I loved Natalia Barbu's entry in 2007 and she should have won the NF in 2011 as well. I'm not usually the one promoting artist recycling but I think if someone deserves a second shot, it's her.

Plz no Catalin!

Dan Balan can't sing live (as far as I'm concerned)... his best songs are slow songs in Russian imo (If he could pull it off live, he could be a good choice):

Duet with Vera Brezhneva:

You'd think though she'd just come out one year with a song like Why won't you vote for me? but she seems to gain more and more energy and shouting abilities with every defeat. I'd give it 5 more years before she just destroys Chisinau through shouting at a high pitch and stomping her feet all over the place

I think there are acts I'd rather see than Natalia though. She's not even the best one Moldova sent so far imo (Hora din Moldova is by far my fav Moldovan entry to date). But with a good song, different from Fight and the stuff she entered some year ago, she could be ok maybe... all depends on the song... and I totally agree with you on the Romanian/English part.

I also like 2012, 2005 and 2007.
2011 and 2009 were kinda good, but both of them are quite strange and I can't say I like them.
2006 and 2008 were below average IMO. Especially 2006 when Arsenium has much stronger songs like Rumadai, his ESC entry was meh.

One of my suggestions would be Irina Tarasiuk, apparently her song 'Soare' was sent in to the Moldovan selection 2012 but never chosen, pity since it's better than all the entries in that selection (including the winner). Something like 'Soare' could be good, or an ethno-inspired ballad in Romanian.

The Moldovan national broadcaster kicked-off today the selection for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest. TRM published the rules of the competition on their official website. Unlike past years, the Moldovan television will conduct two parallel selections : one for songs and another one for singers. The deadline to apply for the national selection is set to 10 January 2013 for both songwriters and singers. The submitted songs must be performed only in Romanian or English. No other language is accepted. Foreign songwriters can also take part in the competition. Also, the Moldovan broadcaster underlines the fact that the songwriters should know that their song could be performed by any of the singers that qualified for the final. THE RULES (http://www.trm.md/ro/eurovision-2013/)

Hmm I don't get the rule??

Natalia was ok in 2007, but I don't agree with the popular opinion in here that she was the best Moldovan entry to date.

2009, 2010, 2008 were all better than 'Fight' imo. Especially 'Hora din Moldova'.

Why is there such a rule in Moldova anyway? To me it sounds like they already have an artist picked internally but are looking for the right song to "steal".

evilperson
2nd January 2013, 22:38
Andy at ESCKaz said that they changed the rules in light of Natalia's protest and artists can pick the same song more than once - repeats are allowed. I don't know if Natalia will enter now but the chance that she wont get her own song is gone, but other artists can choose to sing her song as well.

Anyway I think it would be funny if we get a final with 20 artists all presenting their version of the same song. :lol:

Okay, I don't get it. I read the rules about 3 or 4 times and I'm still not clear.

So, one of the rules say that the songwriters can submit songs, but were told (or were given the disclaimer) that their song may be sung by any artist. Maybe I think that's why Natalia Barbu withdrew her song. But I think I'm overthinking it.

Well that's what is said at least. There are two selections : 1 for an artist and one for a song. In a way, that's what Spain did in 2011 when choosing Lucia Perez. They selected artists and asked songwriters to submit songs for any artist of the selection...

After reading about this again that's how I got the rule aswell, but actually that's sort of how it works here in MF so I'm used to a system like that.

Here songwriters/composers can send their entries but then the MF team might pick a different artist for the song than the one that the songwriters had in mind or were singing on the demo.

Having the 2011 Spanish selection in mind, I think I got it. Germany 2012 came in my mind with their selection as well.

That kinda makes sense, but I wasn't sure about it the first, or anyway the 4th time. But now that the rule had changed since Natalia's protest, it will bring me back to similar selections of Spain 2011 and Azerbaijan 2010, where contestants in some cases sang the same songs in the final.

Doinita is hilarious, she's basically been in every edition of Moldovan ESC selection that I can recall... she's like a trashy version of Nelly Ciobanu singing 'Hora din Moldova' mixed with Zdob şi Zdub and some crack... gotta luv it! :lol:

On paper I think Irina Tarasiuk (http://www.escforums.com/t7535-4/#post882772) seems most promising, but it all comes down to the entry of course. I do recognize a couple of other names there from past years' selections aswell, but that's about it.

The final selection of the Song Contest season 2013 comes from Moldova. I’m very pleasantly surprised by the high quality of songs in this semi-final.

My favorites:

- Aliona Moon – A million
- Boris Covali – Runaways
- Cristina V & Glam Girls – Celebrate
- Felicia Dunaf – Codename Felice
- Margarita Ciorici – Coma
- Svetlana Bogdanova – Conquer my heart
- Vitalie Maciunschi – I want you back
- Vitalie Negruta – You’ll be mine

I hope that 6 songs out of these 8 will qualify to the final.

Good luck Moldova!

I hope Doinita Gherman wins, she is great fun, and she uses real Moldovan ETHNO elements in all her entries, this year included, other songs are quite boring or just bad, there are many songs by Swedish composers.. :(

I quite like Inaya - "I need you now", but her accent is too bad, so I prefer version with composers singing it, you can listen to it too:

This is another strong semi-final in Moldova. And I personally think that the eventual winner will come from this heat, namely “Never fall again” by Cristina Croitoru & Karizma. What a fantastic song!

My favorites:

- Alexandru Sendrea – In my head
- Aurel Chirtoacă – Iartă-mă
- Cristina Croitoru & Karizma – Never fall again
- Inaya – I need you now
- Irina Kitoroagă – L.o.v.e love
- Irina Tarasiuk – Dancing hearts
- NiCo – Freaky thong
- Tatiana Heghea – A brigther day

I hope that 7 songs out of these 8 will qualify to the final.

Good luck Moldova!

Tatiana Heghea is quite catchy but nothing special, don't see it making a top 10 finish.

Second this! And if the Moldovan juries are smart (and re-think their fixed win for Aliona) they realize what competition there is in ESC and that Doinita will stand out from the crowd while Aliona will be just one blending with the rest and perhaps won't even qualify.

If Doinita wins the national final, she will flop FOR SURE in the contest. People in other countries don't want to pick up the phones for a little snapshot of Moldovan culture, they'll pick up the phone to vote for a song they like or can relate to in some way. Moldova would have a much better chance with Aliona.

Anyway this year the running order will be decided by the organisers, so they will strategically order songs based on their melody. They won't put 10 ballads back-to-back like we've had in previous years. Besides, Aliona's song, voice, and production is hardly forgettable! A good ballad always does well in Eurovision. When was the last time a song like Doinita's won Eurovision? Never...

And the very last national final of the Eurovision season 2013 is a fact. This is without doubt one of the strongest finals of this season, and one without bad songs.

My big favorites:

- Aliona Moon – A million
- Aurel Chirtoacă – Iartă-mă
- Boris Covali – Runaways
- Cristina Croitoru & Karizma – Never fall again
- Cristina V & Glam Girls – Celebrate
- Svetlana Bogdanova – Conquer my heart
- Vitalie Negruţa – You’ll be mine

Other songs I like:

- Cristina Scarlat – I pray
- Irina Kitoroagă – L.o.v.e. love
- Nicoleta Gavriliţă – Freaky thong
- Tatiana Heghea – A brighter day

I could live with:

- Anna Gulko – Somebody else
- Doiniţa Gherman – Planeta e un rai
- Felicia Dunaf – Codename Felice

Good luck Moldova!

No wonder, 40% of Moldvan NF songs this year are written by Swedish songwriters, and especially Michael James Down..

It's so strange seeing all the votes prior to the deadline. Alina Moon in 2nd place so if the juries love that one it will win.

Run Away was a nice little dance track... better than Lautar.

But "Hora din Moldova" remains their best entry to date!

It's probably already fixed anyways.

Anyways I missed everything... they first reveal the televote and then juries? That's even worse than the solution in Sweden imo.

Nah, I agree with the actual results. Lautar the best :D


But at this point I don't see anything good coming from Moldova. Let's hope the last 4 songs are better.

I see... well that doesn't really say if the song is better than the others though...

I even think Geta's song was better than that one... so I would probably but Lautar 4th on my list of Moldovan entries to date.

Why are people hating Aliona's song? I think it's one of the better ones. She looks and sounds great and melodically one of the stronger entries.

My personal ranking is probably

1. Doiniţa Gherman
2. Aliona Moon
3. Boris Covali
