It has only been a couple of days since the curtain came down on yet another successful edition of the Eurovision Song Contest and whilst attention is shifting to the Eurovision Young Musicians which is taking place in Cologne, Germany on the 31st May 2014, preparations are also well underway for this year's edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest which will be staged in Malta.

MTVA and RUV, the respective public broadcasters in Hungary and Iceland have recently both made public their positive sentiment in taking part in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest for the very first time as key interest in the event increases. This comes on the back of their success at the senior edition of the Eurovision Song Contest where Hungary recorded their second best result with "Running" finishing in 5th place and Iceland managing yet another qualification with "No Prejudice".

At this stage; Belarus, Georgia, Netherlands, Russia, Sweden, Ukraine and host country Malta have confirmed their presence in the event, although Cyprus and Greece are also hoping to return meaning that this could be the most contested Junior Eurovision Song Contest since 2008 when 15 countries had taken part.

In 2013, ByeAlex represented Hungary with the track Kedvesem, finishing in tenth (10th) place with a total of eighty four (84) points, surprising the international audience. It was the only the nations’ third (3rd) top ten result in the competition and also created a renowned confidence for songwriters and vocalists alike who might have discredited the event in previous years. The selection process known as A Dal has garnered a lot of repute in the past couple of months and credit to the broadcaster, MTVA for attracted such a wonderful selection of songs.

In the past two (2) evenings, eighteen (18) entries were competing for the eight (8) slots allocated in the final, noting that four (4) were granted to each respective semi-final, with the jury having the first say and selecting two (2) songs, followed by the public who had the right to choose another two (2) songs. It is important to denote that it seems that both the public and the jury were in agreement over the selected finalists. MTVA will be hosting their national selection, A Dal, this coming Saturday with the official website of the Eurovision Song Contest broadcasting the event as from 20:20 CET.

Bogi - We All

Depresszió - Csak a zene

Király Viktor - Running Out Of Time

New Level Empire - The Last One

Kállay-Saunders András - Running

Fool Moon - It Can’t Be Over

Pál Dénes - Brave New World

Honey Beast - A legnagyobb hős

It is highly probable that the Hungarian selection this coming Saturday will prove to be one of the highlights of this season, considering that fans in general are not happy with the quality of the songs selected for the Eurovision Song Contest, noting that both the jury and the public have not been consistent, always pertaining to public perception. In the meantime, we would like to wish Hungary the very best of luck with their selection process and urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for more news as soon as it becomes available.

Hungary: Listen to the Thirty Entries

In 2011, Hungary returned to the Eurovision Song Contest following an absence of one year and it seemed that it was the right time for a comeback noting that MTVA, the broadcaster had a plan for a national selection process which would develop in a positive manner, ultimately leading to the selection of the track What About My Dreams? performed by Kati Wolf who had garnered popularity through her participation in the show, X Factor. Following a lower table result achieved then, it was time for a completely different genre and the song Sound of Our Hearts performed by Compact Disco also made it through to the finals, albeit finishing in another disappointing result. This time round, some amendments have been made to the selection but A Dal will indeed return for a third consecutive year.

The artists that will be competing in the national selection were unveiled by the broadcaster a couple of weeks back but nevertheless, there has been a lot of mystery surrounding the final versions of the tracks which have now officially been published through the official website. Thirty entries have been selected to perform in the live stages of the competition, noting that there will be three heats, each consisting of ten acts of which six (6) from each will be chosen to pass through to the semi-final stage. This decision will be decided by the public and the tele-voting but there will be eighteen (18) acts in the semi-final stage from which four (4) will be selected from each to pass to the final which would thus include eight (8) tracks in total. The decision in the semi-final will see four (4) acts chosen by the jury and four (4) acts chosen by the tele-voting.
