Romanian national selection for Eurovision Selecția Națională 2019 originally featured three Eurovision veterans: the Romanian debut artist Dan Bittman back in 1994 (with fabulous Dincolo de nori), Nicola from 2003 (with Don't break my heart) and unmissable MIHAI. Then all of sudden Dan Bittman withdraw and we were left with 23 entries only....
Another regular Xandra is back once again and the cast includes also Australian born Xonia and Belgian Olivier Kaye (song written by Ovidiu) as well as American Laura Bretan.
Sadly the overal standard of songs is so low MIHAI shines bright as one of the bests with his oh so fashionable latin beats.
There will be two semifinals and grand final.
Below is my first hearing, first impression ranking.
