The results are in from the second show in the Hungarian national selection, A Dal. Out of the ten competitors, six are moving forward to the semi finals which are taking place on 10 and 11 February.
Tonight’s show, hosted by Csilla Tatár & Levente Harsányi, saw an initial total of five qualifiers chosen by a mix of jury (80%) and app voting (20%), while a sixth qualifier will be chosen afterwards by televoting only.
The first five qualifiers, chosen by mixture of jury and app votes, were:
- Kállay Saunders Band – 17 (Jury votes: 9, 9, 9, 8 / Public vote: 7 / Combined: 42)
- Gina Kanizsa – Fall like rain (Jury votes: 10, 9, 9, 9 / Public vote: 5 / Combined: 42)
- Peet Project – Kill your monster (Jury votes: 8, 9, 9, 8 / Public vote: 6 / Combined: 40)
- Chase – Dust in the wind (Jury votes: 9, 9, 8, 7 / Public vote: 6 / Combined: 39)
- Mrs Columbo – Frozen King (Jury votes: 8, 8, 8, 8 / Public vote: 6 / Combined: 38)
Then televoting only was used in order to pick the sixth qualifier, which was:
- Ádám Szabó – Together (Jury votes: 7, 8, 8, 7 / Public vote: 8 / Combined: 38)
That means that Zoltán Mujahid, Peter Kovary & The Royal Rebels, Andi Tóth and AnnaElza feat. Juli Kása were all eliminated from the selection, having received the fewest amount of votes in tonight’s show.
Next Saturday, the third and final heat will take place with another 10 songs competing. That show was originally due to take place on 21 January but was postponed and rescheduled; the 2 semi-final shows will take place on the 10 and 11 February with the final airing on the 18 February.
