Stop voting! wiwibloggs readers have cast their ballots and we now have six clear favourites to advance from tonight’s first semi-final in the Selectia Nationala.

With 22.53% of the votes, vocal powerhouse Diana Hetea is expected to fly straight to the 9 March final with her sweeping ballad “I Believe in Love”. She is followed by boyband Station 4 (“Your Heart Is Telling Me So”), 2012 Selectia Nationala finalists Electric Fence (“Emilia”), Eurovision veteran Luminita Anghel (“Unique”), newcomer Tammy (“Firebird”) and Moldovan Natalia Barbu (“Confession”).

Sing it, Diana!

We will see if the Romanian televoters – and jury – agree with you guys. The latest (bad) news is that TVR has been hit by what looks like a flu epidemic, which has affected almost every singer involved, including Paula Seling, one of the “Romanian Abba” hosts. Hopefully, by the time the first semi-final airs (20:00 CET) on TVR1 and on the five (!) cameras available on, everyone will be in top form and the highly anticipated and never disappointing Romanian Selectia Nationala will deliver big time.

Until then, here is Diana Hetea, your favourite, with her ballad “I Believe in Love”, written by Jonas Gladnikoff, Johnny Sanchez, Sara Ljunggren, Anders Köllerfors and Michael James Down. Good luck to all contestants tonight! Noroc!
