Hungary’s Kati Wolf: This lady can sing. But can she move?

Hungarian broadcaster MTVA has announced the the participants for A Dal 2014, the Hungarian national final. A total of 435 entries were received and, with the help of a 10 member professional jury, MTVA has chosen the 30 lucky entries listed below.

Eurovision fans will recognise several of the contestants, including the amusingly named Fool Moon. They served as backing vocalists for 2008 representative Csézy. Looks like they are ready to take centre stage. Gergo Ráczone of the members from Fool Moon, was also a member of boyband V.I.P which represented the country in 1997.

Ahh, ok looks like Kállay took a different approach and went for a more serious song. Sounds good when it picks up though.

Can’t wait for A Dal to start up!!!!!! I actually really like Kállay Saunders’s songs 😀 They’re cheery & he does dance music too.

Haha, I still think Kedvesem (Zoohacker Remix) was quite a good song. The final performance was good too (but their semifinal performance was awful). Nice to see Gigi Radics back too.

They will have to do a lot to top their 10th place finishing, though. Either that or strike just the right chord with the voters like they did this year.

So happy Gigi Radics decided to come back to Eurovision. I loved “Kedvesem” but “Úgy fáj” was so much better in my opinion, I was shocked it didn’t win OGAE 2013. I hope her song is amazing, and I’m sure it will be, she definitely deserves the win. I do wish her song would be in Hungarian, though.

I’m a little disappointed… I thought that Helga Wéber would participate for A Dal 2014. She is such a talented girl and has an incredible voice. With a good song She may win Eurovision for Hungary… Well, maybe in 2015. 🙁

Well, they don’t have to do much to do to top their previous effort. Not meaning result-wise, but more about the song.

May the best win, Hungary!
