National selection 2020

This year Moldova has adopted a different format to determine its Eurovision act and entry. The candidates will perform in auditions before a jury that will rate them , with 12 points being the maximum points to award. Auditions will be aired live but the public will have no role in it. Once the audition is over it will be decided wheather there will be an addtional round or the act with the highest points will be the next Moldovian representative.

The Eurovision story so far

Moldova participated in Eurovision for the first time in 2005 and hasn’t missed a year since then. Its best results came in 2017 when Sunstroke Project with Hey Mama finished 3rd. In 2018 the country was represented by DoReDos anf their entry Lucky Day, which finished 10th in the final. In 2019 Anna Odobescu flew the flag in Tel Aviv performing her power ballad “Stay” but despite her amazing vocal performance didn’t make it to the grand final.
