In the final of the Hungarian national selection, on February 11th, televoting alone will determine four super-finalists, out of which the winner and thus the act for Baku will be chosen by a 50/50 mix of televoting and the verdict of an expert jury. All shows will be broadcast live on m1 and on Duna World, starting at 20:00 CET. Now you can already check out short excerpts of the 20 entries in the following clip:


The panel jury during the TV shows will consist of Jenő Csiszár, radio and tv presenter, Philip Rákay, programme director of m1, Viktor Rakonczai, composer and former Eurovision Song Contest participant, and Kati Wolf, who represented Hungary in the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest with What About My Dreams.
