Moldova‘s 24 Eurovision hopefuls gathered in Chisinau today to draw their running order for the semi-finals of O melodie pentru Europa 2016 on 23 and 25 February. Doinita Gherman opens the first semi, while Elle will inexplicably close the second one after they announced their withdrawal.

First semi-final running order

  1. Doinita Gherman – “Irresistible”
  2. Valentina Nejel – “Va fi tarziu”
  3. Valeria Pasa – “Save love”
  4. Russu Emilia – “I am not the same”
  5. Che-MD – “Voda e cu noi”
  6. Chris Maroo – “Tonight”

  9. DoReDoS – “FunnyFolk”
  10. Viola – “In the name of love”

  12. PRIZA – “Rewind”

Second Semi-final running order

  1. Rodica and Ivan Aculov – “Stop lying”
  2. Lidia Isac – “Falling Stars”
  3. Cristina Pintilie – “Picture of love”
  4. Diana Brescan – “Till the End”
  5. Max Fall feat Dan Vozniuc & Malloy – “Game lOVER”
  6. Andrei Ionita & Onoffrei – “Lie”
  7. Felicia Dunaf – “You and Me”
  8. Nadia Mosneagu – “Memories”
  9. Big Flash Sound – “Când vrei”
  10. Anna Gulko – “Never let go”
  11. Beatrice – “Saved my heart for you”
  12. Vitalie Todirascu – “Belladonna”*

*Update: Vitalie Todirascu replaced Elle, who were previously drawn to perform last in the scond semi-final. Elle officially withdrew from the contest five days after the running order draw.

Asked about Elle’s presence in the second semi-final, band manager Alla Dontu confirmed to wiwibloggs that the band did withdraw from the selection and that their placing in the line-up is a “misinformation”. Apparently Elle have failed to officially notify TRM, which drew their order for them in their absence.

Until the air clears, what do you think about Moldova’s line-up? Is Doinita in peril? And don’t forget you can still vote in our Moldova poll!

Piesa mea “Insane (Against Corruption) conform punctajului juriului din Romania e printre primele 18 piese din 94. Aceasta este inca o dovada ca in Republica Moldova toti acesti 10 ani am fost subestimat si discriminat. De exemplu, daca in semifinala Romaniei participau 24 de piese asa cum in Moldova anul acesta, as fi intrat in semifinala.
