The first semi-final of A Dal has taken place in Hungary, where nine artists performed their potential Eurovision songs once again.
From each of the two semi-finals, there will be four qualifiers, meaning that we will see a final of 8 acts. The voting took place over two rounds. The jury consisting of Lilla Vincze, Feró Nagy, Miklós Both and Misi Mező gave their points on each performance mixed with a public vote, and the top 3 point scorers qualified to the semi-finals. In the second stage of voting, the Hungarian public were given the chance to save one of the remaining acts.
Here are the results:
- USNK – Posztolj – 34 points
- yesyes – Incomplete – 35 points
- Konyha – Százszor visszajátszott – 38 points
- The Sign – Ő – 37 points
