HOW TO WATCH
20:25 CET: We will get to know who’ll represent Hungary. A Dal started with 30 acts, and now the winner will be chosen out of the eight remaining finalists. Watch it live on Eurovision.tv!
Depresszió – Csak a zene
So the competition has started with the hard sounds. The title of their song is Csak a zene or in English Just the music. The band members are all in casual wear, but you really can not expect of hardrockers to be in tuxedos, right? They got very positive reactions both from the jury and the public in the studio.
Bogi – We All
The youngest competitor is up next and it is Bogi with her song We all. She is wearing a simple t-shirt with rainbow balloon but no shoes. Vocally she sounds perfect, but her hair is all over the stage. Damn that electricity. There were two backing vocals, a guitar and piano player on the stage with her. Again there were good reactions from the public and jury.
Kállay Saunders – Running
The winner of our poll is ready for his performance. His song is Running. It is Kallay-Saunders. Red and white lights are all over the stage. There is also a young girl playing the piano. He sounds even better then in the studio version. Well done! Two faceless dancers just came on stage. Until now, the biggest and longest applause. I think that this is finally his year. If he wins there is no doubt that he will be one of the hot favorites in Copenhagen.
We are back in Green room,where Levente is interviewing the first two competitors – Depresszio and Bogi. Two funny videos were showed. Depresszio band members were watching a soap and Bogi was pretending that she doesn’t know to sing well and not knowing that. In the other part of the room Krista is talking with Viktor Kiraly and we saw him singing Euphoria, Waterloo and Kedvesem. Beside talking with him HoneyBeast is also there and we saw a video of them playing and singing in the metro. Up next New Level Empire with The Last One.
New Level Empire – The Last One
On the screens we see the Hungarian Parliament. Lead singer, Zola also sounds perferct. Until now everyone really deserved to be here tonight. And finally some good stage effects – fire and fireworks. Other members of the band were playing the drums, keyboards and we also had a female DJ. Comparing to reactions Kallay had, there were mild. His styling is very urban – texas jeans, white t-shirt with deep V neck line and a black leather jacket.
Dénes Pál – Brave New World
Brave New World by Pal Denes is the next competing song. On the screens first was a satellite over the Earth and then all other planets were showed. Five backing vocals are with Pal on stage. He doesn’t sound so bad but his song is not so interesting so I don’t really know if it make many people to vote for him.
Fool Moon – It Can’t Be Over
Vocal group Fool Moon is performing sixth tonight. They all are in black suits with silver details, different on every band member. They all really sound good, but just remember how Latvia finished Athens and Witloof Bay in Düsseldorf. One of the jurors said that they should unite with shadow act that won Britain Got Talent – Attraction. Then would their performance be perfect.
Krista in back stage is talking with Pal and Kallay-Saunders. Again videos with their activity was showed. Pal was learning how to snowboard while Kallay had an acoustic performance. Levente is talking with Fool Moon now. In their video, they were wearing dresses and singing on the street. We are back to Krista who is now talking with ByeAlex. He is saying that his favorite tonight is Krista and that she should go to Copenhagen.
Viktor Király – Running Out Of Time
Viktor Kiraly is preparing for the stage. Running out of time is a very cheerful song, so the stage is colored like that and also hair of his female backing vocalists. If you could just see him you would also say that Viktor is having the best time of his self. Judging the reactions from the studio, winning song will have the word running in it’s title.
Honeybeast – A legnagyobb hős
The last competitor of the night is HoneyBeast. The lead singer Zsofi Tarjan is once again presenting her perfect vocal capabilities. Her outfit is not much changed – multilayer short black dress and a black hat with a veil and also a necklace with a heart pendant. Translated to English the title of their song is The biggest hero. During their performance stage was filled with golden lights and animations.
