A Dal Eurovision Hungary

It seems that the test of strength that is A Dal is back. Hungarian Broadcaster DUNA has today announced an exact facsimile of last year’s contest in terms of how they’ll pick the song that will finish halfway down the board in the final.  The songs are listed at the bottom with a couple of names and blasts from the past – Kallay Saunders being the most famous.

You can hear (very) short clips of each song online.

Now, to stop you lot asking questions during the SIX weeks this thing lasts for, this is how it works.
