National broadcaster Teleradio Moldova (TRM) has confirmed to wiwibloggs that Moldova will be present in Vienna next year.
The country that gave us the memorable “Bunica bate toba”, the infectious “Hora din Moldova”, the biggest ever Eurovision dress and the global meme phenomenon Epic Sax Guy is back. Despite a low year in 2014, when Cristina Scarlat failed to qualify for the Grand Final with “Wild Soul”, Moldova is picking up the pieces and rejoins the Eurovision Song Contest. We couldn’t be more excited!
For the time being, details about the national selection “O melodie pentru Europa” have not been made public, but hopefully it will be as crazy, dramatic and entertaining as this year.
We contacted Moldova’s Head of Delegation Vitalie Rotaru who confirmed the news and also said that, while Moldova has not selected its representative for Junior Eurovision, this does not mean that the country is withdrawing.
Moldova entered Junior Eurovision in 2010 and finished 8th, 6th, 10th and 11th since then, respectively. Earlier this year, rumour had it that Denis Midone, who represented the country in 2012, might come back to the Junior Eurovision stage in 2014, but so far TRM has not made any official announcement.
Here is Denis Midone’s bid for Junion Eurovision 2014 “Spune-mi ce va fi/Chemistry”, as performed live at Music For Kids festival in Iasi, Romania last week:
Meanwhile, until Moldova confirms participation in Malta, let’s celebrate its return to the adult Eurovision stage! This is how we feel right now:
What about you? Who would you like to represent Moldova in Vienna?
