Hungary selects entry for Eurovision song contest

February 25, 2014

András Kállay-Saunders has been selected by Hungarian TV viewers to represent Hungary at the 2014 Eurovision song contest in the Danish capital, Copenhagen this May. His song ’Running’ received the most televotes in the national contest called ’A Dal’ (’The Song’).

András Kállay-Saunders was born on January 28th, 1985 in New York City to Hungarian model Katalin Kállay and American musician Fernando Saunders, and he also grew up in the USA. In 2011, he visited Hungary to spend time with his grandmother who was ill. At that time, he noticed an advertisement for the Megasztár talent show, and he applied.

It turned out to be a very successful move: András Kállay-Saunders came fourth in the end, and signed with Universal Music. At that point, he also decided to permanently move to Hungary. In 2013, he first took part in 'A Dal' with the song My Baby, which was the favourite of the expert jury in the final. This year, he finally managed to convince the TV viewers too, thus becoming the Hungarian representative for the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest.
