The five qualifiers that qualified through the first round of voting (the ones that were selected by the jury and the public score combined) were as follows…
Karmapolis & Böbe Szécsi
Kállay Saunders Band
The qualifying songs were all from the second part of the show leaving the first half in trouble however the public, using SMS texting and the A Dal App were able to save Passed from going home.
These will join Freddie, Benji, Mushu, Egy Másik Zenekar, ByTheWay and Reni Tolvai who qualified last week. Next week the 3rd heat will complete the semi final line up.
Since the countries return in 2012 Hungary have never failed to qualify for the grand final. In 2015 Hungary were represented by Boggie with her song “War is Nothing” which came 20th.
