Moldova – TRM, the Moldovan national broadcaster, has announced that the Moldovan national selection will once again be O Melodie Pentru Europa. TRM has this year decided the act must be performed by Moldovans, but lyricists and composers can still be international.
A TRM jury will shortlist 50 acts who will take part in live and broadcasted auditions on 19th December 2015. 24 acts will go through to the semi-finals.
The dates will then be as follows:
- 23/02: Semi-final 1 (12 acts, 8 qualify)
- 25/02: Semi-final 2 (12 acts, 8 qualify)
- 27/02: Grand Final (16 finalists)
In the semi-finals, 7 acts will be decided by a 50/50 televote-jury vote and 1 act by 100% televise, resulting with 16 artists competing in the Grand Final on the 27th February 2016. The final will be decided via a 50/50 televote-jury vote.
The closing date to enter is 7th December 2015 at 17:00 local time. You can find the rules and details here.
