There will be the first semi-final tonight and the second tomorrow night. Nine acts will compete in each semi-final. You can watch tonight at 20.15 (CET) here. Check out who is still in the competition. In each semi-final, the jury will first choose two finalists. The televoters will then select two more qualifiers out of the remaining seven acts. The jury includes Magdi Rúzsa (2007 Hungarian Eurovision representative), Philip Rákay (director of M1 and M2), Viktor Rakonczai (1997 Hungarian Eurovision representative as a member of the band V.I.P), Csaba Walkó (lead singer of Compact Disco, the 2012 Hungarian Eurovision representatives) and Jenő Csiszár (TV and radio host).
