Selecţia Naţională is Romania’s traditional selection for Eurovision, but usually they have different voting methods, in recent years the jury has been more vocal on choosing the winner, but in 2018 it was the public who selected the winner. In 2018 Romania failed to qualify for the Grand Final with the song “Goodbye” by The Humans, we’ll see if the public will choose wisely this time and if the online voting and the public voting will have the same favorite.
Last year Romania was represented by WRS with the song “Llámame” and finished 18th in the Grand Final with 65 points.
