BUDAPEST, HUNGARY – Few days before the oikotimes.com team arrives in Budapest for the grand final of A Dal 2015, the show through which Hungary will decide its participation for Vienna’s Eurovision Song Contest, we review the finalists and we invite you to listen and vote for the winner.
Gajer Balint – That’s How It Goes – A bit of jazz didn’t kill no one. Add a burlesque performance and it will be perfect for your eyes and ears. With his looks, final is guaranteed. And just like I said weeks ago, he is in final.
Boggie – Wars For Nothing – Yes it’s Boggie, not Bogi, they are two different persons. Well, we had so much songs that called for better world, for world without wars, for peace… I think you agree we don’t need another one. Well if we’re gonna have two Warriors in Vienna, since Armenian song is gonna be in same style, why don’t we have two of these also.
Kati Wolf – Ne Engedj El – She stayed in her style and as we heard her perform this song live, I have to say that her vocal capabilities have improved. As for the song, I believe that people will like it, and maybe even give Kati second chance to improve her previous score.Now I am sure that she is one of the top candidates.
Spoon – Keep Marching On – Typical boy band song. They look and sound cute, so there is no doubt that girls will vote for them, but honestly it’s nothing special, we’ve all heard songs like this many many times. I still stand with this opinion.
Mujahid Zoli – Beside You – One more emotional songs. It starts as a ballad, but with first chorus, the tempo gets up. His voice is very nice and goes along with song perfectly, no struggle at all. In my opinion it’s gonna be either him either Kati.
Adam Szabo – Give Me Your Love – At first it’s like any other ballad, but when you try to listen it with both of your ears, you’ll hear this song’s magic. He uses his voice in it’s full potential in second verse and it sounds so good. It’s still good for me, but I don’t see it winning.
Iv – Fire – Female singers in Hungary really know to rock the stage. If she doesn’t use pyrotechnics in her performance it would be a shame. Music a bit reminds me on Adele’s Rolling in the deep. All in all, it’s a very good song. There’s nothing I would add.
Passed – Mesmerize – A very flat, monotonous and boring song. I must wonder why did jury pick this song to compete. By the title, song should hypnotize you, but this song will do, is make you sleep it over. Biggest surprise of this years’ A Dal if you ask me. I never imagined to see this in the final.
