Our Magyar friends have made the Saturday night Grand Final for the last six years, so with a good record like this there will be a lot of pressure.

The method for selecting Hungary’s representative in Kyiv will again be through the established ‘A Dal’ competition. Thirty songs will compete in three heats, with songs moving through semi-finals and then a final. The first show of the six takes place on Saturday 14 January, with the final on Saturday 18 February. But who are the lucky thirty?


Benji – ‘Karcok’

Olivér Berkes – ‘Ecstasy’

Calidora – ‘Glory’

Kata Csondor – ‘Create’

The one name that stands out is Kállay Saunders. András is back, with his band. It appears that he means business. Ádám Szabó and Gigi Radics have also been in A Dal before, so will also be worth watching.

Hungary has participated in 14 contests, and also in preselections in 1993 and 1996. Their best finish to date is a fourth place for ‘Kinek mondjam el vétkeimet’ by Frederika Bayer in 1994.
