  19. Univox - Moody Numbers (5 points - 10th)
  20. Akord - Live The Show (6 points - 8th)
  21. INAYA - Lights (0 points)
Initially, 20 candidates were chosen by a jury out of all entries received during the open submission period. Nelly Ciobanu later withdrew, so that the runner-up, Akord, took her place with their song Live The Show. Mariana Mihăilă was the winner of a web-voting involving all non-qualifying entries, thus joining the line-up as the 21st entrant.
In the end, Pasha Parfeny was the joint winner of the voting, which consisted of a 50/50 combination of televoting and the verdict of an expert jury. He will sing Lăutar in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest.
