The participants of A Dal 2017, the Hungarian Eurovision national selection, have been officially announced today during a press conference.
More than 300 entries were submitted for the local competition. It was then down to a ten member jury to select the 30 best artists.
The list includes several singers who have already participated in previous years, including Benji, Olivér Berkes, Gigi Radics and more. András Kállay Saunders represented Hungary as a solo act in 2014 with “Running”, but now he also appears on the list along with his band.
There will now be three quarter finals starting on 14 January, followed by two semi finals before the Hungarian representative for Kijev is decided at the A Dal 2017 Final on 18 February. The result will be decided by four jurors.
