I want to hear Hungarian again in Eurovision!

My absolute 1st pick would be:

Holdviola

Other styles I like of Hungarian songs:

One of the biggest losses for ESC ever imo! Had Hungary actually send this one in 2009 like planned, it would have totally been my #1 that year:

Renáta Tolvai could deserve a second chance I think, yes her performance in the NF was so-so, but her entry was robbed! This song would have been my #1 in ESC '12 had Hungary send it:

Original Czech ---
Informovali jsme vás o úspěšných kláních národních kol Eurovision Song Contest ve Švédsku a v Maďarsku. Maďarsko zakončilo svou cestu za interpretem sobotním finálovým kolem, ve kterém zvítězila skupina Compact Disco. Zvítězily však také vysílací společnosti – Maďarská televize a Duna World.
Semifinálová kola v Maďarsku sledovalo 822.000 a 968.000 diváků. Finálový přenos, který završil pouť za reprezentantem, sledovalo v průměru 1.015.000 párů očí. Pokud bychom však chtěli zaměřit pozornost na celkově na Maďary, národní kolo Eurovize zasáhlo celkově 2,5 miliónů diváků, kteří zapnuli tyto programy na dobu alespoň 1 minuty.
Statistiky však také neopomněly vyzdvihnout, která cílová skupina byla zasažena nejvíce. Mladých lidí, ve věku 15-24, bylo celkově 17 % z absolutních čísel.
Maďarská veřejnoprávní stanice je s těmito výsledky velmi spokojena a nechala se slyšet že příští rok národní kolo opět zopakují a rovnou anoncovala, že skupina Compact Disco usedne v porotcovském křesle.
Jak se tak zdá, zřejmě známe první zemi, která se zúčastní mezinárodní soutěže Eurovision Song Contest příští rok, v roce 2013 – a ještě neznáme ani všechny účastníky ročníku letošního.

--- English
We informed you of the successful national bike jousts Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden and Hungary. Hungary concluded the interpreter of his way for Saturday's finals round, in which the group won the Compact Disc. However, it also won broadcasters - Hungarian Television and Duna World.
Semifinal round in Hungary was watched 822,000 and 968,000 viewers. The final transfer is completed the journey to the representative, was watched by an average of 1,015,000 pairs of eyes. However, if we wanted to focus on the whole the Hungarians, the national round of the Eurovision hit 2.5 million total viewers who have turned these programs for at least 1 minute.
Statistics, however, also failed to highlight that the target group was affected the most. Young people aged 15-24 was 17% of the total absolute numbers.
Hungarian public broadcaster with these results are very satisfied and had to hear that next year's national round again and just repeated anoncovala that the group Compact Disc jury sits in the chair.
As it seems likely to know the first country to attend the international Eurovision Song Contest next year in 2013 - and yet we do not know all the participants of this year.

No hope for Crystal. They are on a seperate way (as a couple, too, but still friends). While Tibi has started a solo career, Kati has suspended her singing project (she says that she may return soon).

I would rather like to see high quality, even if it is not a winner song. We have good female jazz voices. (I liked Fábián Juli's entry this year very much.)

I would like to hear R'n'B or rock from a female singer. But not many quality candidates are on sight. Rúzsa Magdi is on of them, but i doubt she tries again. Maybe Radics Gigi(only 15!) will be a good R'n'B singer, but i don't think she's ready for 2013.

Some modern folk would be nice like Nox. Even though I like the ideas of Holdviola, their singer is not good enough. Furthermore they can't enter a folk song like Bánat utca or Erdő, erdő... they have to write their own songs.

On the language: "Dance With Me", "What about My Life?" or "Sound of Our Hearts" cries for English. On the other hand "Kinek mondjam el vétkeimet?" or "Forogj világ!" cries for Hungarian. Ballads are usually better in Hungarian. "Unsubstantial Blues" may have reached a good result also in Hungarian. Our biggest mistake was to sing "Candlelight" on a mixed language, there was much more in that song. Mixed language (or singing a few rows in Hungarian) rarely sounds nice. So don't decide the language before we hear the entry, but agree that we should not force our singers to sing in English.

Ballad in Hungarian! Folk or jazzy/rocky inspired one...

I still won't forgive Katya Tompos for dropping out in 2009, that song was just pure brilliance:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyes1pJprWU

Or something folky uptempo/midtempo (like NOX or Holdviola). I LUV Renata Tolvai's entry in 2012, unfortunately she was a weak live singer... but a song like that with a stronger singer!

It's not just about winning, this is a song contest where songs represent countries... it's not Anglovision Song Contest...

such a boring view on Eurovision really you have, sorry to say...

And it's not even as if they had amazing results in English anyways... And looking at the top. 10 of 2012, 50% were in native language or partly in native language... so your argument falls anyways since top. 10 is also VERY good.

Don't make fun about my "view" on ESC, i like ESC and its the half of my life. I like new pop music and english is just my favorite language. ENGLISH songs is what we play on the radios, in the north you would never hear "Suus" by Rona. But i like Suus and those songs. I like music and ESC.

I'm not making fun of it, but I just state my disagreement. But I don't want ESC to become a contest where everything sound the same like on radio...

And you're from Denmark, almost ALL local hits you have are in Danish.. so that's not even correct... also in Sweden more and more is in Swedish.

And I would be very surprised if most local hits in Hungary are in English, actually most are in Hungarian... and the ESC entry should represent THEIR music scene right?

I don't have anything against English, but this is not just a contest to showcase English and that culture in music only.

MTV, the Hungarian national broadcaster has informed that Hungary will be most likely competing at the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Malmo next May. An official announcement and confirmation regarding Hungary’s participation at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest is expected in due course.

Hungarian national broadcasting bodies MTVA and MTV have just revealed the rules for the 2013 participation at the Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö. They say in their press release that they were really happy with the ratings of around 2.5 million for last years national final A dal.

They will repeat the same format with semi-finals and a final, with a panel of judges consisting of Philip Rákay, intendant of the M1/M2 channels, Jenő Csiszár, radio host, Compact Disco singer Csaba Walkó and the composer Victor Rakonczai, with a fifth female member of the jury.

M1 channel will also broadcast both the semi-finals and the final live from Malmö.

Songs can be submitted until 20 December and the usual Eurovision rules apply. The songs in the national final will have to be sung in Hungarian, but the artists can attach an English version as well, and the broadcasters may decide to use them for promotional purposes. It is also stated that MTVA and MTV make the final decision on what language the Hungarian entry will be sung in Malmö. The participants also have to assure, that they will be available to take part fully in the Eurovision project and have no other commitments. MTVA and MTV also reserve the right to change the artist, the title of the song, the language and even the name of the artist or the band up until 5 days before the Eurovision Song Contest submission deadline.

The audio material can be submitted on CDs or DVDs, including promotional material of the artists as well as biographies in Hungarian and English, lyrics and the video, if available. A signed acceptance to the rules must also be enclosed. The address for the submissions is:

Eurovíziós Dalfesztivál, MTVA, 1037 Budapest, Kunigunda útja 64

Last year they had many nice songs in their national finals, semi-finals etc. But they chose one of the worst to represent them. I hope this year this won't happen again.

I love Hungarian language in songs and I'd like them to send something in Hungarian, but if they have something good in English I wouldn't mind. But not bland like 2012...

This 16-year-old girl that won the Hungarian Idol could be a good option, she has a nice voice!

Another nice option could be Saunders. I liked his song last year, but it was quite bland for ESC. I still listen to it, though. He could sing perfectly in English too, since he's half African American.

Love the language aswell and I prefer an entry in Hungarian for sure.

This one remains my fav from 'A Dal 2012' :

Several big names are aiming to represent Hungary in Malmo


Veca Janicsák, finalist of the first season of X Faktor expressed her wish to represent Hungary in Malmö.

Hien (Nguyễn Thanh Hiển) is a singer who was one of the finalists of the fourth season of Megasztár (Pop Idol) at the age of fourteen.

András Kállay-Saunders – the finalist of the fifth season of Megasztár (Pop Idol) who just missed out on the Final of A Dal this year by a few points, will be back again in 2013.

Tibor Gyurcsík was the finalist of the second season of X Factor in Hungary.

Gina Kiss impressed the preselection jury last year with her entry “Chasing Dreams

Bebe & The Change were originally selected in the top 20, and were thus chosen to take part in the national selection this year. Days before the national selection started, they got disqualified because their song “Fans Will Be Friends” was found out to have been released before the 1st of September, and thus breaks the rules of the Contest

Peti Puskás was one of the finalists of Megasztár in its third season.


Some other potential candidates are Linda & Viktor Király, Gigi Radics, Anti Fitness Club,

I know? But still, if they have a rule for their own selection saying it's compulsory for entries to be performed in native language, then it's very odd to just suddenly change to another language after the selection. Then it's more honest and logical to just open up the national selection for non-native languages aswell (not that it's something I'd like, but atleast it's not hypocritical).

The national final is tailored to a local audience and some broadcasters want all of the songs in their native language for purposes of producing such a program.

It's not hypocritical if it's in the rules and there is potential for it to go either way. It seems like it's the artist's choice in what language they ultimately want to perform.

In the national selection its compulsory to be in the national language because the target audience is the people of the country. In Eurovision, they can change to English because the taget audience for the song is not the people of their country, but the people of all the other countries in Europe. Seems logical to me.
But I do agree the NF's should be mixed.

I find it hypocritical, and I disagree about the target. The purpose is to represent your country, if an entry has to be tailor-made for the European audience then it has little to do with the country it represents imo.

And no, I don't want English or non-native languages in the national selections, so we don't agree on that, I just find it less hypocritical if the purpose is to translate the entries anyways. I think viewers should get what they vote for, not something else.

I hope they do, 2011 was decent but a bit generic, I didn't like 2012 at all though.

During the 00's I just liked their '05 entry, and in the 90's I only liked their debut one... so I'm far from convinced.

To this date I'm still mourning the fact that we didn't get this fab song as the Hungarian entry back in '09, it would have actually been one of my all time favorite ESC songs had she not withdrawn it (of course in Hungarian version! Because I'm afraid they might have slaughtered it with translating it if they'd actually went with it):

2009 was the only recent entry I haven't liked from Hungary. The last 2 years have been very good, so as they send more good music, I'll be happy.

Magdi Rusza represented Hungary with Unsubstansial Blues back in 2007. I find the voting pattern for this entry rather interesting. The nordic countries (or call it block if you like) do tend to vote for each other - and indeed, in 2007 Sweden were the favourite amongst the other nordic countries (and hardly got any votes from non-nordic countries).
Also Serbia scores very high in the north: with an average of 9 points from the 5 nordic countries. But then again, Serbia did very well all over Europe that year.
The third nordic favourite was Unsubstantial Blues; actually receiving an average of 8,4 points from the 5 countries. And 1/3 of Hungarys total votes that year were rewarded from the 5 Nordic countries (32,8%).
On the other hand; Bulgarian entry Voda (that ended up in 5th place) only received 5 points from the nordic block that same year - all 5 points from Finland.

I find the 2007 nordic voting a very good example of the similar taste we tend to share in the nordic countries.

You dont like the blues and soul genre dont you? Otherwise you would love it. It finished 2nd in the semi and 9th in the final, in a year without juries, for a reason!

No, it's not the genre. I like soul though, blues may not be a fav genre of mine but I judge songs not genres mostly.

What reason? Ending up high on the scoreboard in ESC is note necessarily a measure of quality or whether the song is good or bad. But, this is of course my personal taste, if the majority liked it then that's their decision.

I understand that's your taste but it's really surprising that you think that this song doesn't have quality, and that you rate something like NOX above it. She kind of oversang it in the final, but it was still damn good! :D

Well, that's the beauty of music right? Taste is subjective and personal and one person's favorite can be another person's horror :lol:

There's no doubt about NOX being better for me, Magdi's entry has very little to do with Hungary while NOX was ethno-pop in Hungarian which imo on paper is always preferable in a contest where entries ought to represent their countries.

BUT, a song need to be good for me to like, I'm not liking anything just because it's in native language or ethno-inspired over something that is not, but in this case NOX had by far the better entry... imo it's the best Hungarian entry to date by miles, but I do admit that it was performed vocally weak (although the performance itself was pretty good).

Had Katya Tompos been going to Hungary in 2009 though, that would have been my favorite Hungarian entry to date (if it stayed in its original version that is), and that song is a complete different genre than NOX, and way closer to Magdi's genre... so it's not a genre problem for me.

I hope for a great Hungarian entry in 2013. In 2012 I was disappointed with their choice, they had better options in their selection. Renata Tolvai was my favorite, but that was also a case of bad live vocals... more so than in the NOX case :(, but as a song it was more or less what I want to hear in ESC... not some American blues or ballads that has zero connection to the country it represents...

I agree with you that ethno songs are a great contribution to the ESC, but if I like an american blues ballad, even if not ethno at all, I'll support it over the ethno song I dont like.
With that said, it's obvious that this subjectivity is the beauty of music, and ESC, dont get me wrong :lol:
I did like NOX, but it doesn't come close to Unsubstantial Blues in my opinion :D
I agree that Katya Tampos entry was indeed great. Very great actually, could have even finished int he top 5 , and it would certainly do better than that horrible generic cheesy song Hungary sent in 2009, whose name I dont even remember.
And yes, I hope for a great Hungarian entry in 2013, they deserve it, as MTV seems to be caring a lot with the ESC later, and it would show that central-european countries can do well.
Wow, I'm listening to Katya Tampos song for the first time, that is really great! It's very close to Magdi Rusza's style, even Carolina Af Ugglas whom I love!
Let's hope something like that can come from Hungary, or another coutnry for that matter this year :D Why did she withdraw?

Well, don't get me wrong either, I'm not supporting a bad song from a genre I prefer/like in ESC over a better song from a genre I'm not that big of a fan of, it all comes down to the best song for me aswell, just to make that clear :)

Well, the Hungarian selection 2009 was kinda messy:

They first internally selected some AWFUL Disney-pop song which turned out to be the same song as the Big Brother Sweden 2004 theme song :lol:,

...so they had to pick another entry... so they choose Katya's entry (also internally) as their second choice, but then she declined because of her schedule. Zoli's 'Dance with me' became their third and final internal choice, which was an English version of his single 'Tánclépés'.

I do agree though that considering that they withdrew for 7 years, and then did some short withdrawals even after their comeback in 2005, with 'A Dal' it seems atleast that they are finally putting some effort, so I do have hopes for Hungary although I wasn't convinced last year at all.

But you see what I meant with Katya? That song is not that far away genre-wise from Magdi's entry (and yeah I totally agree it has a Caroline af Ugglas vibe aswell), but I still liked that one while I didn't like Magdi's at all.. so it all comes down to the certain song and not genre.

Oh I so agree with you :( :( What a song and what a voice! She withdrew cause she is firstly an actress and she played in numerous theatres. :?
If you wonder why she's dressed like that in the picture; the song is a soundtrack of a movie, and within the movie it was performed in a musical in which she was playing a prostitute. The man in the audience is her (character's) father who originally was against her performing.

And MTV made a stupid decision too: after Kátya withdrew, the composer wanted the song to be performed by another singer, but MTV refused that and chose another entry instead. That singer would have been Ildikó Keresztes (more famous than Kátya, currently a mentor on Hungarian x-factor), she released her version on her album the next year; well imo it's not as good as Kátya's version, but still would have been better than Zoli. :)

Actually MTV are taking seriously ESC since 2011. (new ppl in charge is the chore reason)
Then they didnt have time to do an NF but after Kati's entry was picked, they took very seriously the promotion. Well in Hungary it had its good consequences, as the song became #1 and ESC was a big rating success.
Last year's NF was a big success too ratingvise, also they managed to have many established names enter (fortunately it seems that this year too), and around half of the entries charted. Biga's song went to #1, Compact Disco peaked at #2 and they also released a compilation album with the 20 songs that went #1 too.

As I said Im a fan of ESC since 2007 (watched it in 2005 too) and Im very happy to see that ESC in Hungary came from being virtually unknown to become so popular in the last few years. :mrgreen:

I can rarely see anything normal on that channel. (Oh well, m2 is recently all about kids, but probably because their school holidays.)

Dalriada's song's based on a Hungarian folk song (Aki dudás akar lenni) while Hien decided not to enter because of the language-rule.

Two entrants, Edina Szirtes 'Mókus' and The [hated] Tomorrow had to withdraw for their entry breaking the 1st September rule. :/

They'll be replaced by Mónika Hoffman's "Hullócsillag" and Odett's "Ne engedj el".

The schedule was confirmed like this:
10 songs will be performed in each of the heats. 3 will qualify thanks to the juries, 3 thanks to televoters.
9 songs will be performed in each of the 2 semi finals. There 2 will qualify thanks to juries, and 2 thanks to televoters, leading to a final of 8 songs. There the jury will first pick the best four, and televoters can choose the winner among those.

Mohamed Fatima's song has won me over by now. It makes me wanna dance xwoo rácz gergő is also cute like he was in VIP and his song is fair enough.
Right now I could sorta imagine someone like Odett winning. But it makes me a bit uneasy to see how much support Radics Gigi is receiving for that bland piece of Eurovision-ballad. A bit like Samanta Tina in Latvia. There's no need for it, and I don't understand why people fall for nonentities like that :confused:

Oh non, "I need a hero" is a shouty boring ballad made by a Eurovision fan... Samanta deserves quite more than that...

So Gigi for the win + her name can support jokes from our commentators ! :D

I had the chance to meet them (we were making interview with them for escxtra) and we were discussing how silly would it be from MTV to put them in the first heat only a few days after the final of The Voice. (... and yes, they were indeed put in the first heat :lol:)


MTV started an official blog on A Dal (in Hungarian only unfortunately) I think its a great idea. ;) Here you can check it out: A DAL 2013 (http://adal2013.postr.hu/)
Also, they started inviting the participants to their Saturday night lottery show. (Where they usually have musical performances between the draw of numbers.) So far we had: Gigi Radics (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CyUVuSskWLo), Lilla Polyák (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-kb5xR9fPM) and Plastikhead feat. Laci Gáspár (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0uxbL1Hhgs). (Unfortunately these are full playback performances.)

Yes they were.
I dont know if you know the format of The Voice; after the auditions they were in the same Coach's team and were paired in the duels, where they sang "Where the Wild Roses Grow (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FEjwVpVW34)", which was very popular. After the duel the coach decided to let Dénes go forward and eliminated Szilvi.
Well, personally I really like their song, its anthemic and has beautiful lyrics, but I dont think it would be a good choice for ESC. :)

Other big fave in the polls is Gigi Radics.

evilperson
28th January 2013, 23:51
^ Yeah the format seems to be pretty consistent across all countries. The American version that airs in Canada has the same procedure.

Their song is alright - it just plods along and doesn't really seem to go anywhere. If they make it through the first heat they should make some improvements (if they can).

If Gigi Radics wins she should sing it in Hungarian at ESC. I'm not really a fan of the English version.

Funny, i think both of them are in the top 3 weakest in the 1st semi. The 2nd semi seems to be stronger.

Tastes differ huh so celebrate diversity! ;) I hope you're right and that stronger songs will follow in the next semi-finals. But I guess you're right and that it's all about that one song for Malmö. Besides, Hungary is one of my favorite countries in the contest. And I love many Hungarian entries: 2005, 2007, 2008, 2011 and 2012. I wish you and your country all the best with the search for the perfect entry. Good luck!

I also think that Gigi is the best and that she should stick to Hungarian because it's better than english. It's just like Gabi Toth last year. She ruined her song by translating it. If a song is written for a language, it can't always be translated because languages have different tones, rythm, etc. And on the other side, I listened to the Magyar version of last year Tibor Gyurcsik's song, and it sounds fake because I guessed it was meant to be a song in English and translated to be sold in Hungary...

Why sing in English when having such a nice language? Gosh this ANGLOvision thing is killing EUROvision...

I still don't understand or support selections like the Hungarian or Icelandic ones where acts are needed to sing in native language but then change it for ESC anyways...

The CD looks nice, would you say "A Dal" is a success in Hungary as far as popularity and audience of the show goes? I'm curious because Hungary belongs to the "unlucky Central-European bloc" in ESC and have been withdrawing back and forth, so I'm curious about the current status of the selection and ESC there... is there a revival of some sort?

I just really hope whatever entry you choose it'll stay in Hungarian...

One more thing, why do you write the surnames in front of the first name in Hungarian?

I think I wrote about it a few pages earlier. (Yes, here (http://www.escunited.com/t7523-9/#post908324); I think you didnt see it, though I wrote it to you :D) Philip Rákay (he's in the jury) is the programme director of MTV since 2011, and since then ESC is treated by MTV as every fan would wish. :)
They started a new official site (http://adal2013.hu/), an official blog (http://adal2013.postr.hu) and the NF is all over the media, on M1, DunaTv and on MR2 radio and newspapers; they even made a mobile app devoted to the NF and put billboards (https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/555403_474399699262986_1545002846_n.jpg) in some of the Hungarian cities.
The viewing rates for the first shows were very good; 20% of audience share and an avarage of 1 million viewers. (Still far from the commercial channels' best rates, but twice as good as MTV's avarage.) So yes we can say there's a revival here.


I dont know the exact reason why we write our surnames first. I know that this "eastern naming order" is also used in Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese. :D
It may be cause in Hungarian language the indicative word is always before the indicated word.
E.g. Paul the Great is in Hungarian Nagy Pál ("Great Paul"). Jean de Bordeaux in Hungarian would be "Bordeaux-i Jean"

Oh, sorry I must have missed that comment or forgot about it, but now when I saw it I do remember it slightly... but thanx anyways for your answer (and added info).

It's nice to see a revival in interest, I hope it'll stay that way but I guess with the long time of dis-interest and withdrawal for the contest it's still a bit uncertain. Slovakia is a good example which got good rates for their first two NF selections since their comeback, but due to flopping in ESC the revival faded quickly.

Interesting, I always wondered. I don't think that's the case in Finnish and Estonian, but somehow Hungarian kept it.

Odett was far and away the best song and performer for Malmo.Needed some work but would/could or been top 10 material.The 4 songs that qualified tonight would all come bottom of their semi and fail to qualify.
Kallay Saunders is terrible.Is so dated and outright poor.No chance that would qualify,it would be destoryed at Malmo.I just hope for the sake of Hungary Radics Gigi wins the final.The worst jury iv seen in any ESC show (apart from Estonias).

Yes the A Dal final is far worse than last year, where it was one of my favorite selections with the Kiralys, Annamari Dancs, gabi Toth, Peti Puskas, Juli Fabian, Monika Veres, Tibor Gyurcsik... i still listen to them... But this final is till widely decent with some good songs !

At least there is a top 10 song here... I would rank them like that.
1 - Gigi Radics. The best by miles... It would be such a disgrace if she fails...
2 - Andras kallay-Saunders. I prefered his last year song which even didn't go to the final while he offered a rose to the diva kati Wolf... ! Still My baby is a very good song.
3 - Tamas Vastag. A nice song, but Tamas singing is a little weak. I still on't understand why he won jury voting sunday...
4 - Szilvia Agardi & Denes Pal - It's a nice song but not that grand either...
5 - Gergo Racz. Not fan of this and don't know why the juries love him so much... But indeed he's still very handsome ! :D
6 - Ildiko Keresztes. It looks like Hungary loves husky and bluesy voice... :D Not found of it but it's OK
7 - Laura Cserpes. Not a bad song but her singing is not OK.
8 - ByeAlex. The song is OK but the performance is very weak...

Still I don't understand this voting. Why ain't it like in Eesti Laul with a combined jury and public voting at each stage ? It would be fairer I think... And as we know how everyone has been voted, it already rules out ByeAlex and Laura Cserpes... That's weird...

Anyway, may the better win, especially because the better is Gigi ! :lol:
And may A Dal live long, as it's a very good selection. But it should turn to last year format, with less steps and less entries. It's already very difficult for any country to have 20 very good songs ! :)

???? I don't hear any similarities between these two songs.

I can practically sing the whole of Mika's song over the top of Kallay's. The piano chord's and pace are near identical in a lot of it. Mika's song has lots of stuff going on in it so you have to listen carefully. Kallay's whole song to me though sounds like it's just been ripped from different parts of "Blame It On The Girls". I usually struggle to hear similarities as well. All this years Euphoria "rip offs" I can't hear.. but this song here. Goodness!!! Strong similarity to Mika's song I think. It sounds like a cover band doing a version of Mika's song especially for use in elevators:lol:

Kallay will win I'm sure :( But it's not doing much for me, I much prefer other songs so I guess I'll be on team Gigi tonight... although I doubt she'll make it.

There are some good songs, and I prefer Gigi Radics - Úgy fáj, I think she have good chance to do well. Not a winning song but I think better that the other in competition. András Kállay Saunders has the only song in english, so I don't think it will win, I think that the right direction is a song in hungarian for this year!! Yeah!

All songs are in Hungarian, it's one of the rules of the preselection process. Only the line "I love my baby" is in English

So most likely Gigi is going to Malmo now. It seems internationally be the most popular song so I expect a similar mood in Hungary.

Alrighty, I felt like I had to do my part. Voted 20 for Kallay Saunders though it doesn't look too good.

voted three times for "My Baby". It seems I wasted my money as the overwhelming majority supports Gigi but it's not over until the fat lady sings.
