Romania: All Songs Revealed!

Romania – TVR, the national broadcaster of Romania, has revealed the line-up and the songs in this year’s Selecția Națională 2019, the national final for Romania. Down to only 24 from last year’s 60, check out the entries!

After last year’s celebration of the country’s independance, that toured through the country and featured no less than 60 songs, which ended in the country’s first ever failure to qualify to the Eurovision final, we are down to a more traditional national final, with 24 songs that will be split into 2 semifinals to be held in Arad and Iași. However, Dan Bittman, the first ever artist to represent Romania in the contest (in 1994), withdrew his entry soon after and rumors say that Bella Santiago’s “Army Of Love” will replace it as a wildcard. It has not been confirmed by TVR.

Here are the songs selected to participate in this year’s national final, whose slogan is “Împlineşte visul!” (“Fulfill the dream!”):



  • Mihai – Baya (Speechless)
  • Letitia Moisescu & Sensibil Balkan – Daina
  • Laura Bretan – Dear Father
  • Trooper – Destin
  • Xonia – Discrete
  • Johnny Badulescu – Give Up Now
  • Echoes – High Heels On
  • 2 Gents – Ielele
  • Xandra – Independent
  • TWM – Make Me Your Man
  • Ester Peony – On A Sunday
  • Olivier Kaye – Right Now
  • Ommieh x Anakrisez – Rock This Way
  • Teodora Dinu – Skyscraper
  • Georgy – Tears
  • Berniceya – The Call
  • The Four – The Song Of My Heart
  • Steam – The Way It Goes
  • Vaida – Underground
  • Claudiu Mirea – We Are The Ones
  • Nicola – Weight Of The World
  • Dya & Lucian Colareza – Without You (Sin ti)
