After two exciting semi-finals on Tuesday and Thursday, it is time for Moldova to choose its musical envoy to Copenhagen on Saturday night’s national final. But before then, you get to cast your vote first!
Could Saturday be Boris Covalis “Perfect Day” or might Cristina Scarlat’s “Wild Soul” prevail? Both songs won their respective semi-finals, but this does not mean that the winner is necessarily one of them. Last year, Boris was also first in his semi-final and finished first in the televoters’ eyes in the final, but Aliona Moon, who was third in the semi-final, still managed to steal Boris’s spotlight and shot to Eurovision stardom in Sweden with “O mie”. This year, Boris admitted that he put in excess of 10.000 dollars behind his show (dude literally makes it rain, y’all!), so he does indeed mean business. But could Cristina outdo Boris or is another Aliona lurking among the 16 contestants who will battle it out on the big night? What do you think?
But first, let’s refresh our memory and listen to the songs again, this time in the running order drawn by the finalists. (Mind you, not all clips from the second semi-final were readily available when we published the poll.)
