  2. Anaconda I'm as sick as fuck.

    The number of entries is insane. Below tonight's songs (links to the live auditions). As Nick indicated, Tom Hartis withdrew because of health issues (he has the flu and hopes to be allowed to perform in another semifinal), so this semi will only have 11 songs.

    The official running order is not known (this is alphabetical by song title), but rumours say Alex Florea will go first, Eduard Santha will go last, with Echoes and Hellen right before him.

    Tonight's show starts at 7pm WIM and will feature Luminița Anghel with Moldova 2009 in the opening. Three acts will qualify for the final.

    1. Lina – A love worth falling for
    2. Johnny Bădulescu – Devoted
    3. Hellen – From underneath
    4. Eduard Santha – Me som romales
    5. Echoes – Mirror
    6. Alex Florea – Nobody told me it would hurt
    7. Waleska – Reborn
    8. Liviu Anghel – Rise up
    9. CornEL – Take me away
    10. Elena Turcu – The perfect fall
    11. Alexia & Matei – Walking on water

  5. Anaconda I'm as sick as fuck.

    Below tonight's songs, in the running order as indicated by Wikipedia. You will recognise M I H A I. I have NAC who the others are, but Serena is massively hyped.

    Tonight's show starts at 7pm WIM and will feature Ricardo Caria in the opening, singing Amar Pelos Dois. He is a Portuguese national, who has moved to Romania in 2005, learned the language, married a Romanian, and started a career as a singer.

    Three acts will qualify for the final.

    1. Pragu' De Sus - Te Voi Chema [I Will Call You]
    2. Miruna Diaconescu - Run For You
    3. M I H A I - Heaven
    4. Othello - Noi Suntem Pădure [We Are Forest]
    5. Alessandro Dănescu - Breaking Up
    6. Jessie Baneș - Lightning Strikes
    7. Romeo Zaharia - Maybe This Time
    8. Rafael & Andy - We Are One
    9. Serena - Safari
    10. Endless ft. Maria Grosu - Thinking About You
    11. Meriem - End The Battle
    12. Jukebox ft. Bella Santiago - Auzi Cum Bate [Hear It Beating]
  6. Anaconda I'm as sick as fuck.

  7. Anaconda I'm as sick as fuck.

    Below tonight's songs, in the running order as indicated by the Eurovision Romania Group on FB (Wikipedia doesn't list it). You might recognise Xandra, I think this is her third attempt. Again, I have NAC who the others are. I couldn't find a link for Ayona, I will update later.

    Tonight's show starts at 7pm WIM, and won't feature any guest performances worthy of interest for an international audience (imo). Three acts will qualify for the final.

    1. Erminio Sinni & Titziana Camelin – All the love away
    2. Zavera – Come back to me
    3. Mareş Pană – Daydreamer
    4. Aurel Dincă – Fire in the sky
    5. Tavi Clonda – King
    6. VYROS – La la la
    7. Diana Brătan – Paint it rainbow
    8. Carolina Gorun – Reach out for the stars
    9. Elena Hasna – Revival
    10. Eliza Chifu – So good without you
    11. Ayona – The story goes on
    12. XANDRA – Try
  8. Anaconda I'm as sick as fuck.

  9. Anaconda I'm as sick as fuck.

    Tonight's songs below. Feli is the biggest name in the entire National Final. Elena Gheorghe will be guesting. Starts at 7pm WIM, and three songs will qualify for the final. This semifinal took place in the famous touristic attraction of the Turda salt mine, as pictured below.

    1. Bernice - Too Busy For My Heart
    2. Cristian Simionescu – Nirvana
    3. Nicoleta Țicală - Una Oportunidad
    4. Zoltan - Dacă Dragostea E Oarbă

    oooh good 2 non english songs
  12. Anaconda I'm as sick as fuck.

    The fifth (and last, phew) semifinal of this neverending saga is taking place tonight - songs below (in alphabetical order of the artists).

    This is clearly the strongest semi of all five. The only name I know, also somewhat of a favourite for tonight, is Sergiu Bolotă (who attempted also last year in Romania with a song by Stig Rästa, but didn't make it to the final). I think The Humans have the best song of all 60.

    Starts at 7pm WIM, and won't feature any guest performances worthy of interest for an international audience (imo). Three acts will qualify for the final.

    1. Alexandru Ungureanu - Sail with Me
    2. Denisa Trofin - Tears
    3. Dora Găitanovici - Fără tine
    4. Evermorph - Live Your Life
    5. The Humans - Goodbye
    6. Iliana - I Won't Lie
    7. Manuel Chivari - Somebody to Love
    8. Maria Suciu - Sweet Nothing
    9. SAVE - All We Need
    10. Sergiu Bolotă - Every Little Thing
    11. Teodora Dinu - Fly
    12. Tomer Cohen - Baby You're the Only One
  13. Anaconda I'm as sick as fuck.

  14. Anaconda I'm as sick as fuck.

    These are the finalists for Romania, by order of the jury points they received in the semifinals from the expert jury. The winner will be decided on 25 February, probably also at 7pm WIM, by televote only.

    1. The Humans - Goodbye (58p)
    2. Jukebox ft. Bella Santiago - Auzi Cum Bate [Hear It Beating] (58p)
    3. Claudia Andas - The One (56p)
    4. Alexia & Matei – Walking On Water (53p)
    5. XANDRA – Try (52p)
    6. Erminio Sinni & Titziana Camelin – All The Love Away (52p)
    7. Teodora Dinu - Fly (50p)
    8. Tiri - Deșert de sentimente (43p)
    9. Feli - Bună De Iubit [Good For Loving] (43p)
    10. Dora Găitanovici - Fără Tine [Without You] (42p)
    11. Rafael & Andy - We Are One (40p)
    12. M I H A I - Heaven (39p)
    13. Echoes – Mirror (38p)
    14. VYROS – La la la (37p)
    15. Eduard Santha – Me Som Romales [I Am A Roma - in Romani language] (35p)

    My absolute favourite is Goodbye by The Humans, followed by Alexia & Matei's Walking On Water.

  18. Anaconda I'm as sick as fuck.

    This is the running order for tonight. I kept between brackets the points each act obtained from the jury in the semifinals (which were jury only). The final is decided 100% by televote, so there's really no telling.

    The national final is hosted by the Polyvalent Hall in Bucharest, and it starts at 7pm WIM. Guest acts include Ilinca (luckily, sans Alex), as well as DoReDos :S

    1. Rafael & Andy - We Are One (40p)
    2. Tiri - Deșert de sentimente [Desert Of Feelings] (43p)
    3. Claudia Andas - The One (56p)
    4. Echoes – Mirror (38p)
    5. Dora Găitanovici - Fără Tine [Without You] (42p)
    6. Eduard Santha – Me Som Romales [I Am A Roma - in Romani language] (35p)
    7. VYROS – La la la (37p)
    8. Feli - Bună De Iubit [Good For Loving] / Royalty (43p)
    9. Teodora Dinu - Fly (50p)
    10. M I H A I - Heaven (39p)
    11. XANDRA – Try (52p)
    12. Jukebox ft. Bella Santiago - Auzi Cum Bate [Hear It Beating] (58p)
    13. Alexia & Matei – Walking On Water (53p)
    14. Erminio Sinni & Titziana Camelin – All The Love Away (52p)
    15. The Humans - Goodbye (58p)
  19. Anaconda I'm as sick as fuck.

    After 60 songs, 5 semifinals over as many weeks in all sorts of weird locations, mind boggling interval acts, a 60 minute televote window, Feli fans committing collective sepuku, and most Eurofans despairing over Alexia & Matei consistently leading - I give you Romania's pick, and also my favourite (of our selection). I am relieved and rather proud.

    And this is the live version, if you want to base your ranking on it like I usually do.
