This evening Romania held its national final to determine which song Roxen will perform next May on Ahoy Rotterdam’s stage at Eurovision 2020.  Roxen will represent Romania performing “Alcohol You” in Rotterdam. 

On February 11 Roxen was internally selected to represent Romania at the 65th Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam. This Sunday the Romanian hopeful performed 5 candidate entries in order for the public and the jury to select the one that will travel with Roxen to The Netherlands next May. The show’s  5 member jury consisted of the following members:

  • Luminiţa Anghel  (Romania 2005)
  • Crina Mardare  (Vocal teacher)
  • Alin Oprea (Musician)
  • Edward Sanda (singer)
  • Andrei Tudor (composer)

The show took place at Sala Sporturilor “Romeo Iamandi” in the city of Buzău. Hosts of the show were Elena Gheorghe (Romania 2009) and Connect-R. During the final we will see Loreen (Swedn 2012), Sandros (Cyprus 2020) and Ulrikke (Norway 2020) take the stage and perform as special guests of the show.

The five entries we saw tonight on stage this evening were:

  1. Beautiful Disaster
  2. Cherry Red
  3. Colors
  4. Alcohol You
  5. Storm

Once the public’s and jury’s vote were in the overall scoreboard developed as following:

88363686_2320700444898571_1661748079755264000_n

As we can see Alcohol you topped both categories of voting being awarded with the maximum set of points by the audience and the jury while the song Storm came 2nd in both votings.
