Tonight, 12 acts will compete in Selectia Nationala 2015 – Romania’s national selection for Eurovision. You can watch it live from Craiova’s Sala Polivalenta starting 19:30 CET on the eurovision.tv web player. You can find the running order here. And, if our fan poll and Wiwi Jury are any indicators, Luminita Anghel should win with “A Million Stars”.

For several weeks, the team at wiwibloggs has been running a Wiwi Jury. Luminita placed third. Separate to this, we collected 3,966 votes in a fan poll and Luminita came out on top. According to the combined results of our Wiwi Jury and the fan poll, Luminita should make a return to the Eurovision Song Contest stage, ten years after she placed third in Kyiv with “Let Me Try” featuring Sistem.

Below you can see our scoreboard, and then the individual results from our fan poll and our Wiwi Jury rankings.

I don’t know Romanian, but did I hear right, that Ovidiu Anton finished 3rd and Luminita Anghel finished 2nd?

If that’s right, then it looks as if Voltaj will take it.

If the Romanians want something different and modern listen out for Blue Noise’s “Love Won’t Run Away”. Every sound on the track is made from their 6 voices. They are promising a different and unique experience. I’d like to see it do really well because they are thinking outside the box and entering something that is original and different from all the rest. I hope it is the surprise package of the night. With so many predictions, it looks like it could be out of any 6 or 7 songs……………..should be an exciting contest then which is good. TVR have… Read more »

I like Luminita’s song, but I don’t think it’s a good choice for Romania right now, with all the female solo acts we already have. I detest Lara Lee and CEJ, Voltaj is okay but kinda boring. Cristina and Baietii are my faves, but they stand no chance.

Lara Lee is my favorite no. 1 with “Superman”! She has a great song, a great voice and a professional international team behind her.
I listen to this song every day.

My second favorite would be CEJ. I also like Blue Noise, Tudor Turcu and Cristina Vasiu.
I really like Luminita Anghel but her song is way too overrated. There are already too many ballads in the contest so she can’t take it to the top with her song.
Maybe next year!

I think the winner will be Lara or Voltaj. Hopefully Voltaj’s early running draw killed their chances though. I’d really love to see Lara or Cristina in Eurovision, but I also like the songs by CEJ and Blue Noise. Luminita’s only ranked high because she’s Luminita. She has no chance at winning.

I hope it will be Lara Lee. It all stands on the televoter’s decision, because the jury in Romania will sure give Luminita the most points.

Lara Lee puh-lease

I don’t get the hype for this song, she sings some weird lyrics, with cheap dubstepnoises and a very big accent in the studio version, I can imagine how it would sound live. Good luck to her though.

@Kratos: I am Romanian and I think we would repeat the result of last year if we chose Luminita, somewhere between 10th-20th but certainly not top 10. I’ll be voting for either Lara Lee or Voltaj tonight, btw.

Kratos – I’m certainly not Romanian, can’t you read? I obviously offended you? It’s just an opinion and that’s it!!

@EUGENE ESC UK Shut up you are just a romanian who pretend be a foreign , and try to insult the winner team , get a life Romania will win this year with A million Stars:X

There could be another upset here!! “A Million Stars” is an obvious choice but if it gets to the ESC it’s just going to be forgotten, it’s not good enough to make any impression for the top positions. It’s just another solo female with a powerful voice and another ballad which is just going to merge with all the others into a blur and won’t stand out. There were only 4 solo females in the Top 20 last year, so it would not be a good choice for Romania. She has a good draw though and the juries will vote… Read more »

Hopefully Luminita will NOT win tonight’s selection! I don’t want to be represented by “A Million Yawns”!!! Fingers crossed for Voltaj or Lara Lee!

I’m sorry but ‘A Million Stars’ is just so dull. ‘Superman’ in my opinion would do best for Vienna.
