The first five acts were chosen by the jury, consisting of Magdi Rúzsa, Philip Rákay, Jenő Csiszár, Pierrot, and the A Dal app voters as a "fifth juror". The sixth candidate was chosen by televoting out of the remaining songs.
The following acts participated in tonight's show (the numbers indicate the total amount of points by the jury):
Bori Magyar - Lead Me To Heaven

The juries had to break the tie between the three songs with 37 points to pick two for the semi-finals. Gabi Szücs and Karmapolis were the lucky ones. The televote chose Timi Antal from the five eliminated by the jury
The second quarter final of A Dal 2015 is due next Saturday, with another 10 acts trying their luck.
A Dal - The Jury
The A Dal 2015 jury consists of Magdi Rúzsa, Philip Rákay, Jenő Csiszár and Pierrot.
The fifth jury member are the TV viewers: just like each juror, they can rate each song on a scale from 1 to 10, using the official A Dal app on their mobile devices.
In addition to being part of the jury, the TV viewers in each pre-show also get a second opportunity to have a say: Out of all acts that have not been chosen by the jury, televoting will select one more to go to the next round.
A Dal - The Mathematics
In each quarter-final, the jury first chooses 5 acts to qualify for the semi-finals. After that, televoting selects 1 more act from the remaining 5 songs.
This means that each semi-final comprises 9 acts, out of which 3 will be selected by the jury. Again, televoting gets to select 1 more act out of the unqalified 6.
In the final there will be 8 acts. First, the jury will select 4 to go to the super-final. And from these 4, televoting selects the winner!
A Dal - The Presenters
The shows are hosted by Csilla Tatár and Levente Harsányi. Csilla Tatár had previously been the host of various TV shows, including a popular morning show.
Levente Harsányi already was a backstage presenter in A Dal 2014. He will be the first and last point of contact with the artists before their performances, and he will make sure viewers feel involved in the behind the scenes events. Levente will also host Dal+, the new aftershow broadcast.
