Tonight the following four acts made it to the finals of A Dal 2015:
The first three choices were made by the jury, including four music experts as well as the TV public voting by app, which was counted like a fifth jury member. The fourth finalist was chosen by televoting out of the remaining acts.
This is the complete line-up of the final, to be broadcast live on Eurovision.tv next Saturday:
The line-up of tonight's second semi-final was as follows (jury scores in brackets, qualifiers in bold):
First the three jury choices - Kati Wolf, Ív, and PASSED - were invited on stage again:
Then televoting started on the remaining six acts, and the public chose the fourth finalist: Bálint Gájer!
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.
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!
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.
