It’s just broken that Elena Gheorghe, Romania’s Eurovision representative, will fly to Moscow on a “personal” plane after a deal was reached between Romania’s TVR network and Blue Air, a Romanian airline.
“We are sure that our effort will be repaid in the moment when Elena will fully succeed through her talent and will make millions of viewers from Europe, talk about her and Romania,” Gheorghe Racaru, General Director of Blue Air, said.
Is The Balkan Girls singer being a bit lavish? A typical flight between Bucharest and Moscow only takes one hour and 52 minutes. Why does she need a private plane? I don’t think she’ll be practicing her moves in flightâ€”she might break something! I suspect that Romanian officials realize they have a hit with this one, and don’t want her to be attacked by throngs of fans at the airport. I suppose I’m just shocked that a daughter of priests would accept a private jet during the ongoing recession. So much for cutting back!
