The Wiwi Jury — our in-house team of music unprofessionals — had a wonderful journey through Hungary and finally we share our thoughts about the biggest name in A Dal 2015 – Kati Wolf!. Love or hate her, you have to admit, she has a real chance. She’d like to represent Hungary again, this time with “Ne Engedj El” and it looks like the A Dal jury and the public support her. But what about the Wiwi Jury? Read on to find out… 

Angus: I like the song but the presentation is creepy and the fact Kati is struggling vocally isn’t disguised well at all. The ballad has the potential to be dynamite but she needs depth and power behind her voice, and that just hasn’t been there yet really. The emotional intensity she gives at the bridge isn’t enough to compensate for a general lack of energy.

Score: 7.5/10

Deban: “Ne Engedj El” is a great addition to Kati Wolf’s growing catalogue. However, as a standalone Eurovision entry, it’s highly unlikely to improve her ranking back in 2011. Kati’s vocals appear to grapple with this track, and without any lyrics in English or a noticeable hook in its composition, fans are unlikely to be gripped by this number.

Score: 5.5/10

Francheska: QUEEN! Kati brings the drama, the suspense, the heartbreak, and stunning vocals together to create a performance that this both enchanting and empowering. The song does not rely on overdone shticks and methods, but rather quality and the emotion to float through. To quote Auntie Mame: it’s devastating, just simply devastating, dahling!

Score: 10/10

Robyn: I like this performance a lot less than I did a couple of weeks ago. Kati has a great voice, but the problem is the song. While it works well with Kati’s talents, it’s lacking an immediate hook. Compared to the masterpieces that were “Kedvesem” and “Running”, this is snooze-worthy.

Score: 6/10

Renske: In 2009, Anastasiya Prikhodka taught us that putting your face on a LED screens won’t improve your song, just scare people. However, I like the song and believe that it could finish well in A Dal with the right staging. But it’s simply not strong enough to do good in Vienna.

Score: 7/10

Max: Kati always delivers no matter what song she’s singing and this time is no different. I was a massive fan of her in 2011 and it’s no different four years later. Her song this time has so much power behind it that it could light up half of Budapest. If this got to Vienna I’d be a very happy guy. By the way is it me or does she look like Katie Hopkins?!

Score: 8.5/10

Judit: Okay, I can’t change my opinion, everyone is only crazy about her because she took part in ESC before! But this song…it won’t make the final or if it miraculously does she won’t get a better place than 22nd. I will never understand the hype around Kati.

Score: 3/10

Padraig: The shocking frock and costume jewellery are binned. And instead we have a much more restrained, performance and look. Kati is in the zone, there’s no need to worry about silly dancing, she can focus solely on the job at hand – singing. But the “wow factor” is missing. She’s pushing towards Celine Dion territory, and perhaps with a better song she’d make it all the way.

Score: 7.5/10

Patrick: Ladies and Gentlemen, people of Hungary – Kati is my favourite! This song is already my most played song on my phone and that’s proof enough of how much I love the song! It’s magical, it’s dark and it’s strong! I have to admit her vocals in the semi were lacking but I still love it. She won’t win but I hope she does well. GO KATI!

Score: 10/10

WIWI JURY AVERAGE: 7.22/10

I also second Judit, every word she said 😛 I don’t understand the hype around Kati, but my guess is that is just because she already took part in ESC so she’s “known”. The thing is, I never liked What about my dreams, and unfortunately this song is not better.

Francheska says I quote “QUEEN! Kati brings the drama, the suspense, the heartbreak, and stunning vocals”………………………..For me unfortunately she forgot to bring the song!!!!! It’s a song contest. Queen of what exactly? She came 22nd in 2011 and could not perform live on the night?? Judit, Deban and Robyn have got it spot on yet their scores are so different!!! This is an average song at best.

Her song sounds like a drama series theme song. She might get back to her old placing.

Let down 4 me as i expected a way better song from Kati Wolf that offered us the smash anthem *What About My Dreams*….Voted as the no1 winner in the pre contest voting by OGAE fan clubs…{ By the way in a while the VOTING procedure of this year’s edition of OGAE will gonna start and kick off! 😀 <3 Im so excited about that! 🙂 } Her song is not my no1 favorite though to win tomorrow night…Its actually my 2nd runner up favorite.. *Ne Engedj El* might not do her justice with being far inferior than her 2011… Read more »
