The line-up for the final of Hungary’s A Dal 2016 is almost complete. Last week saw the first four acts qualify from semi-final one. Tonight’s second semi-final will see nine more acts compete, but only four can make it through to the 27 February final. Who deserves to be a finalist? We asked you earlier in the week, and the results are in.
After counting a total of 492 votes, we can confirm that Freddie is your favourite to win this evening’s show. The “Pioneer” singer comfortably topped the poll, scooping up 218 votes or 44.31% of all votes available.
Coming a distant second, we have Olivér Berkes & Andi Tóth. The “Seven Seas” duo managed to get 71 votes or 14.43% of all votes cast.

Only four will make it through to the final. An initial round of voting will see three qualifiers progress, as determined by a mixture of jury and viewer scores. The fourth finalist will be chosen during a second round of 100% public voting. Viewers at home will be able to vote by SMS, via the app or online. Those of you outside Hungary will also be able to vote on the official A Dal website.
