Romania: Selecţia Naţională Returns in 2022

Romanian Eurovision selection ‘Selecţia Naţională’ returns for the 2022 season, after two years of internal selections.

Romanian broadcaster TVR internally selected Roxen in 2020 with a public selection to determine her Eurovision entry. Due to the cancellation of Eurovision, Roxen was internally selected once again in 2021, with her song also chosen internally.

The national selection will return in 2022, with the song submissions period to open on the 26th of November. The window will close on the 10th of December.

Iuliana Marciuc the Romanian Head of Delegation said,

‘I am glad that I will live, again, the emotions of the Eurovision competition and I hope that the return to the national selection system will be auspicious. Any competition attracts performance and offers a chance to every artist who wants to represent their country on the stage of the biggest music competition in the world

For me it is a great challenge, I have the experience of several national teams, I had the honor to be the head of the Romanian delegation and I strongly believe in our ability, of the TVR team, to obtain a new qualification in the Eurovision final”, added the star TVR.’

Romania has not qualified to the Eurovision final since 2017. Roxen finished 12th in the semi-final at Eurovision in 2021 with the song ‘Amnesia’. Watch the performance below:
