Six intense weeks of live shows, three heats, and two semi-finals come down to one grand final of A Dal 2018. Tonight night eight acts will compete for the golden ticket to represent Hungary at Eurovision 2019.

Earlier this week, we asked wiwibloggs readers to vote in our poll. After counting 2,119 votes, we can reveal that The Middletonz are your favorite to win tonight’s grand final of A Dal 2019.
Eurovision 2014 star András Kállay-Saunders’ new project The Middletonz won the poll. They’ve earned nearly half of the votes — 804 to be precise, which makes up 37.94% of the total vote.
The first three places are separated by roughly 200 points one from another, which means that with 550 votes it was 2017 winner Joci Pápai who secured the second position (25.96%).
Meanwhile in third place we find Gergő Szekér with 315 votes (14,87%).
 

The other five acts haven’t had as much support. In fact, they were very close to each other in terms of who received votes. Your fourth spot went to metal band Fatal Error, who earned 115 votes (5.43%), while fifth place goes to buskers Acoustic Planet with 98 votes (4.62%).

With only 6 votes separating him from the fifth place, it’s Bence Vavra in the sixth spot with 92 votes (4.34%). He’s closely followed by Bogi Nagy with 82 votes (3.87%). Returning act Gergő Oláh rounds out the list with his 63 votes (2.97%).

Full results: Who should win Hungary’s A Dal 2018?

  1. The Middletonz – “Roses” 37,94% (804 votes)
  2. Joci Pápai – “Az Én Apám” 25,96% (550 votes)
  3. Gergő Szekér – “Madár, Repülj!” 14,87% (315 votes)
  4. Fatal Error – “Kulcs” 5,43% (115 votes)
  5. Acoustic Planet – “Nyári Zápor” 4,62% (98 votes)
  6. Bence Vavra – “Szótlanság” 4,34% (92 votes)
  7. Bogi Nagy – “Holnap” 3,87% (82 votes)
  8. Gergő Oláh 2,97% (63 votes)

I haven’t heard it but any song written by Lise Cabble I trust (two of Denmark’s greatest entries to her credit, including their last winner!)

Well done Hungary. Joci was fantastic. Very good decision. Final for Hungary again.

I hope he stays in the semi final. Awful song. Just like his previous one. He’s utterly boring and untalented.

Well done, Joci! Guess we are getting a returner after all. Just not the one folks expected.

While i wanted either The Middletonz or Gerg? Szekér, Joci still has a very good entry, and he can really perform live. The televoters picked the best out of the avaliable options, so I’m happy.

I’m not watching it (Duna’s player really hates me), but according to Wikipedia we’ll have Joci, Acoustic Planet, Bence and Bogi Nagy on the final round. I guess this means Joci will come back to Eurovision?

Roses is overrated and hopefully won’t even make the superfinal

I don’t think Middletonz have a chance to win – not that I don’t like their song, it’s actually one of my favourites, but it barely qualified from the semifinal. Hungarian juries won’t give it enough points – they have other favourites.

Last year, juries only gave AWS 8 points in total in the final but it was enough for it to go to the superfinal which was 100% televote. So you never know what might happen. Plus they were just 4 points off the winner so they just have to perform to their best, hoping that the jury’s’ favorites falter. Hungary need to make the system 50/50, juries have WAY too much power.

But AWS qualified to the final (from the semifinal) right away – not through second round of voting like The Middletonz. But you’re right – anything can happen. I also agree with you that the jury have too much power.

Will there be any problems with the rapper from The Middletonz. I mean he is Iranian so maybe they will reject him to enter Israel? Sorry for not knowing how this is. I was never in Israel and I don’t know how the situation would be in the airport…

Israel accepts all nationalities, it is Iran and the other countries who have it in their law to not accept Israeli citizens or even anyone who has visited Israel.

It does slightly feel like calling an act a “favourite” in ESC 2019 is like marking them with a curse.

It’ll be interesting to see if The Middletonz break this trend or fall to it like all the rest. I think they’re really good, it’s a solid entry in a genre that doesn’t always get represented at ESC, and I also really like Andras Kallay-Saunders, but I’m not convinced they’re going to win. At least A Dal has a really good mix of entries to choose from. Good luck to all!

I love that song and hence I’m pretty sure it won’t win since all my favourites have been failing this season…

What’s with all the hype with “Roses” ??? Rap never do well at ESC. If this qualify it’s only that than most of the other songs are bad as well this year.
Go Joci !!

The song itself though is the best song in the selection. It’s actually really good, I downloaded it 🙂 Also Joci had rap in his eurovision song and came in the top 10

It’s about time to have rap in the contest! But I’d take Madár, Repülj!
