Moldova is usually one of the countries that usually keeps silent about their Eurovision participation. A few days ago, TRM has finally opened submissions, in search for their Eurovision 2020 entry.
How will Moldova select their entry for Rotterdam?
Previously, we reported that Moldova is looking into selecting their Eurovision 2020 entry internally. However, during their call for entries, TRM has not specified whether or not their entry for Rotterdam will be selected through a National Final (O Melodie Pentru) or Internally.
If you are interested in submitting an entry for Moldova, you can submit your entries in the following way:
- Send the entry physically to :Eurovision 2020 Collection Center, Chisinau municipality, str. Hânceşti, 64, TV Moldova 1 (TV room).
- E-Mail your entries over to: [email protected]
Interested artists can send in their submissions until 17:00 on the 17th January. The Moldovan entry for Rotterdam will be selected in two stages. First, is listening through the submissions received and second, a live performance of the submitted entry.

Moldova at the Eurovision Song Contest
Moldova has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 15 times, debuting in 2005. The country’s best result is a third-place finish for SunStroke Project in 2017, with their song “Hey, Mamma!”. Moldova’s debut in the contest in 2005 was successful, with Zdob și Zdub finishing sixth. The country also reached the top ten with Natalia Barbu (2007) and DoReDoS (2018), finishing tenth both times.
In 2019, Moldova was represented by Anna Odobescu with the song ‘Stay’. Unfortunately she did not qualify for the Grand Final. Anna managed to place 12th with 85 Points.
