ADAL 2019

Adal 2019Something old, something new. Familiar faces and first timers feature in the Eurovision selection announced yesterday by Hungarian broadcaster MTV.

The 2019 A Dal competition sees thirty performers out to convince both viewers and an 'expert' jury they have what it takes to represent Hungary at the Eurovision Song Contest. András Kállay-Saunders and Joci Pápai are out for another shot at the job, and the shows are once more presented by the (very tall) Freddie. He's joined on stage this time around by Bogi Dallos.

The jury members are Miklós Both, Misi Mező, Lilla Vincze and Feró Nagy. Their scores combine with text votes from the viewing audience.

A Dal 2019 starts on 19 January 2019. After three selection rounds and two semi-finals, the final takes place on 23 February 2019.
