Moldova Doredos My Lucky Day official video Santorini
Moldova, Marina Djundiet, 1

DoReDos, the winning trio of Moldova‘s national selection O melodie pentru Europa 2018, have released the official video for “My Lucky Day”.

Shot in Santorini, Greece, the video brings a summery, Mediterranean flavour to Philipp Kirkorov’s song.

Happy, bright and full of cheer and humour — it conveys the feelings behind the country’s most successful efforts at Eurovision (as with SunStroke Project in 2017).

The video for “My Lucky Day” was filmed on the Greek island of Santorini last week. Ironically, it wasn’t filmed on a very lucky day for the Moldovan trio.

Although DoReDos had hoped for a warm, sunny day, the sky was partly overcast and temperatures were still frigid.

Nonetheless, Marina Djundiet bravely donned a series of flowing dresses and a sunhat to throw shade for days, and DoReDos managed to convey that summer vibe flowing throughout “My Lucky Day”.

Interestingly, the official video keeps the National Final version of the song, and not the DJ Shantel remix that was rumoured to become the final version. That is despite the fact that, at least as far as our wiwireaders are concerned, this would have been a better option.

In a poll on our website, the remix was preferred by almost 60% of the fans.

Marina Djundiet, Evgeny Andrianov and Sergiu Mita are now getting ready for the promo tour.

DoReDos is among the first acts confirmed for Eurovision Preparty Riga 2018 — and this is just the beginning.

Together with songwriter and producer Philipp Kirkorov, they’re also putting together a memorable performance for Lisbon, details of which will emerge in due course.

Recently, the trio met with the Moldovan president Igor Dodon, who took a selfie with the entire Moldova team, including Philipp Kirkorov.

DoReDos have friends in high places!

If these idiots don’t go with the infinitely superior Shantel mix in the semi, they deserve all they get.

It’s a fun song, it’s different and stands out from the rest (in the good way), but also a bit dated for some audiences. Anyway, I like it. It’s in my top 10 list. I also think it has a chance too if some audiences prefer a non-techno pop song . The live performance in the national selection makes this song more interesting because it’s well planned. I hope it will succeed in Lisbon. Note – the video’s plot is confusing. So is it about 2 guys are chasing the same girl and end up with 3-some? hahaha #kidding I… Read more »

The spicy plot can be implicitly taken from the context and video/staging. The song itself is about having a good time.

For everyone complaining about how this song is cheap, remember this was one of the most expensive and coherent songs in that horrible finals. This could have been Dance in Flames, Alien or even Come To Life. So, some respect, please!

When Moldova starts having a proper NF. I mean, it was fun, in a disasterous sort of way. Moldova is the ONLY country to have a song which I rated with a 0/10 in their NF. And not one, but two (Beauty Song, Maybe it’s Love). Plus about 15 songs under a 5/10. Only my top 4 were above a 7/10. Luckily, one of them was picked and they actually might qualify.

For the poorest country in Europe, with so many problems, it’s not the best way to spend people’s money.

poorest country in Europe with so many problems – perfect definition for Armenia, Georgia, Ukraine, Macedonia, Albania… The thing is that Moldovan (as well as Armenian, Ukrainian, Georgian…) broadcaster spend money as much as they are expect to earn from advertisements and broadcasting sponsorship. You earn money, you spend it. BTW Ukrainian broadcast may go bankrupt in April and there is a low possibility they won’t take part.

It’s still bottom 3 worthy… out of 43. And the video… I would’ve chosen the Romanian performance instead.
