Romania Continues Their Eurovision Search: Three more Qualify!

For the last few weeks, we’ve been touring around Romania in order to find who will be the next star to represent Romania at Eurovision this year. Each week, 12 participants have performed for only three spots in the final, and with five semi-finals, there will be a total of 15 acts in the Romanian national final, which will take place on the 25th of February.

As we know, each week the semi-finals have been taking place in different cities across Romania, and this week the show took place in Turda. Here’s the line-up:

  • Bernice Chiţiul – Too busy for my heart

  • Cristian Siminonescu – Nirvana

  • Nicoleta Ţicală – Una oportunidad

  • ZOLTAN – Dacă dragostea e oarbă

  • Alice Jeckel – Out of the dark

  • Dan Manciulea – Rază de soare

  • Lion’s Roar – Rekindle the flame

  • Ioana Ciornea – Time after time

  • TIRI – Deşert de sentimente

  • Feli – Bună de iubit

  • Paula Crişan – I am here

  • Claudia Andas – The one

Let’s get into this week’s voting!

Top 3 votes from Liliana Ştefan: Claudia Andas, TIRI, Feli

Top 3 votes from Viorel Gavrilă: Claudia Andas, Nicoleta Ţicală, Feli

Top 3 votes from Ilinca Băcilă: TIRI, Feli, Claudia Andas

Top 3 votes from Nicu Patoi: Claudia Andas, Feli, TIRI

As we can see, for the most part the jury agreed on who should qualify to the final. With the points combined, the winner of the semi-final was Claudia Andas with the song The One. Finishing on a tie in 2nd was TIRI and Feli both on 43 points. Unfortunately not far behind was Nicoleta Ţicală on 40 points, but as we know only three qualify! Here are the qualifiers:

  • Claudia Andas – The One

  • TIRI – Deşert de sentimente

  • Feli – Bună de iubit
