In the first round of voting the jury consisting of Feró Nagy, Lilla Vincze, Misi Mező and Miklós Both awarded points to each song (10 being the highest).

In the second round of voting the 6 remaining acts faced another round of public voting that determined the fourth and last act to qualify for the final.

Joci Pápai – Az én apám (45 points)
