A Dal 2017

From 30 entries, 18 semi-finalists will compete at A Dal 2017, Hungary’s national selection for Eurovision 2017. But of those 18, only one will be heading to Kyiv in May. To help you make an informed decision on who to pay attention to, the Wiwi Jury – our in-house panel of music unprofessionals – will preview and review each of this year’s acts. We’re ready to pick our favourite for Hungary!

Our jury for this edition consists of 17 jurors who come from Australia, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Finland, Morocco, New Zealand, Portugal, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States. Each juror assesses each song independently, and awards each song a score from 0 to 10. Before calculating the Wiwi Jury verdict, we drop the highest and lowest scores to reduce potential bias and outliers.

We’ll be unrolling these one by one over the coming weeks. You can read the completed reviews by clicking on the song title.
