Don't worry Danniela, I respect your opinion.  :) I'm OK with people not liking the songs ... that's up to their personal music taste. I don't understand the ones hating the artists though.  :shrug:

well the most hate is for Sakis  :D
Maybe coming third and leaving other better (or favourite entries out at 2004) behind follows him... :)
U cant hate people u dont know but ofcourse i understand the possitive or negative a person gives u even from the tv..!!!

After listening so many bad songs one after another, I must say that I enjoyed this one quite much. In semifinal 1 this song will be just before Finland. Is it good for Romania or not - I have no opinion about it. Or will both Finland and Romania flop because the next one after Finland is the Portuguese song ?

For sure from these three, Portugal has the most few chances. To not forget that in semifinal the jury will not vote.

Elena performed that song in Dan Bittman's TV show Danutz SRL (broadcasted by TVR). Dan Bittman (Romania 1994) says at the end of the video
Quote
Fara cuvinte
(meaning "Speechless  " or "No comment")  :)

I'm curious about something  :scratch:  @Morgan ... do you still think now that Elena can't sing ?

The Elena's show from Eurovision are IELELE. The Iele are feminine mythical creatures In Romanian mythology. Clear characteristic are hard to be attributed. Most of the times they are described as virgin fairies, with great seduction power over men, with magic skills, attributes similar to the Ancient Greek Nymphs, Naiads, Dryads, etc. The Iele live in the sky, in the forests, in caves, on isolated mountain cliffs, in marshes, often bathing in the springs, or at crossroads. From this point of view, the Iele are similar with the Ancient Greek Hecate, a three headed goddess of Thracian origin, which guards the crossroads. They mostly appear at night, under the moonlight, as dancing Horas, in seclusive areas like glades, the tops of certain trees (maples, walnut trees), ponds, river sides, crossroads or abandoned fireplaces, dancing naked, with their breast almost covered by their disheveled hair, with bells to their ankles, and carrying candles. In almost all of these instances, the Iele appear acorporal. Rarely, they are dressed in chain mail coats. The effect of their specific dance, the Hora, has similar characteristics with the dances of the Bacchantes. The place where they had danced would after remain carbonized, with the grass incapable of growing on the trodden ground, and with the leaves of the surrounding trees scorched. Later, when grass would finally grow, it would have a red or dark-green color, the animals would not eat it, but instead mushrooms would thrive on it. The Iele don’t live a solitary life. They gather in groups in the air, they can fly with or without wings; they can travel with incredible speeds, either on their own, or with chariots made of fire.
The Iele appear sometimes with bodies, other times only as immaterial spirits. They are young and beautiful, voluptuous immortals, their frenzy causing delirium to the watchers, and with bad tempers, but not being necessarily evil. They come in a group of unknown numbers, either in a group of seven, and sometimes in groups of three. This version is mostly found in Oltenia, were these three Iele are considered the daughters of Alexander the Great, and are called Catrina, Zalina and Marina.
They are not generally considered evil genii: they resort to revenge only when they are provoked, offended, seen while they dance, when people step on the trodden ground left behind by their dance, sleep under a tree which the Iele consider as their property, drink from the springs or wells used by them. Terrible punishments are inflicted upon the ones who refuse their invitation to dance, or the ones who mimic their movements. The one who randomly hears their songs becomes instantly mute. A main characteristic is their beautiful voices which are used to enchant their listeners, just like the Sirens from ancient Greek mythology. Invisible to humans, there are however certain moments when they can be seen by mortals, like during night, when they dance. When this happens, they abduct the victim, punishing the “guilty” one with magical spells, after they previously caused him to fall into sleep with the sounds and the vertigo of the frenetic Hora, which they dance around their victim. The one abducted, and who had the unfortunate inspiration to learn the songs of the Iele, disappears forever without a trace.
The Iele are also believed to be agents of revenge, of God or of the Devil, having the right to avenge in the name of their employers. When they were called upon to act, they hounded their victims into the middle of their dance, until they died in a furor of madness or torment. In this hypostasis, the Iele are similar to the Ancient Greek Erinyes and the Roman Furies.

The background will be a dark forest and some butterflies.

Let's say that 2009 wasn't exactly a happy esc year for Romania (nothing new here after last year's scandal). For the first time in years Romania didn't have a scandal before the esc week ... we have one now :shrug:

Rumours (british ones) say that Elena's voice was "pure" playback in the Final but anyone with a little bit of knowledge about the ESC phenomenon knows that this is simply ridicullous !  Unfortunately this is getting way too far and I'm afraid that our celebs will stay away from the National Selection from now on but who knows ?
It doesn't pour when i it rains :P

If there's a rule Europe's most famous song contest sticked by through the years that's "LIVE performances only allowed !"  :)

(Rely dont kill me.. :-[).
Nearly all the songs i heard from the the semis e.t.c werent anything special as other years... :doh:
I didnt like her stage appearance... A MESS!
The song is ok BUT i believe the same for Montengro - Andorra e.t.c
If she does a better stage appearance from the entries which are in the same level as her entry she can pass the semifinal(its up to her and she is lucky that Montenegro seems a sexy girl which cant move...Andorra...leave it..Georgia left ).
I love Romania but i wont to be honest...(and maybe iam wrong).
6/10!

Well she did her BEST with this average song  :goodjob:
Very good choreography and she could sing decent eventhough doing it.
Didnt like the dress(that brown colour was... :doh:...saw her with a roz one which was better).
As i had said if she was better than the other pop songs at her semifinal she would had pass and she was(ok Montenegro had an more easy song but she had no charisma onstage).
The results show that the song was average and other pop songs which had ALOT worse vocals did better even with juries(so pop song has to be catchy...).

From what I heard Elena was supposed to wear that pink dress in the Final but I don't know what happened there and why they didn't change absolutely anything in the Final :-\  Remember that Nico did it last year and it wasn't exactly a good decision.

Well ... better luck next time   :P

ps: nice seeing you online danniela  :hug:

Performance was better in the final than the semi....but with all the shaking songs from Turkey, Azerbaijan, Spain & Greece going on it was going to be slightly forgotten
