Last night, during a live broadcast in Romania, TVR‘s expert jury picked the 15 semi-finalists for Romania’s Selectia Nationala 2017. And on 26 February five more heads will roll as the jury cuts them down to ten finalists. As we wait for the battle of voices and questionable choreography to commence, we just have to ask: Who do you think should make it through?
According to TVR’s new rules for organising Selectia Nationala 2017, the expert jury had to sit through 72 live auditions before picking the semi-finalists. This enabled them to make an informed opinion based on the act’s singing abilities and stage presence, as opposed to their ability to be Auto-Tuned. And while the jurors are moving things from 72 to 15 and soon to 10, the competition’s 5 March final will be decided solely by the public.
In any event, let’s practice power to the people. You can listen to all of the songs — listed in alphabetical order of the artists’ names — below. Then vote in our poll. We will close the poll on the day of the semi-final (26 February), when we will present the results. Choose carefully…Romania is watching!
