ROMANIA 2010 - Paula Seling & Ovi - Playing with fire
« on: December 31, 2009, 12:55:02 AM »
ROMANIA 2010

The Romanian national final takes place on 6th March. There will not be anymore semifinals. On 6th February TVR plans to announce the names of the 12 up to 15 finalists. A jury and televoting will determine the winner. The jury will count 50% and will be made from more little juries, each big region of Romania having a jury.
For the first time the selection will be made in a big venue and not in TVR studios... it seems the crisis didn't touch TVR or that their partener this year, Adevarul Holding have big hopes with the ESC this year.
There is a list with 54 recomandeted singers, but that don't mean that others can not send a song. The list was made only asking a part from composers or music  offices.
Until now talked about a possible participation Luminita Anghel, Mihai Traistariu, Anda Adam, Andreea Crepcia, Xonia and Blaxy Girls.

I'm not sure I want to witness any other NF experiments but we don't really have a choice, do we?

Lets just hope for the best ... although I can easily predict some scandals considering who's gonna take care of the whole game from now on.  :doh: .... maybe I'm wrong, I hope I'm wrong. I for sure can't see Biondo's fans getting too happy out of the blue with TVR's choice for the "Head of Romanian Delegation".  :shrug:

Interesting finding danniela  :goodjob:

This kind of song would easily get lost, not to say forgotten at esc. Annamari can do more with her voice. There are some typos in that video ... plus, some of the lyrics at the begining of the song should be corrected (I'll never understand why don't they check them up before actually using them)

Annamari's song is not bad, it is very bad. This can not be a song for ESC.

"The submission deadline in Romania expires tomorrow. It seems that Mihai Traistariu is still undecided about his participation at the national selection, although he might have found an appropriate song to sing in duet with Biondo.
Several days ago, Mihai Traistariu received an offer from Biondo to apply jointly for the Romanian selection. Biondo participated in the 2008 Romanian final ending up 2nd after Nico and Vlad Mirita.

"I have received this song from Biondo. It is exactly their style. I listen to it everyday and i don't know what to do. I will think about what to do. I really want to overtake Tornero. Do you know how our voices really get along? You don't even have a clue. It is perfect. I am not afraid about Romania, but about Oslo, I don't wanna have the same fate Elena had last year. She sung perfectly but ended up almost last" declared Mihai Traistariu.

We will shortly know if Mihai finally made up his mind and will be in the Romanian selection."

"Andreea Crepcia, finalist of the first edition of the Romanian Idol, has recently submitted two songs for the Romanian preselection for the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest together with her brand new project Sweet Lemon.
Andreea has already had some success on home ground with Boca del Inferno, a song of Sistem, the well-known Romanian band who accompanied Luminita Anghel on stage at the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest. This time, Andreea appears with a different project called Sweet Lemon and a new image with an attitude. The electro pop Sweet Lemon band comprises Andreea (vocal), Bogdan (guitar) and Felix (percussion).

The two electro-pop songs submitted for the Romanina selection, are composed by Andreea Crepcia herself and Bogdan Ionescu, one of the band members. The production of the songs was made in collaboration with Narcotic Sound, two young Romanian producers and Christian D, an ex member of Refflex band.

"About Oslo, I understood that it's cold this time of year so I must pack warm clothes for when I arrive there", said Andreea confident and eager to represent her country in the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest. "

Well sometimes we prefer not to see the reality..... :shrug:
Elena didnt have a strong song to make people prefer it more than other 24....!
She was pretty she could sing decent and dance and she did an ok choreography which made her pass the semifinal infront of other pop songs which were at the same level with hers(but didnt pass the semifinal....).At the final imo Spain was even better and had a good draw and had worse results...!!
Lets go at the reactions and the voting in sites were people werent amazed of her as they were with Luminita and Mihai.... :shrug:
If Mihai isnt sure 100% that his song is strong then he better leave it for another year...!!!


ps -
Wasnt amazed from Andeea at the videos i saw.....

Romanian finalist songs:

1. Come As One - the composer is Gabriel Baruţă, a no name in Romanian music stage until now. The interpret of the version he sent is David Brian, but David is not Romanian and TVR jury asked to chnage the interpret. Anyway, this song was made initially for Mihai Traistariu with Biondo, but Mihai wanna win alone and I found this very stupid. So, we don't have idea yet who will sing it (probably Mihai alone) even if the jury was very impresed by David' voice. Anyway, the rules are not very clear. There is wroted that only the composer should be Romanian and nothing about the singer. This song won 97 points.
2. It's Not Too Late - Paula Seling and Kamara. About Paula Seling we all know and love her. :) Kamara is the guy with the French part from Todomondo. His part in this song will be a little rap in French, buuuut the song semms to be very good since he won the same number of points with the first song: 97. paula declared that she really believe that has strong songs this year and it semms so. The composer is Andrei Tudor, the one who made "Pe o margine de lume".
3. Searching for Perfect Emotion - the composer here is Vlad Creţu, the "English" guy from Todomondo and the singer of this version was also David Brian, so we can't say who will sing it for the moment. It won 93 points from the jury.
4. Running Out of Time - Pasager - I never heard about this banf before. The composer is Daniel Bourosu. All what I know about him was that made part from Paula Seling team - 90 points
5. Playing With Fire - Paula Seling and Ovi. The composer of the song is Ovi, the one who participated in Norwegian selections in past years. He lives in Norway, but until at 18 yo lived in Romania. Many people considere that this song is the strongest contestant for Luminita Anghel song. It has 89 points from jury.
6. See You in Heaven, Michael - The composer and singer of this song is Mircea Romcescu, but jury asked for another singer. Aparentlly a stupid idea of a song, it seems that jury was very impresed by the song. They recomand that Mihai Traistariu to sing it. - 89 points
7. Come Along - Lora and Sony Flame - probably the most modern song until now, very atractive even for conservator jury. The composers are Bogdan Vlasceanu and Paul Turcu. Lora is a great voice - 88 points
8. Jackpot - Răzvan Krivach. Also the composer of the song is Răzvan. A very artistic interpret with a great voice. He sent two songs and he believed more in the other one. This is a rock balade with r'n'b and raggae influneces and take 88 points.
9. Round Around - Cătălin Josan is a song made by him, a song with Romanian influences, probably Rybak effect. Anyway, I do think this is a strong contestant - 85 points
10. Crazy - Alexandra Ungureanu, composer is Alexandru Deac. I do believe in Alexandra, I don't have any information yet. - 83 points
11. Love Is War - Tina Geru, the same Tina who won in 2009 the jury preselection with the song Pleaca!. This time the composer is Keo, a Romanian succesufull singer. - 82 points
12. I'm Running - Dalma, also Dalma is returning. The song is uptempo. I heard it and didn't impress me very much, but it is a good song. Composer is Cornel Ilie (the one that made song Pleaca). Also Moga will make some changes to the song, so maybe will sound better. - 81 points
13. Save their Lives - Luminiţa Anghel. The composer of Tornero, Time and Stop is returning this time with Luminita. I found the strongest contestant this year and I give it the more chances to win. The song sounds very Eurovisionary and UNICEF will support it. Luminita will have the help of Tony Tomas and Adrian Piper on stage. 80 points
14. Baby - The jury ask for another interpret since Maria Sanchez is not Romanian. The composer of the song is Mihai Alexandru, the one who made Don't Break My Heart in 2003. - 79 points
15. Lay Me Down - Zero, the composer is also Zero and won also 79 points
16. Surrender - Anda Adam. The composers are Matache Razvan & Zoltan Pop and Anda will be on stage with Connect-R (Moldova 2006). This song won also 79 points. TVR said that there will be only 15 songs, but they allowed 16 because the last three has all 79 points. But I think that ESC fans helped Anda because they talked more about her. The song seems to be a strong contestant with a show in Lady Gaga style.

The jury from the final will not be the same with the jury who choose these songs, so all this ranking can become irrelevant.  ;)

Thank you Adrian about the overlook to Romanian nf songs.  :) It seems that there are some problems with interpreters and rules. I am just wondering if there is still time enough to change interpreters in all those songs where your jury is demanding it.  :worry:

It is time till 6th March.  :D David  Bryan is an English who is living in Romania, in Oradea city from 3 years ago. Here is his residence, so these rules are really stupid. His song probably will be sang by Drogos Chircu, but I heard that Mihai registered Come as one yesterday and today he is working for See you in heaven, Michael. Ah, and the song no. 14 is sang initially by Renee Santana, the niece of Carlos Santana. Her participation is not possible because she is not Romanian.  :( Probably later I will post the songs here, after what they will be posted in a Romanian forum.  ;)

Thank you very much for all this information, Adrian! I agree, some rules are really stupid, especially because similar rules are not in every country. In my opinion, all ESC countries should have the same rules about singers, composers etc.

I am looking foreward to see and listen the songs when you post them here.  :)

"Come as one" will not be sang by Mihai and Biondo, but will remain to be sang by the English guy, David Bryan. He will be on stage with his Romanian band Hotel FM. He is living in Oradea, Romania and is vocalist of this band. He is living there from 3 years already, there is his residence and pay taxes in Romania.
"Searching for perfect emotions" will be sang by Dragos Chircu. This is a pop rock song and the best composed.
"See you in heaven, Michael" will be sang by Nicola (Romania 2003) and the song composed by her ex-husband and the composer of her 2003 song will be sang by Alexa (Romanian NF 2009). The version of his song sent to TVR is sang by Rene Santana, the niece of Carlos Santana. "Baby" is my second favorite song, pitty that not Nicolo will sing it because seems to be a song perfect for her style and voice.
And my favorite remain Luminita Anghel, Tony Tomas and Adrian Piper - Save their lifes.
These 5 songs are not public yet.
