Settling their bets
Each contestant had to promise to do something exceptional in case they make it to the final - now you can watch video proofs that everyone settled their bets!
- Fool Moon promised to sing their song only wearing socks.
- Bogi promised to try to sing a metal song.
- New Level Empire vowed to wash Kati Kovács's car and sing their song in danish, but Kat's car broke down so they didnt have to do it in the end.
- Kállay-Saunders promised to sing A Dal medley.
- Viktor Király promised to do the same, only with Eurovision songs.
- Dénes Pál promised to try snowboarding.
- HoneyBeast promised to sing their song on the underground.
- Depresszio promised to watch a romantic movie.
In the final tonight, the jury will give their opinions as usual but they will only reveal their scores after the last performance, picking four entries for the "super-final" voting. The TV audience will then have the final say: they can vote for their favourite among the four remaining entries.
The jury and the presenters
The expert jury comprises Magdi Rúzsa, who represented Hungary in the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest, Jenő Csizsár, Philip Rákay, and Kati Kovács.
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.
