What now for Romania?
Earlier this year Romania was drawn into the second half of the second Semi-Final so Cezar will therefore participate on the the 16th of May when the second Semi-Final kicks off at the Malmö Arena in Malmö, Sweden.
Since 1994, when Romania first entered Europe's favourite TV show, it has had a lot of success, but has never won until now. Could tonight's result be the start of something spectacular? We'll soon find out!
