A few days ago, the Hungarian broadcaster opened public song submissions for their national selection show ‘A Dal’. Once again, MTVA will select their representative for the Eurovision Song Contest through a live show which will be made up of several rounds.
All interested singers and composers can send their applications until the 8th of November 2018 by filling the form available on the official website of the broadcaster. When the submission period is closed, a professional jury panel will shortlist the entries that will compete at the live shows of ‘A Dal 2019’. You can find the full set of rules here.
This will be the eighth edition of the popular television format that has selected every Hungarian Eurovision representative since 2012. It’s interesting to remember that Hungary hasn’t missed any Eurovision Grand Final since the introduction of ‘A Dal’ as the national selection show. As in previous editions, the winner of ‘A Dal 2019’ will be decided by a mix of a professional jury panel voting and televote.
The group AWS represented Hungary at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 with the song ‘Viszlát nyár’. The song, which was fully in Hungarian, reached the 21st place in the Grand Final.
