Lidia Isac

Lidia was chosen to represent Moldova in a public selection in February 2016 after beating off competition from 15 other finalists. Coming only third with the jury Lidia has the Moldovan public to thank for her overall win after topping the public vote. Moldova are also among the least favourites to win in May with odds currently at 250/1

Lyrics:
(Taken from Eurovision.tv)

VERSE:
Lost in time
you’re miles away
I try to speak, make a sound the dark surronds me when you’re gone
The dream we had disappeared

Still I believe, I’m holding on
I didn’t mean to let you down

PRE:
we could be the brightest falling
The brightest falling stars

CHORUS:
The sky is tumbling, it’s coming down coming down
the wildest fire
is burning out, out
And when our fall torn us to pieces
All of our love turned into dust
We’re the brightest falling stars

VERSE:
flashings lights
I close my eyes
I let the sunlight comfort me when all that’s left are memories

PRE:
we could be the brightest falling stars

CHORUS:
The sky is tumbling, it’s coming down coming down
the wildest fire
is burning out, out
And when our fall torn us to pieces
All of our love turned into dust
We’re the brightest falling stars the brightest falling stars

The thought of us all disappeared
Still I believe, I’m holding on

CHORUS:
The sky is tumbling, it’s coming down coming down
the wildest fire
is burning out, out
And when our fall torn us to pieces
All of our love turned into dust We’re the brightest falling stars

  1. I just made this cynical thought that with Romania DQed and all the anger that followed, Moldova may actually benefit, especially after Lidia’s proposal to Ovidiu, by getting the romanian vote as well – and that may be enough to bring them to the final. Far fetched probably but plausible imo. Let’s wait and see.

    On the song – it has potential but it remains unpolished. The known performance is amateurish and the official video borderline comical.

    Good luck !

  2. Lidia is not the best live singer around, far from it and her song is stale and dull, but there are fans that still support this genre in ESC and they always will.

  3. I honestly fail to see why anyone would vote for this song. Sorry and good luck!

  4. Sorry, but they better send Pasha and Aliona again !

  5. I can’t find anything positive in this, sorry. #43 on my list.

  6. Lidia seems like a sweet lady and she is a fan of Dua Lipa (one of my favorite musicians) so she earns a star in my book. However, I don’t like her song and it sounds very cheap (like their entry last year).
