As the final is scheduled for the 8th of March (three weeks after the announcement about the finalists and their acts), there will be enough of time for the promotion, TVR told Eurovision.tv. Furthermore, the Romanian public broadcaster will assure that all the participants can count on equal terms and the same media exposure during that period.
During the Final scheduled for the 8th of March (20:00 CET), TV viewers will be able to vote only once (from a single phone number), which means that TV viewers in Romania will have to think very wisely, who they are going to support, before giving a vote! For the final decision, TVR is using the same pattern as the Eurovision Song Contest. That means, the TV audience and jury are sharing their votes during the LIVE broadcast. At some point, all the votes will be merged and the winning song will be announced.
Stay tuned for more information!
