I think most Eurovision fans agree that Hungary's current run of success - 6 qualifications out of 6 since their 2011 comeback - is one of the most impressive of any country, particularly as they don't have any particular help from a diaspora and don't import Swedish songs. Much of this is no doubt thanks to A Dal, now one of the most popular selections outside of Scandinavia, and for 2017 they are looking to make A Dal the strongest it has ever been - acts must be experienced and have a label or manager:

Kállay Saunders Band has reportedly suggested he may be returning yet again, he is adamant that he will be the one to bring a victory to Hungary one day. Who We Are was fantastic this year, and probably would've outperformed Freddie in Stockholm in hindsight, but it all fell apart in that dramatic national final with failing earpieces and repeat performances.

The Kallay Saunders Band song is already out and it's nowhere near as good as it sounds like it thinks it is

Oh I love it! It's chilled yet anthemic and once again very on trend. It doesn't scream winner like Who We Are did (and it came very close), but this does seem like it requires a little less vocal range and András did slightly struggle live with Who We Are. Kállay Saunders Band are one of Hungary's top artists from what I gather and they will be guaranteed radio airplay where many other won't, hopefully it is staged well and it can become a contender.

Looking forward to hearing Gigi's latest offering and also Adám as I liked both of their previous entries!

Nice sound but I doubt they will win even national contest.

Woah I am loving it wub.gif I really think something like Love In The Dark or #JOY would have been more suitable, but I'm pretty sure this'll get through to Eurovision (and rightfully so! KSB are criminally underrated)

This song is getting a fair bit of hype as a fan favourite for people who like mid noughties ethno-pop. Not got a hope in hell of winning the selection but it's still enjoyable!

The A Dal songs are all available here in studio form

A Dal is by far and away one of the weakest of the big NFs for me and this year is no better. Ádám Szabó's entry is trying to get into the same vibe as Freddy from last year but it isn't as good and the lyrics are pretty clunky. The best one is probably Gigi's big power ballad but even that's only about an 8/10.

Out of all the ones I've listened to (the biggest names and the fan hypes), Kállay Saunders Band remains by far my favourite but I accept '17' is very much a radio song as opposed to something that will win a competition whether it is A Dal or Eurovision. Ádám is probably the most winnery-sounding but that is because it is very much from the same cloth as 'Pioneer' was.

Gigi is pleasant enough, it could come alive live but at this stage I doubt it can win if 'Over You' couldn't. Totova & Freddie doesn't appeal to me much at all, screams fans getting excited just because there is *an* ethno-pop song rather than it being a *good* ethno-pop song.

Yeah I imagine Ádám is the front runner at this stage!

Listened to a fair few of them and Kallay Saunders Band is my favourite, as usual. Still wish they'd entered Love In The Dark for A Dal, though, that sounds as big as Running was.
