BUDAPEST – Pápai Joci has been chosen to represent Hungary at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 with his song Origo. He won A Dal 2017, the national final, receiving most of the jury points and then winning overall when the points were combined with the televotes.

This was my favorite to win A Dal so I’m really happy with him winning. I think it will be great at Eurovision because it’s such a different song. It’s really cultural and original. I don’t really know if he will get a lot of jury votes because it’s not a typical song that the jury votes for. I do think he will receive a lot of televotes because I can see why people would like this. It’s an unusual song and I hope the act makes it unforgettable. But it will absolutely be in my top 5. 9/10
