After losing its 100% qualification record in 2018 and missing out again in 2019, Romania is shaking things up with Selectia Naționala 2020. Unlike previous editions, the 1 March final will only feature one artist — Roxen. And over the course of the evening she’ll perform five songs, one of which she’ll take to Eurovision 2020. And while local fans can catch the Eurovision selection by switching their televisions to TVR 1, international viewers will need to try alternative means.
Here’s when and how you can watch the grand final of Selectia Naționala 2020 with Roxen.

Grand final — 1 March 2020
Time: 20:00 CET to 22:40 CET
The grand final of Selectia Naționala will be streamed live on the TVR website.
The selection will see Roxen perform five songs. The results will be determined by a 50/50 jury and public split.
The competing songs are:
- “Beautiful Disasters”
- “Cherry Red”
- “Alcohol You”
The show will be hosted by Eurovision veterans Elena Gheorghe and Connect-R. The former sang for Romania in 2009 while the latter was part of Moldova’s 2006 act. Both hosts are expected will sing too. Elena will reprise “Balkan Girls” with a new twist. Meanwhile, Connect-R will treat fans to one of his big hits — “Eu vara nu dorm”.
There will also be guest performances from Norway’s Ulrikke, Cyprus’ Sandro and Eurovision 2012 winner Loreen. Dora Gaitanovici, who placed sixth in the 2018 national final, will perform a medley of some of Romania’s best-loved song contest entries.
