Romania 2009 - Elena Gheorghe - The Balkan Girls
« on: January 02, 2009, 01:43:43 AM »

ROMANIA 2009


According to the Romanian broadcaster TVR 168 interpreters submitted songs in this year's National Selection for Eurovision Song Contest. TVR stated at the end of December that it is possible to get even more envelopes (aka songs) considering that December 22nd (postmark date) was the last day of dispatch.

All envelopes will be opened on January 6th, 2009 in the presence of a notary and those that meet all the regulations will be selected by a jury on January 8th, 2009. A professional jury (consisting of composers, performers, radio and TV producers) will select then the 24 songs that will enter the semis.

The Romanian Eurovision semifinals are scheduled for January 27th and 29th and the big final will take place on January 31st.

Rumours say that Nico (Romania 2008), Luminita Anghel (Romania 2005) and Noni Razvan Ene (JESC - Romania 2004) are amongst the contestants for ESC 2009.

Romania has sent from decent to very good songs, perhaps the only one I didn't like was luna in 2000, but still it wasn't terrible. Hope we get to find a good entry from Romania at Moscow.  :hi5:

I suport Elena Gheorghe now, but let's wait to see the show. Are many balades, but I think that our final will be again one from the best national finals.  :goodjob1:

Elena has it all ... great look, good voice, charisma but to be honest I'm worried about the way Romanians will vote this year.

I'm amazed by Costi Ionita ..... how come he decided to submit so many songs and also perform himself in NF ?

I think that will be between Elena, Catalin, Tina and Zero. But right, I saw many likes the balade from Costi Ionita. I don't know what to say yet. I still need to listen it.

I simply love Costi's masterpiece "Dulce-amaruie" (NF 2007) but again it was Nico performing it so that explains it all.

Tina - Pleaca! is the song who won the Romanian preselection with 92 points! Tina is borned in Moldova and came in Romania to participate in one tv contest to become a member of the group Asia. She didn't entered in Asia, but because there were too many good voices they created another group, Pops were Tina entered. She has Romaniancitizenship in 2005, the year when she tryied with Pops to go at Kiev. This is the composer Cornel Ilie seems to be her good luck.
