Romania: Selecția Națională 2019 Open Thread

Romania has released the songs competition to represent the nation in Tel Aviv this May. It’s best I don’t comment on the standard but warn that you will not be able to claim back the 30+ minutes of your life spent listening to all 25 songs. 🙉🙉🙉

Anyway, they’re going to force us to sit through two semi-finals before the final on February 17th. Enjoy!

  1. Mihai – Baya (Speechless),
  2. Letitia Moisescu & Sensibil Balkan – Daina
  3. Laura Bretan – Dear Father
  4. Trooper – Destin
  5. Xonia – Discrete
  6. Johnny Badulescu – Give Up Now
  7. Echoes – High Heels On
  8. 2 Gents – Ielele
  9. Xandra – Independent
  10. TWM – Make Me Your Man
  11. Ester Peony – On A Sunday
  12. Olivier Kaye – Right Now
  13. Ommieh x Anakrisez – Rock This Way
  14. Teodora Dinu – Skyscraper
  15. Georgy – Tears
  16. Berniceya – The Call
  17. The Four – The Song Of My Heart
  18. Steam – The Way It Goes
  19. Vaida – Underground
  20. Claudiu Mirea – We Are The Ones
  21. Nicola – Weight Of The World
  22. Dya & Lucian Colareza – Without You (Sin ti)
  23. Aldo Blaga – Your Journey
  24. Bella Santiago – Army of love – wildcard
  25. Linda Teodosiu – Renegades – wildcard

The whole playlist can be found here.

At this early stage I would probably highlight Laura Bretan (fanwankish), 2 Gents (ethno extravaganza), Olivier Kaye (half decent production), The Four (catchy, but trashy).

An early entry for this year’s ‘most cliched lyrics’ award is from Aldo Blaga. His ‘Your Journey‘ is like buzzword bingo for some second-rate life-coaching class. 😂

  1. Why 23? Dan Bittman withdrew as he had a conflicting schedule. X-factor winner Bella Santiago should take his place.
