Last Saturday took place the final of the A Dal show, the music competition through which Hungary used to pick up their entry for the Eurovision Song Contest, until they withdrew from the contest in 2020.
The winners of the A Dal 2023 were the band TITAN, descended from the Transylvania region, with the song Éjféli járat.
The reasons behind the absence of Hungary from Eurovision are the high cost of participation, the anti-LGBT sentiment of the Hungarian government and the mentality of the public towards these aspects.
Apart from the aforementioned reasons, another one is the big success of the A Dal show, which still goes on despite the absence of the country. Actually the A Dal rating were even higher than those of the Eurovision Song Contest.
