Moldova: TRM announces the 28 songs taking part in auditions

Last year's runner-up is back

Recently it was revealed that only 28 artists were interested to take part in Moldova’s national selection for Eurovision Song Contest 2019. Now the names of the songs were announced by Moldova’s broadcaster TRM.

Returning from last year’s national selection are Che MD, who finished last. Anna Odobescu, who finished fifth and Viorela, who finished second-to-last. Also returning is Vera Țurcanu, who finished second behind the winner DoReDoS.

Two artists were not eligible to take part in the auditions. One participant submitted an incomplete file and the other was excluded from the competition because the song’s lyrics contained elements that incite hatred and intolerance.

The auditions will take place on February 2nd and the live auditions will be broadcasted live on TRM’s website. This stage does not require stage dress or show elements, but the jury are ranking the songs based on the melody, the originality of the song, the vocal performance and the actual interpretation of the song.

After that, the selected songs will compete on a semifinal on March 2nd. A day later, on March 3rd, the Grand Final will take place and Moldova will choose it’s entry to the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv.

I started watching Eurovision back in 2006, when I was only 10 and couldn't stay up to see Lordi winning. I attended my first contest in 2013 in Malmö. I'm studying journalism and I love music — you will probably never see me without my headphones on.
