Hungary is all set for Heat 2 of A Dal 2019, continuing the country’s search for its Eurovision 2019 representative.

Following an exciting Heat 1 of A Dal 2019, Hungary continues the selection process for its Eurovision 2019 entry. Broadcaster MTVA will deliver another grand show to the public, expertly hosted by Freddie and Bogi Dallos.

This evening, another group of 10 hopefuls will take to the stage, presenting their respective acts and songs. Among them is Hungary’s Eurovision 2014 representative András Kállay-Saunders, who returns as part of The Middletonz.

The contestants will be judged by the professional jury, consisting of Miklós Both, Misi Mező, Feró Nagy and Lilla Vincze. The viewers at home function as the fifth jury member and will vote through televoting, leading up to a combined result and the next qualifiers for the semi-finals.

Again, six acts will advance in the selection. The five songs with the highest combined set of scores will automatically qualify. Of the five songs that do not make it to the Top 5, the song that gets the most votes from the audience will also go to the semi-finals. Thus, tonight six acts will progress to the semi-finals.
