Fans will be able to have their say on Saturday. Starting at 19:30 CET, the initial participants of A Dal will compete for the votes of jurors and public alike. The results will decide who is moving on to the semi final rounds in a few weeks. If you love the songs, each can be downloaded now via many main platforms online, providing hours of musical entertainment from the Magyars.
The A Dal show and lineup recently received a tweak when Jetlag dropped out due to conflicts between schedules and Chase was brought in to replace them. Probably a good thing for Chase that he did not draw a spot in the first round and therefore has another week to prepare for his all important performance. You can read more about that scandalous event here.
