Who will win A Dal 2016?

It’s finally official! Hungary will be in Austria for the 60th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. Singers and songwriters can submit their songs to MTVA from October 1 until November 15.

MTVA has launched a series of new rules for this year’s national selection A Dal. First, they want performers who have already started their careers, and whose earlier songs are well-known in Hungary. The submission period is also shorter this year because they want more time to prepare for the live shows.

The format of the competition has changed to. This year it will consist of just two rounds, and the semi-final stage has been removed. Apparently the audience will play a more active role in the show too.

Hungary also wants to keep the show local. Foreigners can apply, but only if a Hungarian artist will sing on the stage. Songs can be in any language, but the application has to include Hungarian lyrics for the song too. Organizers will decide which language will be used in Vienna.

Hungary has made the final for four consecutive years. Kállay-Saunders gave a memorable performance in Denmark, feeding Hungary’s desire to win the Eurovision. It would be nice if the contest can move from Austria to Hungary in 2016!

What do you think about the new rules? Are you happy about Hungary?

I hope “established artists” includes anyone who participated last year, because the entries really were that good. Hope to see Fool Moon back.

The rule isn’t really necessary, though. Remember, it’s not as though Emmelie de Forest was at all well-known before her national final victory.

Hey Hungarians, take it from a UK eurovision fan, ‘established’ does not necessarily mean better! Our countries past entires are living proof of that!!!

Seriously hope sexy Andras returns to the contest, haha but on another note, Hungary has been one of my favorite Eurovision nations since they returned in 2011 and they are due a win, it will happen, and I won’t be surprised if it happens next year, Budapest 2016

Andras Kallay-Saunders had said that he will try to represent Hungary for a second year in a row.

I like Hungary in the Eurovision Song Contest and I’m very glad that they get good results in recent years. But am I the only one who think their last two entries were so overrated? I mean I liked “Running” and I thought it was a good song. But to finish 5th was too much credit for this song. Moreover András Kállay-Saunders was such a soulless performer. Not to mention ByeAlex and “Kedvesem.” I do not only detest that song with a passion, but ByeAlex is one of the most boring, emotionless and irritating perfomers who have ever set foot… Read more »

I’m happy to read this, it could be mean that Hungary is really taking this event very seriously. I hope the word “established artist” is also mean indie musicians that have already released their music and known locally, because for me personally, I really want to see some indie musicians delivering their finest music at Eurovision.

Their efforts have been great for the past 2 years. Same as The Netherlands, they could win the whole thing in the near future if they can keep the momentum by sending quality songs.
