While the Hungarian broadcaster has been giving Eurovision itself a wide berth since they quit the contest ahead of last year’s edition, their national selection A Dal has been reborn as a national song contest, promoting Hungarian language music in the country and providing cash prizes for the finalists.
Last night, the final of the competition took place with eight acts participating, who had made it to this point following seven weeks of heats and semi-finals;
- Swing à la Django & Sára Herrer ft. Lajos Sárközi – Maradok
- Petra Katona – Viszlát Múlt
- Jonathan Andelic – Áldom
- BariLaci – Féltelek.
- Gigi Radics – Egy vagy velem
- Mudfield – Nincsen szerencsém
- Zsolt Süle – Befúj
- Kaukázus – Egyetlen szó
With a combination of jury and televoting, the winner was decided, with Kaukázus taking the top prize of 10 million Hungarian forint.
