Auditions

Auditions started in spring 2011, with thousands of candidates.

Bootcamp

Bootcamp was in Thalia Theatre where 150 singers competed. In the first round the contestants sang a song of their choice. The judges immediately told the contestants if they were safe or not. In the second round only 50 contestants competed and they chose a song for themselves from a list. After this, based on the judges decision, 24 contestants went to the third round called "Judges' houses".

Judges' houses

At this stage of the competition, each judge mentored six acts. Each judge had help from a guest judge to choose their final acts. Keresztes was helped by László Kicska, Malek by Gabriella Tóth, Nagy by Kati Wolf and Geszti by Béla Patkó. Contestants performed one song for their respective judge. Each judge and their guest eliminated three acts, leaving twelve remaining. The judges' houses stage was broadcast in two episodes on 8 and 9 October 2011.

The twelve eliminated acts were:
