A Dal has kick-started to become one of the most successful national selections in Europe, both in terms of viewing figures and of Eurovision Song Contest results - the winners of the show have, so far, each time sailed to the Grand Final.
Now that the start of the shows is getting closer, don't miss the opportunity to take a look at the contenders and to listen to their songs. MTVA have compiled the video clips of all entries in a Youtube playlist for you to watch.
Three quarter finals will take place, on January 25th, February 1st and February 8th. In each of them, six out of ten entries will qualify for the semi-final stage, with three being chosen by the jury and three by the televoters.
On February 15th and 16th, two semi-finals will be broadcast, and February 22nd will see the final of A Dal 2014.
All shows will be streamed live on the official A Dal 2014 website. For the final of A Dal, on February 22nd, we will offer a webcast for all viewers worldwide, right here on Eurovision.tv!

The Hungarian 2013 Eurovision representative, ByeAlex, will be a "digital commentator": he will be discussing online and commenting on the performances during the shows. Éva Novodomszky and Gábor Gundel Takács will host the shows, joined by two "new faces" as backstage presenters: Krisztina Rátonyi and Levente Harsányi.
