Lidia Isac, whose song “Falling Stars” won the second semi-final of O melodie pentru Europa 2016, is your favourite to win tonight’s Moldovan National Final as well. She remains at the top of your preferences, as the poll before the semi-finals also gave her as your best choice for Moldova.
Of the total number of 530 votes cast, Lidia Isac won the poll with . She also won the televoting in her semi-final on Thursday and she is likely to repeat the same feat tonight, which should give propel her to the top of the scoreboard, with a little bit of help from the jury. Speaking of the jury, they put her in sixth place on Thursday, which should definitely put those corruption rumours to rest. Neverthetheless, she needs to rank high on the jury scoreboard as well in order to win tonight, so victory is not 100% secured for Lidia.
In second place, Doinita Gherman accumulated 103 votes, that is 19.43% of the total. Her “Irresistible” song put her in second place on the jury scoreboard on Tuesday (Valeria Pasa was first), but Maxim Zavidia scored the most viewer votes, which put him in first place on the night. It remains to be seen whether Lidia or Maxim will come out on top tonight, televoting-wise. Anyway, Wiwi Jury’s favourite Doinita still has a fighting chance to win the whole thing!
Felicia Dunaf was your third favourite in our poll. With 47 votes (8.87%), she was trailing behind fronrunners Lidia and Doinita. It is very unlikely that tonight she will gather the support from both the jury and the viewers, seeing as on Thursday night she was the eighth finalist to be saved during the aftershow after a lackluster performance.
