The first 10 contestants in the Hungarian pre-selection have been revealed in a press conference on Monday evening. There will be three semi-finals and 10 acts are competing in each show. The first one takes place on Saturday, January 24th.
MTV received 350 demos and the Top 30 were chosen by a ten-member jury panel. All contestants must hold a Hungarian citizenship or speak the language fluently. In addition to that, the contestants are also required to have a contract with a record label.
In the live shows, the songs will be judged by a five-member jury consisting of Pierrot, Jenő Csiszár, Magdi Rúzsa (2007) and Philip Rákay.
Short snippets of the songs can be already listened on the broadcaster’s Facebook page here.
