The voting

In each show, two contestants will be selected by the jury and two more contestants will be voted in via televoting. Thus a total of eight contestants will proceed to next week's final.
In the final the jury will give their opinions as usual, but only reveal their scores after the last performance. The viewers will have the final say: they can vote for their favourite among the 4 highest rated productions. The contestant with the highest number of votes will represent Hungary this year.

The jury and the presenters

The on screen jury will feature Magdi Rúzsa, who represented Hungary in the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest, Jenő Csizsár and Philip Rákay. Kati Kovács, a popular singer and true star of the Hungarian music scene, will join them.
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 Krisztina Rátonyi and Levente Harsányi as backstage presenters.
