Two semi-finals with 15 participating acts each had been held on the 27th and 28th of February to select the 14 finalists who competed in tonight's final. All three shows were held in Studio 2 of the national broadcaster TRM's headquarters in the national capital of Chisinau. Iurie Gologan and Dianna Rotaru presented the final, while Lucian Dumitrescu interviewed the participating artists in the green room. During the interval act, the dancing group Teodor performed to hits of Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga, among others. As a special guest, InGrid performed during the show. In the end, the results of a combination of televoting and the verdict of an expert jury were announced - it is as follows (in order of appearance, winner in bold):
Thus, Sun Stroke Project & Olia Tira will follow the footsteps of Nelly Ciobanu, who had reached the 14th place with Hora Din Moldova in the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest. They received the maximum of twelve points both from the jury and the televote. Olia Tira had participated already in the 2009 Moldovan national final, reaching the 4th place with Unicul Meu, as well as Sun Stroke Project, who came 3rd in the same year with No Crime. Thus, it turned out to be successful for them to team up for this year! They will represent their home country in Oslo with Run Away.
