ROMANIA 2012 | Mandinga - Zaleilah
« on: August 24, 2011, 02:14:11 AM »


ROMANIA 2012

Who do you think should represent Romania at ESC in 2012?  :peeper:


Quote from: Wikipedia
At the moment, it is unsure, if Romania is going to participate in the 2012 contest, because the national broadcaster TVR still has to confirm the participation of the country to be held in Azerbaijan, Baku. It is expected that Romania will continue participating due to their status as one of the few countries left never to miss the final. Ovi the 2010 Romanian participant, who got the 3rd place with Paula Seling and the song "Playing with Fire", has shown interest in representing Romania once again, with a song penned by him and Thomas G:son, to archive Romania's first victory in the contest, which then might give Romania the hosting rights in 2013.

There is no secret that some of Inna's fans would like to see her representing Romania at ESC.



Inna - Amazing



Inna - Deja Vu (feat. Bob Taylor)


Inna - Sun is up
 

I remember Andreea Balan having 2 songs qualified for the 2007 semi-final in Selectia Nationala ("Hungry for love" and "Prinde-ma, aprinde-ma"). The official reason for withdrawing back then was that Andreea had a concert in Germany on the National Final day, and she didn't want to cancel or postpone her tour. Gossipers said that she didn't want to risk performing live in front of the whole Europe.
In terms of celebrity Inna is more famous with her radio and club hits and all of course, but I doubt it that she would submit any songs to our NF, left alone performing live. On the other hand ... DJ Bobo dared the underable so why wouldn't she?  :P

I would love to see Catalin Josan giving it a go in 2012 ... he deserves a qualification at ESC more than anyone else:

Catalin Josan - Don't Wanna Miss You


Catalin Josan - Nothing more to say


CATALIN - Vrei nu vrei (esti doar a mea)

i agree, Catalin was robbed many times (i actually have him first of the roamnian NF three years in a row) but his best NF song was "Run away" in 2008 but his performance for "Stop" in 2010 was great!

It has been decided today by TVR's board of directors that Romania will only perform at Eurovision this year IF sponsors will cover half of the participation costs (including half of the costs of organizing the National Selection here).

Considering the social crisis here, the street fights and the cloudly near future in general, I can only say that there's no burst of enthusiasm when it comes to any kind of contests these days.

The Romanian broadcaster has finally published the "list of voices recommended by TVR to composers participating at the National Selection for Eurovision 2012".

Competitors may submit their songs between February 6th and February 23rd. The preselection will take place at the end of February.
On March 10th we will get to know the Romanian entry for Eurovision 2012.  I've almost lost hope to be honest.   :innocent:

ESC artists mentioned on TVR's list of recommended voices: Monica Anghel, Marcel Pavel, Luminita Anghel, Nico, Nicola, Elena Gheorghe, Mihai Traistariu, Ovi, Paula Seling, Hotel FM, Connect-R, Natalia Barbu. Holograf could be mentioned here as well (Dan Bittman's band)

jESC artists: Alina Eremia, Noni

Alexandra Stan, Inna, Catalin Josan, Morandi, Akcent, Blaxy Girls are on that list as well.

It will be very interesting to see who'll give it a go this year.

12. IOANA ANUŢA – Girls don’t cry

13. TASHA – Say my name

14. BIANCA PURCĂREA – Don’t say sorry

15. ANA MARDARE – This must be love

Feel free to access Bestmusic Radio Eurovision and listen to all competing entries.

Also you can listen  to them directly on TVR's website by accessing PIESELE CALIFICATE (Qualified entries) from the header menu

Just a few interesting facts:

  • Catalin Josan and Mandinga competed in the Romanian National Final before
  • Ioana Bianca Anuta represented Romania at jESC in 2009
  • Bianca Purcarea was one of Paula&Ovi's backing vocals in 2010. She has qualified for this year's NF with two songs but decided to compete with one of them only (Don't say sorry). Her second qualified song (Twilight) will be performed by T&L, band mentioned on the list of artists recommended by TVR for Eurovision. Bianca Purcarea competed at XFactor 2011 in Romania but didn't get too far.
  • T&L competed at XFactor 2011 as well. T&L's mentor at XFactor was Paula Seling. The band managed to qualify for the XFactor final

My personal favorite this year:

CĂTĂLIN JOSAN – Call my name



I have to admit that I thought that Michael Buble is the one performing this song when I've first listed to it.  :-[

The Romanian NF will be broadcasted live in less than 1 hour. The show can be watched online on TVR's website, like it happens for years, and, on www.eurovision.tv, for the first time ever.

There were better songs IMO but this is a very catchy and decently performed song.

Mandinga competed in 2005 in Selectia Nationala with the song Soarele Meu (My Sun). Their main soloist back then was Elena Gheorghe.

Mandinga- Soarele meu  :dancing:


Disregard the bad image of the video.

Needless to say that Luminita Anghel & Sistem were the right choice for us all.  :)

btw ... Luminita Anghel (Romania 2005), Dan Teodorescu (Taxi, Romania 2000), Eduard Carcota (composer of the song Tornero, Romania 2006) were in the Jury this year.

Hopefully Catalin Josan will give it a go next year as well. He has to represent Romania at esc one day.

He is supporting Mandinga now, unlike other journalists and musicians that are warning Mandinga that Eurovision is the second large show in the world, after Oscar, and even the smallest mistake of all can ruin everything. What they seem to forget is that Mandinga are celebrating 10 years of career this year, and the band is famous for their amazing live shows. Singing live is their main religion sort of speaking.

Catalin only needs to look at Paula Seling and realise that giving up is not an option as good things come to those that wait.  He definitely deserves a chance to represent Romania but his song this year wasn't strong enough - in fact it was probably his weakest effort

Happy song which when watching it really gives happy feeling, but when listening the studio it's quite annoying, no better than the Cypriot entry.

In the beginning I though Glen Vella is coming to stage. But what a disappointment :( :laugh:
Anyway, I think Romania have had better songs that this, even though it's not bad either =)
