Hungary: A Dal 2018 candidates revealed

The 30 candidates were announced earlier today during a press conference. More details about the upcoming shows in January/February were revealed.

It is already a tradition and a fact that A Dal proves to be a very successful tool for Hungary’s music business and charts as well as for the Eurovision Song Contest. From 2012 onwards, since the broadcaster created the format, the country has always made it to the grand final of the contest. This season is not different and MTVA called for submissions setting up its deadline on the 20th of November, thus the internal panel had such a difficult task when it comes to picking the acts that will perform during the live shows in 2018, fighting for the ticket that will lead one of them to represent Hungary in Lisbon.
