Bogi, who participated at the 2013 and 2014 Hungarian national selection A Dal, has confirmed that she will perform as the opening act at James Blunt’s upcoming concert.

After viewing a number of performances online, it has been decided that Bogi will open James Blunt’s concert Moon landing next week on Monday 27 October at the László Papp Budapest Sport Arena. Starting at 20:00 local time, Bogi will open the show where she will perform a number of her songs including her 2014 A Dal entry We all. James Blunt will then take to the stage an hour later at 21:00 local time.

A Dal 2014: BogiWe all

A Dal 2013: BogiTükörkép

Bogi first participated at the Hungarian national selection A Dal in 2013 with her entry Tükörkép. Competing in the first heat of the selection, Bogi was eliminated from the heat and therefore did not make it to the semi-final stage. Bogi then went on to return to the 2014 A Dal selection with her entry We all. Qualifying from the heat and the semi-final, Bogi ended in the top 4 of the selection, missing out to Andras Kállay-Saunders and his entry Running.

Earlier this month, the Hungarian national broadcaster MTVA confirmed their participation at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest in the host city of Vienna, Austria. MTVA also confirmed that the next Hungarian representative would once again be selected via the national selection A Dal. Rules for the 2015 selection can be found here.
