As you see above, tonight only has one show in store for you all. Sunday should usually mean a fun day, but we will just have to make due with whatever Selecția Națională throws our way. And on paper at least, it looks to be a good show!
🇷🇴 Romania – Selecția Națională 2019
Show: Selecția Națională 2019 – Semi-Final 2
When: 20:00 – 22:30 (CET)
Where to Watch: TVR+ or the official stream
After a wee’s worth of rest, we are heading straight back into dramaville thanks to the second semi-final of Selecția Națională. The show WAS supposed to have 13 performers, but since the withdrawing-train just can’t stop choo-chooing away, we are left with just 12 after Xandra dropped out just a few days earlier. The one to look out for in this semi is definitely 2016’s Romania’s Got Talent winner and America’s Got Talent finalist, Laura Bretan. Unless she too has withdraw by the time this post goes up. You never know with Romania.
Same system as the first semi. The jury rank and rate all the entries and their top five get an automatic free pass to the final. It’s then up to the televoters to pick ONE more entry from the remaining ones. See the list down below for the complete line-up in the correct running order (and for links to the studio versions of each song):
- 2 Gents – “Ielele”
- Georgy – “Tears”
- Olivier Kaye – “Right Now”
- Xonia – “Discrete”
- TMW – “Make Me Your Man”
- Johnny Bădulescu – “Give Up Now”
- Echoes – “High Heels On”
- Aldo Blaga – “Your Journey”
- Letiția Moisescu and Sensibil Balkan – “Daina”
- Laura Bretan – “Dear Father”
- Ester Peony – “On a Sunday”
- Linda Teodosiu – “Renegades”
Who is your favourite in semi-final two of Selecția Națională? Do you think the winner will come from this or the last semi? Do you miss the cold-as-ice cave from last year?
