In Hungary, A Dal 2013 seems to be a must to see event this Saturday. Tune in on the official Eurovision web TV stream at 20:15 CET and find out who will get the ticket to the Eurovision Song Contest 2013. There are at least five acts favourite to win this national final!
The hosts, Gabor and Eva opened the show! The jury is the same as in the preliminary heats and the Semifinals, with Csaba Walko (Compact Disco), Magdi Ruzsa (Eurovision 2007), Viktor Rakonczai (Eurovision 1997), Jeno Csiszar (Radio anchor) and Philip Rakay (programme director).
01. Tamas Vastag – Holnaptol
Tamas is starting on a bench. He is wearing a dark classy suit and is accompanied by four backing singers. The ballad is ok and his vocals are really good. Good performance overall.
02. Ildikó Keresztes – Nem akarok tobbe jatszani
A good ballad now with some electronic influences, two backing singers, a piano and two violins. The vocal performance is absolutely perfect. Great performance!
03. András Kallay-Saunders – My baby
The staging is just like in the Semifinals with the hearts in the background, four backing singers and a violin. The vocal performance is really good but the song is forgetable, a bit retro.
04. Gigi Radics – Ugy faj
The big favourite of the evening! Gigi is wearing a fantastic black dress. I also like the background with trees and birds. The vocal performance is perfect and it fits well with this modern ballad. Now some Green Room reactions are taken!
05. Gergo Racz – Csak allj mellem
A good ballad this one. Gergo is more casualy dressed. He is accompanied by four backing singers. The vocal performance is ok.
06. Szilvi Agardi & Denes Pal – Sziveddel lass
The duo is singing a great ballad. They are both dressed in white. This could be a dark horse. Probably the best performance after Gigi.
07. Laura Cserpes – Elj pont ugy
An amazing ballad! I think this edition of A Dal must be the best NF for great ballads. Laura is wearing an angelic white dress and so are the girls in the backing. The white smoke gives it a Eurovision feeling.
08. ByeAlex – Kedvesem
This sounds a bit gimmick or is it just the staging? They only have one backing singer. The performance is quite good but the staging and the song are just bland.
Again, Green Room reactions are taken! The four qualifiers from the jury to the Superfinal are:
Andras Kallay-Saunders – 46
Gigi Radics – 44
Tamas Vastag – 22
ByeAlex – 16
The televoting lines are now open. You can vote from any country sending an SMS to +36 30 80 80 888 containing the ID of the song you want to vote for:
Tamas Vastag: 17
Andras Kallay-Saunders: 20
Gigi Radics: 29
Now we have an interesting Interval Act. Csaba Walko together with MR Szimfonikusok are singing a symphonic version of “Sound of our hearts”, the Hungarian entry for Eurovision 2012. A video message from Loreen was just showed! Anti Fitness Club is performing a rock version of “Euphoria”. Really interesting moment!
ByeAlex will represent Hungary in Eurovision 2013 with “Kedvesem”. Really shocking result!
