Moldova will select its entry via the now usual national final of O Melodie Pentru Europa, scheduled to take place this Saturday, 2 March (links and exact times to follow). The 10 finalists are (live audition performance): 1. Aurel Chirtoacă – La Cinema [At The Movies] 2. Vera Ţurcanu – Cold 3. Marcela Scripcaru – Meteor 4. Siaj – Olimp [Olympus] 5. Maxim Zavidia – I Will Not Surrender 6. Diana Brescan – Lies 7. Tinna Gi – Virus [Virus] 8. Lemonique – GraviTy 9. Anna Odobescu – Stay 10. CHE-MD ft. Elizaveta Ivasiuk – Sub Pământ [Under Ground] Five of the ten (namely Aurel Chirtoacă, Vera Ţurcanu, Maxim Zavidia, Diana Brescan, and CHE-MD) are returnees, while the other five are newcomers. I didn’t find any of these atrocious, I just found it all rather basic, generic, not-outstanding (or any mediocre adjective of your choice). I think my top 3 would be: Tinna Gi (though she needs some stage presence) / Siaj (pleasantly surprised) / CHE-MD (though awful live). I usually like Aurel Chirtoacă, and this is no exception, but he is usually not right for Eurovision, and this is no exception.
