Elena Hasna confirmed that her song is ready for eurovision 2018 and she's ready to represent the country, if she'll win.
She became a star on YouTube when she flawlessly sang Je suis malade in a talent show for kids and even Lara Fabian congratulated her.

She is a cute humble kid, very humble and Nicky, you're going to love her.

I hate it, when ::ro sends Normal Entries like Hotel FM or Voltaj.
In your Eyes "Yodel it" or "Its my Life" may be trash, but in my Eyes (and many others as well) they are Masterpieces :D :D
That is, what characterizes Romania and I would be disappointed, if they stop sending Stuff like this.


Actually I would like to have Cezar again here. Since he was a Juror this Year, maybe he didnt finish with ESC yet.

"Safari" is by far the Song with the Most Instant Appeal. Its a safe 10th-15th Place in the Final (being 7th with the Televoters and 19th with the Juries) as usual.
Good to see that the Song has 1.5 mio Views, so its very likely that the romanian Televoter will choose it.
Alex Florea sounds vocally better than in "Yodel it", but the song is a bit harmless. But I expect him to be Top10 in the Romanian Final, thats what he definitely deserves.
Jukebox is also nice. But in the end there are too much gapfiller. 60 Songs is yet a bit too much.

omg...i'm crazy.. i spend all day focusing on what romania has to offer.. but since there's no skiing or ski jumping on tv this weekend what else i'm supposed to do?:lol:
I like a looooooot of songs...but the main focus is on my top 6


::121st place: Zavera "Come Back to Me"
OH YEEEEEEAH! I have found my favorite! There are no words to describe this masterpiece. This funky-folky song makes me wanna dance. This is Abba with Doinita Gherman flavor. A killer combination that just worksxheya
I'm obsessed with it! ZAVERA TO LISBON! xfruit

::102nd place: Eduard Santha "Mesom romales"
Yep, Mrm knows me well..off by just one song. This is unique and fresh in the eurovision world. And a real pleasure to listen to.
I just love how he managed to mix African, Jamaican, Gipsy, Arab, and Romanian music all in one song xlisten2
There's a gipsy in all of ussssssssss

::83rd place: Serena "Safari"
This is how new songs from Inna sound like btw... I love them!
I assume this is a fan favorite.. This time I have no objections.. (unlike in the two baltic countries:p)
I love how it seems like the guy in the background is singing "Dala ti bom" which in my language means "I'll give it to you" (sexually) 8-)

::74th place: Alex Florea "Nobody Told Me It Would Hurt"
I didn't expect a ballad, but this is a ballad done right" Simply beautiful..i can see myself singing this in the future..The best part is when the chorus starts xheat

::65th place MIHAI "Heaven"
Very similar style as Alex..If i love one, i gotta love the other right?:lol:
Just less catchy..

::56th place: Manuel Chivari "Somebody to Love"
Call me a teenage girl all you want, but this is amazing!

other songs i want to mention:D

Alessandro Dănescu "Breaking Up"
Aurel Dincă "Fire in the Sky"
Bernice Chițiul "Too Busy for My Heart"
CornEL "Take Me Away"
Feli "Facil de amar"
Jessie Baneș "Lightning Strikes"
Liviu Anghel "Rise Up"

I just noticed the Similarity between "Nobody told me that it Hurts" and the Horrible ::ge 2013 Song, so I have to throw Alex out of my Top10.

Karolina and Elena Hasna are also very good, although the latter is more or less the same cliche ESC-Ballad as usual. But I like it.

I wouldn't say she has it in the bag tbh, as she shot herself in the foot with that song that is totally not the style she usually sings. I'd say Alex Florea has more chances than her. In that semi though, she will easily qualify.

Wish she'd stick to the Romanian version (even though the lyrics are cringy - they probably are in Spanish too), her Spanish is.... :"D

I'm rather disappointed in Romania. You had a chance to send Lady Gaga with a song from her latest beautiful album, Joanne, but you said no to this opportunity. "Dor De Lisabona" forever in my heart. So many emotions. Shades of "Gigi l'amoroso". It's like Gags is channeling the late great Dalida here. Bellissimo.

But at the same time, Romania allows it's eccentric participants to have their moment in the limelight, which I really love and admire. Belarus asks people to compose songs and then kicks them off the stage after 30 seconds, whereas in Romania an artist like Dorel Giurgiu gets to sing his bedroom pop hit for the full three minutes and then enjoys a rapturous applause. Go Romaniaxheart


I haven't listened to all the songs yet, but I like "Paint It Rainbow" even more live. I'm not ashamed to admit it made me get a little emotional. The last part of the song is poignant (2:25:cry:), and there's something sincere about the way Diana sings. I understand i'll probably be quite alone with my feelings for this one, but I really am charmed by this song and hope it can at least do well in the NF. I'm glad we get to see it performed again.

Eduard Santha's song is so WTF that I can't help but be charmed by it. The accents are dodgy (faux Londoner and Jamaican accents.... in one song, from one man!?) but it's fun. Eduard made the right move by hiring my gypsy dancing services. I think I enhance things.

Have no idea, TVR's ways are mysterious xrofl2

They have mentioned in the end one name who is smth in that theater I think, he had Serbian surname..maybe that is the connection..

Is Dora Gaitanovici frm the ast heat also of Serbian decent?

I really like her entry..it sounds great..hope she will be good live...

Just watched meriem again, how the hell could she get 0 Points???
And Raffael and Andy in the Final is a bad Joke. Endless and Jessie were worlds better.

I actually don't care about the fact that Safari didn't work live. The juries should be able to see potential in an entry for Eurovision, of course it won't work on a small stage in a small studio. About the "background" singer... I don't know what to say, I understand that there's not much you can do if you have a voice sampled in your song but was it not possible to get closer to the original vocalist? Or use the original vocalist? It sounded awful...

I really dunno why Rafael gets such a bad feedback..I'm really glad he's in the final....performance is very good IMO...vocal is interesting and different..it's oldfashioned song, but melancholic and very good composition imo...cheesy lyrics and electric guitar, good backings..I think, I LOVE it.. xlove xheart

Bella Santiagos "Safari"-Cover. Without exaggerating, she could have won the whole Eurovision with this Song.

No, you don't. Bella Santiago shared this video on every Facebook group dedicated to esc in our country, she is very proud you praised her song :)

Also Rafael was 2nd because he was the leader of Iris, a rock band well known in our country and is friend with most of the people from the jury, that's why that old-fashioned song got even 12 points from Marian Ionescu.

Also, there are rumours Feli will withdraw from eurovision because her father just died. In this way, Jukebox has it in the bag.

This Sunday keep your eyes on Xandra, I'm betting on her to win the semi.

Awww, really? How neat. Well, their song is awesome so all credit goes to them. The songwriter reached out to me as well so I'm super flattered. If this one wins (let's wait and see what's in the other Semis), I can see Romania high up in my Ranking, it's been a while :D

Well, I'm glad to hear that. I was a little uncertain about if a song is Romanian will be liked by nonRomanian speakers because they don't understand what they're saying. One thing is a ballad sang in the mother language, another is an uptempo song.
Anyway, I also liked your video, I felt exactly the same about the last semi-final. I'm looking forward to watch the next ones :)

I think I have to watch this tomorrow for "Paint It Rainbow". I'm so charmed by the song. A shame we're not heading to Salina Turda this week though, as Diana Brătan performing her song in the salt mines would have changed my life. I'm gaining a little confidence after seeing Gera's prediction because I assumed "Paint It Rainbow" to be one of those songs that only I in my weird little world like.
