Poll Romania Selectia Nationala 2018 finalists

Romania‘s national selection for Eurovision is drawing to a close. After an ambitious five-semifinal run under the slogan “Eurovision Unites Romania”, the Selectia Nationala 2018 winner will finally be crowned in Bucharest’s Sala Polivalenta on Sunday, 25 February. The viewing public will be the only one to choose the Romanian representative by televote, but before that happens, you now get the chance to voice your opinion and vote for your winner in our poll. So who will you choose?

After Ilinca feat. Alex Florea managed to “Yodel It!” so seventh place in Kyiv last year, the pressure is on for the next Romanian act to do even better. After no less than five semi-finals in five different cities, 59 songs, and 15 finalists selected solely by the Selectia Nationala jury, it is finally time for the viewers at home to choose their winner. The National Final will start at 21:00 CET on Sunday, it will be aired live from Sala Polivalenta in Bucharest and, by midnight, we will have our Romania representative from one of the acts below.

Until then, we’re inviting you to cast your vote in our poll and tell Romania who they should choose on 25 February.

Who are the 15 Selectia Nationala 2018 finalists?

Listen to the 15 songs and watch the semi-final performances below, then head to the poll and cast your deciding vote.

Now it’s time to vote for your favourite song! You can vote for as many acts as you want, but you can only do it once, so make it count!

We will reveal your winner on Sunday, before the National Final of Selectia Nationala 2018 is aired, so make sure you cast your vote before Sunday morning at 11:00 CET.

After you vote, feel free to defend your choice in the comments section below!

I’m just in love with the song walking on water but after that I heard that the televoting decides who wins, am I thinking that feli or jukebox is gonna win AND NOT ALEXIA AND MATEI???

Alexia & Matei live performance is just too amateurish. And, they want to be like Alex and Ilinca, but they will never have that kind of chemistry.

Thu Humans will win

I love Alexia & Matei entry. It’s fresh and young, ready to be sung inside my car while speeding on highway … forgot in Moldova region or country, doesn’t matter, there are no highways 🙂

Alexia and Matei deserve to win this competition.They bring something new and fresh to the present-day musical world.Besides,I think that few are able to resist their charisma.They have good voices,as well.

I think who you think are called Alexia and Matei are actually Jukebox and Bella!!
Cause this Matei guy has really bad vocals!

Feli will win the telvote but do not so well in the jury, she placed second in the semi. Jukebox got 58 out of 60 possible jury points, they’ll probably win the jury and get 2nd in the telvote, giving them the win. I heard they’ve got a special performance for the final.

With all these songs I’ve heard through the semis, I can hardly remember the qualifiers. After a quick recap I’ll go for Jukebox, Feli, Echoes or Xandra.

Where is Safari?

It’s obviously a two-horse-race… I think I’d go with Jukebox because I’m not such a big fan of Feli by now. But I like that both of the favourites use the Romanian language.

Feli said she’ll use the English version of her song, called “Royalty” in case she wins (and she will).

Oh… In that case, I root even more for Jukebox 🙂

Since Safari got kicked out, my vote goes to Xandra, Jukebox, and Alexia and Matei.

I’m sorry for Alexia and Matei, but they will be in the shadow of the Spanish couple, and this year has too many duets anyway.
I guess will be between Feli and Jukebox.

The battle definitely will be between Feli and Jukebox ft. Bella.

Definitely Feli.

That shoutfest from Jukebox would go nowhere in Lisbon. We need some FUN songs in this dreary lineup so far. I can imagine Feli bringing Romania back into the top 10.

Definitely Jukebox or MIHAI! My third pick would be The Humans…
I love Bella’s passional way of performing, also I like Mihai’s song which would look great on the international stage.

Feli or Jukebox for me (how original). Auzi cum Nate is well performed and powerful, while Buna de iubit (which I slightly prefer) is so fun and catchy and has a great message. Obviously none of them should translate their song.
My third pick would probably be Eduard Santa.

Nobody.

All songs are just mediocre, and we don’t have even any weird, campy entries like “Yodel It” or “It’s My Life”.

I guess the winner would be either “Auzi cum bate” or “Bun? de iubit”. The first one is well performed, but very generic. The second is far from generic, but there’s nothing interesting about the song. Also it smells kinda like “Milkshake”.

Feli is great as an artist and really strong to compete in spite of her grief but come on, Buna de iubit is so annoying:/ it reminds me of Zaleilah which was downright atrocious.
Auzi cum bate deserves the ticket more than anything else this year and I hope Feli comes back in 2019 with a stronger song.

Joe

Zaleilah made the final tho. Hate it if you want, sh*t gets it done.

Gabi

I know, and I’m certain that Feli will make it too. (Her song is more tolerable than Zaleilah to my ears).
I’m actually convinced that Feli will go to Lisbon this year, I just wish she won’t because she deserves a winner song.

Xandra is the best here! She has an insanely good voice. She’s very sassy on stage and her song is decent enough! She’s Romania’s best option.

Joining the crowd and saying Feli would be a good choice. Haven’t been following this selection intensely but I have heard that one and enjoy it.

Feli or dora 🙂

60 songs and they ended up with a lot of trash in the final. Anyway, Feli will probably win, deserved I guess, but my favourite now are The Humans.

I am so glad that FELI decided not to withdraw! I am sure she is heartbroken after her father passed away but she still did a great job last week! Romania, send FELI!! Her song is way better than Yodel it, I am sure she´s gonna do great! We are all sick and tired of boring ballads, let´s have fun.

Jukebox/Bella Santiago for sure! If not, Feli for the win. Not interested in the others…

Alex
Guest

Feli for the win!
Imagine this coming after a ballad on stage and making all the venue dance.
I only hope she will keep the song in Romanian because there will be more uptempo songs and all with be in English so this will stand out.
Special mentions to Teodora Dinu, she has the best show among all the participants, Jukebox for having a catchy tune and such a talented Philipinno and Xandra although she has to work in her stage presence.

Please Romania send Feli. She brings something new for this year and she can be for sure in top 5!

Was torn between Feli and Jukebox but decided that Jukebox had the better performance. Having said that, Feli did have to perform the same week as her dad’s passing so maybe that’s an unfair conclusion to draw. Overall though, I’m pretty disappointed with this year’s selection. Romania is my favourite Eurovision country and ever since Paula Seling and Ovi in 2010 I’ve vowed to root for them every year no matter how much I may hate their song. Last year’s selection was great (and Petale was robbed!) but this year I really think it’s a three horse race between –… Read more »

Buna de iubit is everything we need tbh. Romania and its original bops, never disappoint.

We share the same favourite on this one. Feli FTW!! But I’m actually so scared that MIHAI will take it. I don’t like his song AT ALL!

It’s 100% televote, isn’t it? If this is the case, we can say bye-bye to Mihai.
