Romania chose their Eurovision representative last Sunday. The Humans received the most votes and will represent the country in Lisbon with “Goodbye”. After the final two finalists and fan favourites — Feli and M I H A I — talked about the result and their future plans.
Feli says she won’t return
Feli, one of the big favourites of this year’s Selecția Națională, took time to comment the results and answer for her fans over on her Facebook page. She told that the winner of the evening was music and that she wasn’t upset about the result.
When asked, if she would return to Eurovision one day, Feli answered negatively.
Feli placed third in the final with the song “Royalty”. She received 2862 televotes, as the winner The Humans got 3277 votes in total.
M I H A I has two options
Mihai Trăistariu also commented the result on his Facebook page. Mihai, who represented Romania in 2006, is still eager to make his Eurovision comeback. Since 2006, he has taken part in the Romanian national selection three times.
This year he finished seventh with “Heaven”. On his Facebook post, he said he has two options for 2019. He says he either returns to Selecția Națională with a help of a record label or try to represent another country with “a WOW song”.
He names two countries, Moldova and Malta. The problem according to him is that these countries allow foreign artists taking part in their selections only if they will sing in a duet with a local artist.
Moldova would tempt me because the Romanian language is spoken and I often concert there and I have a terrific success. Malta would tempt me because “Tornero” spent six months on the first place at their radios in 2006. In addition, I also received a star on the Malta Celebrity Boulevard and I have been doing open air concerts there 9 times.
