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.
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.
The line-up of the selection shows has not been officially disclosed but the artists' own communication, as reflected on wikipedia, leads to the following version - we shall find out until next Saturday if it's entirely correct:
Quarter final I (January 25th)
Quarter final II (February 1st)
Quarter final III (February 8th)
The jury and the presenters
In the on screen jury, we will again see Magdi Rúzsa, who represented Hungary in the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest, Jenő Csizsár and Philip Rákay, just as in A Dal 2013. This time they will be joined by Kati Kovács, a popular singer and true star of the Hungarian music scene.
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.
