A DAL 2017 HUNGARIAN SEMI FINAL 2
As you may have seen from my last post Hungary is doing its own Super weekend of Semi-finals. This article explores semi-final two, going out live on Saturday 11th February. If the first semi seemed a little safe, don’t fear, this one has all kinds of wonderful for you to enjoy. Here’s a rundown on what you can expect
Together- Adam Szabo
This is common, tired fare. The birdcages are a nice touch, but Adam’s live vocals need some serious work if he wants to win this and represent Hungary proudly in Kyiv.
Young Benji is a talented vocalist, but this song is quite dull.
Hosszu Idok- Gabi Toth
Now this grabbed me and said listen. Great vocals, a lot going on and quite entertaining. I’ll be very surprised if this isn’t in the top 4 of the whole national final.
17- Kallay Saunders Band
People who wear sunglasses indoors irk me. This just seems really pretentious. This is certainly no ‘Running’. It’s actually pretty pedestrian
Elet- Leander Kills
Nice, an 80’s rock ballad with some grunt. Not sure these guys will make the cut. They don’t seem too comfortable with the cameras.
Frozen King- Mrs. Columbo
This is a quirky little number. It’s performed well. Could be a dark horse
Kill Your Monster- Peet Project
A little bit of funk is always good. This is good funk! A personal favourite of mine
Nyitva a Haz- Roma Soul
Well. That was…. Colourful. A bit of light fun, but ultimately, not for me. Will likely make the final
#hatterzaj- Zavodi + Oliver Berkes
A laidback bit of blues. This is great. These guys are spot on. But I don’t see it going further
My top four would be
#hatterzaj, Kill your monster, Frozen King and Hosszu Idok
What are yours?
