Flash poll results: Sunstroke Project is still your winner in Moldova’s national selection

At the end of last night’s semi-final of Moldova‘s national selection O melodie pentru Europa 2017, eight acts advanced to tonight’s national final. In a flash poll, we asked you who you wanted to get the ticket to Kyiv. The results are in and they couldn’t be less ambivalent. By a large margin, your favourite act from Moldova is Sunstroke Project, with their song “Hey Mamma”.

Sunstroke Project, who represented Moldova in 2010 with Olia Tira and their song “Run Away”, now have a second chance to represent their country at Eurovision. Their funny track “Hey Mamma” is supported by a live performance which boasts three female backing vocalists posing as brides and, of course, the one and only Epic Sax Guy.

This is not the first time they topped out poll. In our previous Moldova poll, Sunstroke Project got 44.72% of the votes — so they’ve gone even higher in your estimations after the semi-final.

Second in your preferences remain Ethno Republic & Surorile Osoianu. Their song “Discover Moldova” got 20.18% of the votes, that is 138.
