Hungary: Song disqualified from A Dal 2019

Petruska disqualified from A Dal 2019 and will be replaced by Gergő Oláh in the final on Saturday

The Hungarian broadcaster has decided to disqualify Petruska from A Dal 2019. The decision comes after accusations of plagiarism, and the broadcaster has investigated the issue.

Petruska finished 2nd in the first semi-final of A Dal, with the song "Help Me Out Of Here", but the broadcaster found that the build up, melody and atmosphere of the song were identical to a song by Vampire Weekend: "White Sky".
