This Saturday A Dal 2014, the Hungarian national selection, kicks off with the first heat. Ten songs will compete but only six will qualify for the semi-finals. You can watch the first heat on the official MTV web site from 20:20 CET.
We’ve known the 30 songs competing for quite some time, so all of you can make an informed decision. And I do mean all of you. The voting will be opened worldwide, so everyone will be able to vote for their favourite, just as in the past two years.
A Dal has proven to be very succesful. The Central European country is two-for-two with its selection show, and managed to qualify for the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest in 2012 (with Compact Disco) and 2013 (with ByeAlex).
