TRM publishes 28 O Melodie Pentru Europa hopefuls on YouTube

Just a few days after telling us which 28 acts have sent an entry to them, TRM have now published all entries on their YouTube channel. The O Melodie Pentru Europa hopefuls will still need to go through a selection process.

O Melodie Pentru Europa: The songs

Some of these songs, we had already heard. Sasha Bognibov is usually one of the first acts to announce his song for the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest and this year is no exception. His song “Love” first appeared on his YouTube channel on 29th October last year.

The act getting most attention at the moment is DoReDoS. The group have entered the competition with an entry penned by Philip Kirkorov and John Ballard. They have gathered by far the most international attention. A good sign for the longtime hopefuls?

Below, you can find the list of all acts taking part. The entries can all be found on TRM’s YouTube channel, which you can access by clicking here.
