Tonight Hungary decided its first four qualifiers for the grand final of A Dal. Gergö Oláh, Kállay Saunders Band, Petruska and Mushu secured a spot in the grand final on 27 February, where they will be joined by the four qualifiers from the second semi-final, to be held next week.

Gergö Oláh, Kállay Saunders Band and Petruska were selected by a combined jury and public vote, with Mushu winning a spot in the final from the public vote alone.

The four will head to the grand final in two weeks, where they will face the four qualifiers from next week’s semi-final, where hot favourite Freddie is a contender.

If Kallay Saunders Band goes to Eurovision, I think the staging will translate from the A Dal studio to Globen really well.

Poor Benji. 🙁 I like all the other qualifiers too, however.

I don’t see Petruska doing well in ESC… It’s a good song, but not that much to be the winner of the heat ahead Kallay and Gergo. I think Hungary would make a mistake if they select him before them and Freddie.

I’m glad Kallay got through, he came 3rd, 2 points behind the winner. He won the televote and was 3rd with the jury, 3 points behind the top score.

1st Petruska – 43 points (7)
2nd Gergo – 42 points (7)
3rd Kallay – 41 points (8)
4th Mushu – 39 points (7)
