Hungary 2017: Geoff reviews the finalists; vote in our poll
HUNGARY – Hungary will participate in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017. The local Media Services and Support Trust Fund (MTVA) and the Hungarian broadcaster Duna Media Service Provider will organise the national final A Dal 2017 in order to select the Hungarian entry for the 2017 contest in Kiev, Ukraine. A Dal 2017 will be the sixth edition of the Hungarian national selection A Dal, which will select Hungary’s entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2017. The competition will consist of 30 entries competing in three heats, two semi-finals, and a final. The hosts are Levente Harsányi, Krisztina Rátonyi, and Csilla Tatár. The final will take place on 18 February 2017 where the eight entries that qualified from the semi-finals will compete. The winner of the competition will be selected over two rounds of voting. In the first round, the jury determines the top four entries that will advance to the second round. The voting system for the four jurors will be different from the method used in the heats and semi-finals. Each juror will announce their scores after all songs had been performed rather than assigning scores following each performance, and the jurors will rank their top four entries and assign points in the following manner: 4 (lowest), 6, 8 and 10 (highest).
