Boglárka Csemer‚ the pretty lady all y’all know as Boggie, has won A Dal 2015 with her song “Wars for Nothing.” As she told us in an interview ahead of the final, the song is inspired by wars that take place for no reason. The strength of the song lies in its modesty and honesty.
Tonight eight finalists opened the show together by performing a group song before turning to their individual performances. Afterwards the jury to decided on four super finalists who then faced a public vote (using both SMS and a special app).
Much to the surprise of Eurovision fans, Kati Wolf did not make the superfinal. But she’s OK. As she told us in an interview afterwards, the point of participating was to relaunch in Hungary — and she has done that.

BOGGIE – WARS FOR NOTHING
What do you think of the results? Did the best act win A Dal 2015? Do you think Hungary has a strong shot of reaching the Top 5 in the Eurovision Grand Final again? Let us know below.
You can watch our interviews with Boggie here:
She is very sweet, but the song couldn’t be more boring… Big yaaaaaaawn!!!
Well all I can say is that I’m underwhelmed by this song and I am deeply upset that Kati didn’t win! To be honest, I can’t see this qualifying! 🙁
Very happy for Boggie
i think its the fist time i actually like Hungarys song! good luck from Romania!
@Mario: Almost certainly, all of them will make music videos before ESC. Only a few might not. If my memory serves me well, only 3 countries didn’t make videos last year: Lithuania, Portugal and home country Denmark. Denmark finished 9th, anyway; the other 2 failed to make the final. Danes could afford to take chances at not making a video, because they were on home turf last year, and Austria might get away with not making one this year; but everyone else had better release one, to give the televoters and would-be jurors a better idea–between mid-March and mid-May–as to… Read more »
Top 20 from Belgium:
19-Finland. (respect for you guys but this song is just no. Sorry!)
*Wars 4 Nothing* is even better song than last year’s *Running* that finished 5th..
Hopefully Hungary will qualify to the final with Boggie and do descently enough there.. 🙂
Nope Boggie hasn’t made the video clip 4 the song yet…But now that she won the A Dal 2015 & will represent Hungary in the Diamond Vision obviously it will be strong reason 4 her to go and make one! 🙂
I really had thought that the Hungarians would go and vote either Adam or the boy band Spoon with the 4 hot hunks babes instead of Boggie…That was a very pleasant surprise though that she won the televoting and this shows that the people can be fair & go with the better song and not only guided by the factor of hotness/popularity alone.. Of course i really want to see hot babes like Zoltan or Markus Riva of Latvia as its pure delight 4 me but if their songs suck or are not good enough over others much better ones… Read more »
I didn’t get to watch A Dal, but I heard Boggie’s song once, and I thought it was a very good song. I wouldn’t be surprised if this song keeps Hungary in the top 10 for a 3rd-straight year. Has she made a music video yet?
*Wars 4 Nothing* was my no1 favorite from the 8 so i’m really happy that dear Boggie won last night! 🙂 I’m not surprised about Kati Wolf finishing 4th as her song was not strong enough to make it and definitely not better than Boggie’s Wiwi contributors got this wrong that Kati was the absolute no1 hot favorite to win the A Dal 2015.. Thank god that Adam did not win in televoting when he finished 1st on the jury and i really expected him to win instead of Boggie in televoters just because he is hot and had appeared… Read more »
urgh so booooooring
This sounds like she’s trying to read out of a poorly written history book rather than actually sing a song. What a shame since she clearly has a great voice…
Love this song. And yes, it´s another ballad. But why complaining if it´s a GOOD ballad?
So today is the day of social causes?
I only heard a snipet of the song, and I like the message of the song
Nah. I really antes Kati Wolf to win. :/
@Noah, Take a chill pill, man. But you do have a point. There are many ballads at ESC this year but this is differently done, MUCH more simple compared to the other ballads which are more “pop-ballads.”
This is atrocious.
Is this Miss World where we all want a world peace or ESC?
I KNEW THIS WOULD WIN!!! This one is a grower and after watching it, I loved it. I preferred other acts but this is a good song. Although I don’t think that Hungary would place in the top 10 with this, I want it to.
Its interesting to see how all of you are defending your choice here, a balad, while you are smashing all those other balads. Oh, wait, this was your “favorite” even thouhg IT IS JUST ANOTHER BALAD, for God’s sake! You’re such an idiots sometimes.
I agree with Deniz, she has a regal look to her. I am almost reminded by Frederika Beyer.
The song is a bit dull, the singing is generally all over the place and the link to the situation in Ukraine isn’t exactly subtle. This should be interesting…
Yay Hungary! Yeah send another song with a depressing topic…2014=child abuse, 2015=world conflict. Seriously?
At least it is a good song, but they totally ditched Kati an Ív.
Even if the song is intended to be emotional, I feel such little emotion coming from the singers in this video that it pulls the song down a lot for me. Sorry Hungary!
Lovely singer and her song has really powerful lyrics. Hungary chooses a song with a deeper meaning two years in a row. Melody could have been more dynamic, though, and thus make a larger impact. But I guess that in the right mood, this song could make one shiver (in a good way).
This song WILL DO WELL in Vienna.Watch me.A lot of youngsters are writing that this is boring and bla bla.Kati Wolf would have been flopping if Hungary would sent her, but thank good they didn’t.This song will work on the night.Its catchy beautiful lyrics, very well sang and simple.It will stand out because of the message to.This song will be helped by the jury and don’t underestimate Europe guys.This song is just like Tome Dice in 2010 or yes The Common Linnets only this song is about the stupidity of wars.I actually see this going to top 10 for Hungary.Its… Read more »
The song nice, yes, but she has no emotions on stage, that’s boring and it will be the break for a snack during ESC.
I think Adam Szabo was the right choice, but that’s how Hungary decided and there is nothing we can do, hopefully they won’t regret.
Good luck in the semis Hungary, after all this seem like it’s going to be war for nothing, nothing more than 11th place
well. it was not my favorite one (passed had the best song, altough not the best performance, and I loved Other Planet), but this will be a contender: simple, direct, diferente because it’s calm and, finally, she’s beautiful. Nicole at 2015. No; at this moment Estonia is leading; then Italy, Hungary and now, Slovenia are contenders – lets also wait for Spain AND gERMANY ….
Speaking of ballads, France’s live version is out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wwmElQ2UpY and it sounds phenomenal!!! And a new slight change to the notes at the end of the song makes it end with a bang too! 🙂
This is not just another ballad. This is a ballad that sends a powerful message especially with the current events right now. Even Boggie herself said that’s the purpose of her song. She did not just enter A Dal submitting a generic ballad, otherwise, she wouldn’t have considered it in the first place. This is probably the best out of all of Hungary’s entries so far. This will definitely advance to the finals. No doubt.
Ladies & gentleman, welcome to Balad Song Contest 2015!
To me this isn’t “just another ballad”, the message is so current, relevant and different, it’s not about overcoming heartbreak or empowerment like 90% of ESC ballads. I think it will strongly resonate with viewers and have high placement in the final. It doesn’t hurt that she’s very pretty and has great live vocals either.
Am i the only one who thinks it is just a pretentious song? Hungary lost a great occasion to be represented by a really high-quality song of Iv. What a letdown. Even Kati would be a better choice.
When I heard this 2 things came to mind: Croatia 1993 mingled with Hungary 1994 but I will say that melodically wise it does not wow me and to be fair enough the lyrical content sounds uninspired and too cliche. There are way better songs about peace and unity in the world than what this one has to offer. Plus: I wish this was in Hungarian because her English is not that good and she sounds too nervous on stage. I also wish she was all alone on stage … not a fan of he whole choir around her.
Wiwi poll results are wrong, again, lol! I can’t help but giggle each time it happens.
Anywho….as for Boggie, congrats to her. Who knows, perhaps the song could pull a Nicole 1982 and do really well (perhaps not win, but have Hungary in the top 10 for a consecutive year). Preferred Kati but I sense the song wasn’t for everybody. At least she made the final.
Not an awful song, but it’s a really sleepy one (just pointing it out that the Dutch sent a sleepy one last year and look what happened), I reckon this sticks to the semi which isn’t that good after 2 years of good songs.
Yes! At least Hungary got it right tonight.
Congratulations, Boggie! You were my favourite from the start and I am so happy for you! Your song moved me and I hope it will move all Europe in May.
i love the political message this sends
that being said, it’s nowhere near passed
mesmerize was great
this is alright
not a bad result though, and boggie is super charismatic
Bad choice. This song has absolutely NOTHING different from any other ballads. Adam Szabo would have been a better choice.
I wanted Mesmerize so badly. I will listen to it over and over.
Another country with bad entry. Hungary was my fav last year.
I’m not feeling this song, but with it’s meaning I bet it will do decently in Vienna.
It’s a cute song, and performing in the second half of the semi-final might help. But other than that, I can’t see this cracking the top 10 like Hungary has been doing the past 2 years.
I’m very surprised that neither Kati or Iv made it to the Superfinal.
However, I’m delighted that Boggie won. She was my favourite from the start 🙂
It’s not bad, I just don’t feel like the song goes anywhere for me
No, They didn’t. If Farendaidt win in Germany, Hungary will flop
