A Dal 2019 will be the eighth edition of the Hungarian national selection A Dal, which will select Hungary’s entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. The competition will consist of 30 entries competing in three heats, two semi-finals, and a final. The hosts are Bogi Dallos and Freddie. At the first press conference on 3rd December, 2018, MTVA announced the hosts, the jury, the 30 competing songs, and introduced the new logo of the show. The former symbol was in use since the inauguration of the contest, and every year they added the current year in the logo. The new one looks like a play button, or a plectrum, written in the inside A DAL 2019.
