Hear all the songs of Selectia Nationala 2019!

As promised, Romanian broadcaster TVR have uploaded all the songs for the semi-finals of the national selection Selectia Nationala, for us to enjoy!

23 songs are here instead of the initially planned 24, due to the unexpected withdrawal of Dan Bittman.
Dan would be making a comeback exactly 25 years after he had won the national final in 1994 and had become Romania’s first ever Eurovision entrant with ‘Dincolo de nori’.
On New Year’s Day he posted a message for all of his fans and followers on his official Facebook page, where he announced his withdrawal from Selectia Nationala. In between other things, he mentioned that he will not be out of the country and thus he will be unable to compete. He also added that he thinks it would be best if Romania was represented by young talented artists.

The other 23 are still in and those are:

  1. Mihai – Baya (Speechless)
  2. Letitia Moisescu & Sensibil Balkan – Daina
  3. Laura Bretan – Dear Father
  4. Trooper – Destin
  5. Xonia – Discrete
  6. Johnny Badulescu – Give Up Now
  7. Echoes – High Heels On
  8. 2 Gents – Ielele
  9. Xandra – Independent
  10. TWM – Make Me Your Man
  11. Ester Peony – On A Sunday
  12. Olivier Kaye – Right Now
  13. Ommieh x Anakrisez – Rock This Way
  14. Teodora Dinu – Skyscraper
  15. Georgy – Tears
  16. Berniceya – The Call
  17. The Four – The Song Of My Heart

  20. Claudiu Mirea – We Are The Ones
  21. Nicola – Weight Of The World
  22. Dya & Lucian Colareza – Without You (Sin ti)
  23. Aldo Blaga – Your Journey

Former Eurovision entrants M I H A I (2006 with ‘Tornero’) and Nicola (2003 with ‘Don’t Break My Heart’) are among them, as well as Vaida who landslided the televote in the national final of 2014 but had to let Paula Seling & Ovi let go in front of her because the juries didn’t give her enough points to hold onto 1st place.

Give a listen to the artists that will be competing in the two semi-finals for a ticket to the Grand Final of Selectia Nationala 2019:
