30 contenders for Hungary’s A Dal!

As in previous years, Hungary has chosen to use the national final format of A Dal to select their Eurovision act. This year, 30 acts have been selected, and each song, plus the jury was announced in a press conference in a club in Budapest.

The first show of A Dal will be broadcast on the 14th of January next year, and the final will be on the 18th of February. The show will be broadcast on Duna TV in Hungary, and the winning song will be chosen through a mixture of televote and jury vote. The jury consists of:
