On Saturday Hungary staged the final heat of A Dal 2019. Another six artists booked their place in the semi-finals. Others weren’t so lucky. Kyra finished dead last with 28 points with her song “Maradj Még”.
And the sting of defeat was still echoing in her mind a day later, as she took to social media and shared her thoughts on her short A Dal journey.
After thanking her team, family and boyfriend for all the support and for sharing the experience, she went on to discuss what actually happened inside MTVA studios.
“It wasn’t clear for many people why I had vocal issues during the performance, well.. two days before the performance I got some viral infection and completely lost my singing voice, and although I’ve tried everything, I couldn’t bring it back. So this has failed, I accept it. But how could God, or my fate, or anyone else want me to be humiliated in front of an entire country, with laughter? (…) Then I found out overnight that…that this all happened so that I could wake up and realize that I don’t need to compete! Nor do I need four people putting me in my place.”

That’s pretty harsh criticism, y’all! She was not happy with how the jury reacted to her. If you speak Hungarian you can see it all rather clearly. But for those of you who don’t, let me explain….
First, Miklós Both did his usual rounds of digging into the lyrics, saying that he gets the story of a possessive girlfriend driving her boyfriend away. However, he would love to know where the fear portrayed in the lyrics is coming from. It was a very in-depth analysis, but perhaps slightly over-the-top? This isn’t a poetry contest.
Then Feró Nagy chimed in. After stating that she sang amazingly, he began discussing Kyra’s postcard clip shown before the performance, where the experienced singer said that her message is that people should stop being jealous, and that relationships should be about freedom, instead of captivity. Feró completely disagreed with her, making a joke about fellow jury member Misi Mező that actually made the rest of the panel laugh. He said “you’re telling some huge truths that have no real basis”. A harsh, and maybe unprofessional criticism, but was that humiliating? That’s up for every single one of you to judge.
Did you like Kyra’s entry? Did you agree with the jury? Or do you think Feró went too far and humiliated Kyra? Sound off in the comments below!
