You have been submitting your predictions for the latest round of Eurovision Prediction 2022. In one of the five finals due to take place this week, you were asked to predict the winner of Selecția Națională 2022. Now, let’s take a look at who you collectively expect to win the Romanian ticket to Turin!
After an online shortlisting round and a semi-final, ten acts remain in contention to represent Romania in Turin. Eda Marcus and Aurelian Temișan are hosting the show live from Bucharest, while Bogdan Stănescu and Ilinca Băcilă will host the Green room.
The winner of the Romanian selection will be determined by 5/6 jury and 1/6 public televote.
The artists competing are as follows:
- Alex Parker & Bastien – “Best of me”
- Andrei Petruş – “Take me”
- Claudia, Minodora, Diana – “România mea” (My Romania)
- Dora Gaitanovici – “Ana”
- Gabriel Basco – “One night”
- Kyrie Mendél – “Hurricane”
- MOISE – “Guilty”
- Petra – “Ireligios” (Irreligious)
- VANU – “Never give up”
- WRS – “Llámame” (Call me)
Let’s take a look at who YOU predict they will choose!
During this round of Eurovision Prediction 2022, 345 of you have predicted who you think will take victory in Romania. Without further ado, here are the entries that YOU have predicted to win in order of frequency, from most to least:
|Rank||Artist||Song||Number of predictions||Percentage|
|3||Cream, Minodora and Diana Bucșă||România mea||46||13.3|
|4||Gabriel Basco||One Night||23||6.7|
|5||Vanu||Never Give Up||7||2.0|
|6||Alex Parker & Bastien||All This Love||6||1.7|
|6||Andrei Petruș||Take Me||6||1.7|
Our players have an…unfortunate track record with Romanian selections. Infamously, almost 50% of players predicted that Laura Bretan would win with “Dear Father” back in 2019. Meanwhile, eventual winner Ester Peony received…one prediction.
Even when the artist was already chosen…our players still predicted the wrong song! In 2020, almost 70% predicted that “Cherry Red” would win Roxen’s selection, with eventual winner “Alcohol You” getting just over 26%.
Members of the ESCXTRA team may be disappointed with this result, as they selected VANU’s “Never Give Up” as their winner in our XTRA Decides feature.
After each national final, the points will be assigned and you will receive a rankings update via our Eurovision Prediction platform. Furthermore, we will make sure to notify you via our Eurovision Prediction Facebook page, our Eurovision Prediction Twitter page and here on the ESCXTRA website. The player that accumulates the most points after all the rounds have taken place will be crowned the winner of Eurovision Prediction 2022!
In 2021, our 363 prediction players predicted the correct national winners 7 out of 13 times. The year before, in 2020, 10 of out 27 times…an all-time low. To be fair, 2020 was a very unpredictable year in general. In 2019, our Eurovision Prediction players collectively predicted 16 out of 29 national final winners correctly. In 2018, your record was 19 out of 30.
So far, our players have guessed 10 out of 19 selections correctly. Let’s see how many of tonight’s five entries will have been predicted correctly.
With 6 national finals left for 2022 overall, there are still PLENTY of points up for grabs!
