A semi final will take place on 4th March to determine which six will make it through to the final to be held two days later. Both shows will be broadcast live from Baia Mare.

Iuliana Marciuc, Head of the Romanian delegation and the producer of Selecţia Naţională said, “It was a tight competition, but despite the heated debate, the five members of the jury had reached a result and decided on the list of 12 semi finalists of national selection. I would like to thank the committee members for the efforts over the three days, as now we know the artists who will perform on the stage in Baia Mare”.
