Hungary: This would have been the Hungarian entry in Liverpool! | It won the A Dal 2023!

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.

The Central-European country withdrew from Eurovision in 2020 and has not returned ever since.Their last participation to date remains their 2019 entry “Az en apam” by Joci Papai which failed to qualify for the Grand Final.The country’s best resulting entry to date is their debut one,Kinek mondjam el vétkeimet?,sang by Friderika,which reached a respectable 4th place.Ever since their debut,Hungary has reached the top 10 five times,including two top 5 placements (1994,2014).

Hungary had a really impressive qualification streak from 2011 to 2018 and has only failed to qualify for the Grand Final 3 times.

The most successful Eurovision countries in the 20s!

Eurovision is heading to the third decade of the 21st century and it has clearly changed not only in comparison with the past, but also with the recent years. In this article we investigate how countries scored during the first 2 years of the 20s, as well as their average score.

As you can see below, we cannot identify a group of 5-6 performing performing always well, as it used to happen the last years. Only a few countries are consistently doing well, despite the fact that the scores studied are only of the last 2 years. Tougher competition, the success of the contest on social media (TikTok had a business partnership with the contest this year featuring exclusive clips of the first rehearsals on the platform), as well as the high interest by record labels are only some of the reasons why it is harder to perform consistently well, since entries are of higher lever than the past.

Lets see in detail the average score of the countries during this decade:

Country        2022   2021    Average

  1. Ukraine           1          5             3
  2. Italy                 6          1            3,5
  3. Greece             8         10            9
  4. Sweden           4         14             9
  5. Russia             –           9             9
  6. Switzerland    17        3             10
  7. Moldova          7        13            10
  8. Serbia              5         15            10
  9. Portugal          9         12           10.5
  10. Lithuania       14         8             11
  11. France            24         2             13
  12. Spain               3         24           13.5
  13. Iceland          23          4            13.5
  14. Finland          21          6            13.5
  15. United Kingdom 2     26           14
  16. Norway           10         18            14
  17. The Netherlands 11     23          17
  18. Azerbaijan     16          20            18
  19. Belgium          19         19             19
  20. Armenia         20          –              20
  21. Malta               35          7             21
  22. Estonia           13         31             22
  23. Poland            12         33            22.5
  24. Cyprus            29         16            22.5
  25. Romania        18          28            23
  26. Israel              30          17           23.5
  27. Albania          28          21           24.5
  28. Australia        15          34           24.5
  29. Bulgaria         38          11           24.5
  30. Germany        25          25            25
  31. Croatia           26          27           26.5
  32. St. Marino     33          22           27.5
  33. Czech Republic 22     36             29
  34. Denmark        31         29             30
  35. North Macedonia 27 35             31
  36. Austria           36         30             33
  37. Ireland           34         37            35.5
  38. Latvia             32         39            35.5
  39. Slovenia         40        32              36
  40. Montenegro   37         –                37
  41. Georgia           39       38             38.5

As you can see in the table above, there are very few countries where the average of their positions in these two years is below 10. This proves how difficult it has become to be in the top ten. It is even more difficult to have continuous results within top 10, since only three countries have achieved this, Ukraine, Italy and Greece!

It is evident that Italy and Ukraine are the two powerhouses of the competition for this decade (so far). Sweden remains high on the list, but far from the first place it was in the last decade. Greece is recovering dynamically since it is in third place, when in the previous decade it was out of the 20s. Cyprus gets lower scores year by year, unfortunately making us believe that 2018 was just a coincidence and is currently in 24th place!

Regardless of personal taste and opinions, the numbers speak themselves and is clear that Ukraine, Italy and Greece are doing great during this decade. The new strategy of the management of ERT to chose the artist and the song internally, is proven to be successful, after years of bad results and 2 NQ (2016,2018).

Stay tuned on Eurovisionfun because the journey to Eurovision 2023 has already begun!

Hungary: MTVA will not broadcast Eurovision 2022!

The Hungarian public broadcaster MTVA will not broadcast this year’s Contest. Hungary has not participated in Eurovision since 2019 and did not choose to broadcast 2021 contest either. When the country did not participate in 2010 due to financial difficulties, both semi-finals and the Grand Final were broadcast on Duna TV.

Hungary withdrew from the Contest before 2020 competition. In November 2019, EBU revealed a list of participating countries on which Hungary was not in. MTVA has not made a statement as to why it chose to withdraw from the competition.

Hungary’s last participation was in 2019 with Joci Pápai and the song “Az én apám” however it did not manage to qualify to the big Final, getting 12th place with  97 points.

Eurovision 2022: More than 40 countries will compete in Turin!

Through the official account of the Eurovision Contest on Twitter, a few minutes ago we had an important piece of information. The countries that will take part in Eurovision 2022, will be more than 40!

A few days ago again through Twitter, the Eurovision account asked fans how many countries they think will take part in Turin.

About 62% answered more than 40 countries and today we learned that this answer was the right one!

The above practically means that apart from Montenegro, which has already announced its return to Eurovision 2022, but also Armenia, which, although it has not yet opened its papers, its participation in Junior Eurovision in December makes us almost sure that the Caucasian country will return. We may have other countries that will either return or make their debut in the contest that will take place next May in Turin.

Andorra, Monaco, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovakia and Hungary do not seem willing to return. On the other hand, Turkey has so far kept a low profile. However, the EBU’s announcement this summer, for discussions with the country’s public broadcaster regarding the possibility of its return, leaves some hope.

Soon, however, we will find out the full list of countries that will compete in the 66th Eurovision Song Contest and all our questions will be answered!

Stay tuned to Eurovisionfun for all the developments related to our favorite contest!
