Cezar performed on the biggest stages in the world, singing at the most important music festivals, but still the Eurovision Song Contest is a new challenge for him. “I’m really looking forward to perform, because it’s different in comparing to other festivals and venues I have been to. The whole of Europe is going to watch the show and I am glad that I’m being part of it”, Cezar Ouatu said a minute before having his first sound check.

Cristian Faur composed this year’s Romanian entry. His work is already known to the Eurovision audience as his song Let Me Try, performed by Luminiţa Anghel & Sistem finished on third place. “I wanted something different and this was a good opportunity to write first Eurovision electro pop opera”, Faur explained while watching Cezar’s first rehearsal.

But there are actually a lot of artists that I would like to sing with. Let’s say I would like to have duet with Sarah Brightman too”, was Cezar’s answer.
