The country’s last two entries ended in the top 10. And now it’s time for Moldova to start looking for their next Eurovision entry.
The submission process for the 2019 edition of O melodie pentru Europa has now opened and will close at 5pm on January 18, 2019. Those interested in submitting can either hand in a physical copy at the headquarters of the Moldovan national tv station, or send in an application with an MP3 file by email.
But it not just enough to send in a simple MP3 file to make it to the pot. Each submission needs to include few more details.
- Proof that it hasn’t been published before September 1, 2018
- Confirmation that it is indeed an original piece written and composed by those who put their name on the paper
- A written-down version of the lyrics including a translation if they are not in Romanian
The broadcaster also encourages participants to include photos and/or videos of all participants and how they vision the staging of their submissions.
The 2019 edition of O melodie pentru Europa will consist of one semifinal and a final. The semifinal will be held on March 2 and the final the day after on March 3, so there won’t be a lot of time for those who make it out of the semifinal to spruce up the acts or make any changes for the final. You will be able to follow both shows through a live broadcast by Moldova 1.
