A Dal 2016 Heat One Hungary Eurovision

We’ve known the A Dal 2016 contestants and their songs for some time now. But it was only on Monday that Hungary’s MTVA revealed the ten acts which will compete in the competition’s first heat on Saturday 23 January. The line-up includes the 2010 Megasztár winner Reni Tolvai and the Rising Star 2015 finalist Freddie. 

Only six will make it through to the semifinals. An initial round of voting will see five qualifiers progress, as determined by a mixture of jury and viewer scores. The sixth semifinalist will be chosen during a second round of 100% public voting. Viewers at home will be able to vote by SMS, via the app or online. In fact, those of you outside Hungary will also be able to vote on the official A Dal website. But before all that, it’s time to choose your favourites. Who deserves to make it out of the heat?

You can listen to all ten tracks below. Then vote in our poll. You can vote for as many contestants as you like, but you can only vote ONE time. Be sure to check the box next to every act you want to support before submitting your votes. Voting ends on Friday 22 January — just ahead of the first heat on Saturday 23 January. Also, you can still vote in our main A Dal poll, where you can choose from all 30 entries.

Extremely poor selection, I hope the other heats will be better with more inspired songs like Katonak, Seven Seas or Come Along.

That Pioneer song feels and sounds dull for me, don’t get the hype as well.

Out of this bunch, I would go with Uncle Tom. Not great, but listenable.

Reni Tolvai has the only song here that I like (and I only like it because of the little trap segment at 1:43)
I don’t get the hype for Freddie at all

Jazmin Torok, Freddie, Benji, Fatima, Reni and Bytheway are my qualifiers for the semi.
Singing peace sounds quite depressed in my book, comparing to other peace songs at ESC. My last spot is Stardust, I find this song very boring.

Jazmin Torok – Power of Love 7.5/10. Could’ve been great in 1999 or even 2006, doesn’t suit 2016 very well. Buttttt… I’m actually OK with a bit of outdated naffery given the rest of the options here, and she sings well for a more poppy Alanis Morissette clone. Odett – Stardust 7/10. Honestly in most other national selections this’d get about a 4, but in this bunch… Fatima Mohamed – Ott Leszek 6.5/10. Have we heard it before, and done better/ yes. But it’s at least a bit of fun and tbh there’s not much that makes people’s ears pay… Read more »

Freddie with Pioneer!

If you liked the idea behind “Wars for Nothing” but felt that it wasn’t miserable or depressing enough, you’ll love “Singing Peace”.
