After months of build-up, the first heat of A Dal 2015 is now over. Ten of this year’s 30 acts took to the stage and the performers were scored by a four-member jury, while the audience served as a fifth member with a mobile application. The top five automatically advanced, with Passed leading the way, followed by Vera Tóth. Fan favourite Bogi finished a surprisingly low third, while Gabi Szucs and Karmapolis also made it through.
