The finalists were chosen by a mixed vote between a jury and televoters. Tonight the following 12 acts participated and 6 of them, in bold, will compete again in the final:
Besa - Nothing Gonna Change
Red Blonde - Nu Am Cu Cine
Adrian Molnar - Go On
Catalin - Stop
Soundcheck - You Are My Love
Etnic - The Love Is The Life
Irina Popa - I Feel Your Presence
Alexa - One Last Night
Alin Nica - Don't Leave
IMBA - Round & Round
Costi Ionita - Can You Forgive
Elena Gheorghe - The Balkan Girls
In early January, a special jury appointed by Romanian broadcaster TVR had selected the 24 songs that would participate in the Romanian selection.
Now all the 12 acts, together with the first six-pack chosen on Tuesday, will take the stage again on Saturday when the Romanian representative will be chosen for the 54th Eurovision Song Contest.
