About the show
Those who are following Europe’s Favourite TV Show in details, but the Romanian national selections too, have certainly noticed that Paula and Ovi are among the finalists again. If they win, they would be the first Romanian artists participating at Eurovision Song Contest twice. There are also two composers well known to Eurovision fans, who took part in this year's Selecția Națională. Gabriel Baruta who used to be a member of the band Hotel FM is now an author of the song written for Anca Florescu. Bogdan Tascau also know as Mister M from Todomondo, composed a song for Mirela Vaida Boureanu.
About the voting
According to TVR there won’t be any changes in the voting system in comparing with the previous national selections in Romania. In other words, the final decision about the representative and a song will be based on the outcome of televoting (50%) and the jury votes (50%).
