Hungary participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 in Baku, Azerbaijan. The Hungarian entry was selected through A Dal (which means "The Song"), consisting of two semi-finals and a final, organised by the Hungarian broadcaster M1. Compact Disco represented Hungary with the song "Sound of Our Hearts", which qualified from the first semi-final and went on to place 24th in the final, scoring 19 points.[1][2]

A Dal[edit]

On 1 December 2011, MTV started the call for songs for their national selection. Entries could be submitted until 30 December 2011.[3] The participants of the semi-finals were chosen by a pre-jury out of all entries that have been submitted. Hungarian and foreign composers were allowed to send entries.[4] The names of the 20 acts and songs that were selected for the semi-finals were revealed on 10 January 2012.[5]

In two semi-finals, to be broadcast live on m1 and Duna TV World, four songs each will qualify for the national final: three will be chosen by a professional jury and another one by televoting.[6] In the final, televoting will select four super-finalists, and then the winner will be determined by the expert jury.
