After three heats and two semi-finals, the eight acts who’ll compete in the grand final of Hungary’s A Dal have been decided. But who should win the ticket to Tel-Aviv?

The eights finalists will compete in the grand final this Saturday. But before then, we want to know what you think.

Who is your favorite act in the A Dal final? Listen to all eight acts below, then vote in our poll. Standard rules apply: you can vote for as many of the acts as you’d like. You can only vote ONCE — so make that vote count!

Acoustic Planet – “Nyári Zápor”

The award-winning buskers have advanced with massive fanfare to the grand final, topping semifinal one with 45 points.

Fatal Error – “Kulcs”

The colorful rockers were let down by the juries, but not by the public, who’ve pushed them through via the televote.

Bogi Nagy – “Holnap”

The 16-year-old songstress took her cuteness to another level, and scored 42 points in semifinal two.

Gergő Oláh – “Hozzád Bújnék”

Well Gergő’s presence can be interpreted as a plot twist, since he’s replacing Petruska, who was expelled over plagiarism allegations, which he denies. He scored 41 points in the second semifinal.

Joci Pápai – “Az Én Apám”

Hungary’s Eurovision 2017 star topped the second semifinal with 45 points.

Gergő Szekér – “Madár, Repülj!”

The change in the staging has improved the performance of the young singer, who placed second in semifinal two.

The Middletonz – “Roses”

András Kállay-Saunders and his buddy Slashkovic were in the hands of the public in semifinal one, and the televote didn’t let them down.

Bence Vavra – “Szótlanság”

The former ByTheWay singer was the surprise qualifier of semifinal one, with 42 points.

Who should win Hungary’s A Dal 2019?

THE MIDDLETONZ – ” ROSES “

Any song in Hungarian is what I want to see win A Dal (And of course, it has to be good as well). 🙂

Althought Hungary broke my heart several times during their selection this year so now all my top 3 (Konyha, Petruska and Berkes Oliver) is out due to different reasons, it still managed somehow to keep its NF pretty strong. I like 6 of the 8 songs from it. I think it’s time to finally share my thoughts on all of them. 1. (4th of the 30) Szeker Gergo – Madar, repulj 9.4/10 Love the message of the lyrics, love the rap part, love the pan-flute, love the final key change, love the way the singer looks and talks, love the… Read more »

Literally all of my Top 5 from Hungary’s A Dal have been eliminated before this stage, except for Joci. The word “frustrated” does not even begin to express my emotions about this competition. (If I could cancel it, I would.)

I’ll bite. Besides the obvious Oliver Berkes, who were the others?

The list said (as of January 28, going from recorded videos only):
1. Oliver Berkes
2. Joci Pápai (still there, and I hope he wins)
3. Leander Kills
4. DENIZ
5. Petruska (before the disqualification, obviously)

After that were The Sign and YesYes, and then admittedly some of the finalists were in my top 10 – The Middletonz, Gerg? Oláh and Bogi Nagy.

I can’t really recall any of my top 5 being in the final in any recent edition of A Dal, but I keep watching it, and we actually end up with something I like every second year! 🙂

Anything but Fatal Error.
Middletonz, Széker or Nagy would be the more exciting choices though, I think.

I think the jury’s “chosen 4” for the final will be Joci Pápai, Gergö Széker, Acoustic Planet and Bogi Nagy. The Hungarian audience doesn’t seem to care about the latter two though, so the winner is probably Joci or Gergö. I’m fine with both 🙂

Every boy across Hungary her age will televote for Bogi because she’s capable of winning.

I am all for Middletonz but I know the juries are going to snub them, so my next choice will be Joci.

As much as I love Joci, this year I root for Gergo Szekér. Please, choose him, Hungary! And thank you for some great songs, again <3

Well If I’m right (Disclaimer: I might be wrong) then Germany should be be the next to declare their entry since Unser Lied für Israel is on the 22nd of February. Other things to mention: Darude releases his third UMK song on the 21st of Feb, and on the 23rd of Feb we should have Ukraine, Hungary, Lithuania and Denmark officially select their entry for Eurovision. Also on the 23rd Sweden has Melodifestivalen Deltävling 4 and Portugal has Festival da Canção – Semi-final 2. Serbia has semi 1 of Beovizija on the 27th of Feb. On the 28th Eliot’s song… Read more »

That’s a lot in one weekend, can’t wait! Also, let’s hope some internally selected songs will be released unexpectedly. Otherwise we’ll have more than one released every day in March and I’m not sure I can handle that.

The Middletonz will do it and I hope the jury will do the same.

y’all wantin joci are boring….. if u can’t top your previous entry then don’t even show up. and this song is miles below origo. instead of going for what u know give others a chance.

Jessie

I agree 100% i also think Roses isn’t better than Running.

roses is pure noise, the only good thing the a dal jury did this year is giving it low scores sksksk

Very good point on Roses, asa well as on Joci.

Well although Middletonez might be the fan favourites they are not going to win as they only slipped through to the final on the back of the public televotes…
Joci for the win again!

One of the worst finals. The only winner is Roses in my opinion.

I have to say I am proud to be Hungarian. I often disagreed with the decision of the jury, but after all I think this is one of the strongest NF in Europe.

Btw, The Middletonz or Joci Pápai.

You have the full right to be proud indeed.

I don’t wanna see Andras coming back with this mess.
And Joci have had better songs than this one.
I’m rooting for new faces.

As Wiwi’s are not involved, the best will win. I lke many of the entries. I voted for Joci back then. Good luck to all!

An awesome national selection this year in Hungary. I don’t agree with the system of A Dal, but this final is OK. I hope Joci to qualify for the superfinal, if he does, it’s very possible that he win the contest.

Send Joci Pápai and you have my vote, Hungary. What a beautiful and atmospheric song. We need this in Eurovision

Sabrina

It says a lot about A Dal that even after a lot of questionable decisions by the jury it will still have 8 good acts in the final. Honestly don’t know who I want to win. The Middletonz and Acoustic Planet were my favorites from the start, Szekér and Bence’s songs grew a lot on me and I love Joci, even if I think he would need something more impressive to top his result with “Origo”.

Katariina
Guest
Katariina

The jury eliminated all the good songs (which is why A Dal needs major reworking, all those songs had massive televoting appeal but if the jury doesn’t like them they have no chance of winning). I guess out of this I like Fatal Error and Joci Pápai. I wouldn’t be mad if the Middletonz won but I’m not a huge fan. The others would all be the first Hungarian entry since 2009 that I wasn’t supporting.

I’m rooting for The Middletonz and Szekér Gergo. But if they both in the top4, my votes will go to The Middletonz. Btw, I love Joci’s and Bence’s songs too. I was so mad about our jury during the heats and semis, but in the end 4 songs from my top5 are in the final. (Yesyes was the 5th one.) I don’t know how did it happen, but if one of them win, I’ll be satisfied. 🙂

Wouldn’t mind seeing Joci Papai back at Eurovision. I quite liked him in 2017 and kind of had a weird attraction to him.
Hungary has quite a strong final though. This could be good.

Polegend Godgarina

well my favorite is nyari zapor, but madar repulj would probably give hungary the best result out of this selection

Gergo Szeker. We need more songs with ethno elements in the contest.

Fatal error 🙂 The best song. And ESC 2019 needs some rock. After some golden lost opportunities in the NFs. My 2nd place is “Rozes”

Colin

All 8 songs are at least decent, but Gergo Szeker is a clear winner for me. 10/10 song, possibly my whole contest winner, alongside Monika Marija. So, Saturday will be either a really great day for me, or a really sad one.

Briekimchi

Would be a great winner but not sure if he is a clear winner. There’s still too much quality elsewhere in this final for me to say that one of them should absolutely win it outright.

Joci must win. Incredible performance, moving song. The changes make it even better. Middletonz would be a disaster. Overall standard is very good however.

The Middletonz for me.

I know the chances are hella thin but if Bogi Nagy wins that would be the best plot twist ever.

Polegend Godgarina

the fact that there’s a solo female in hungary’s final is a plot twist already
