Moldova at the Eurovision Song Contest

Since its debut in 2005, Moldova has maintained a consistent presence at the Eurovision Song Contest, leaving a notable mark over the years. Notable successes include Zdob și Zdub’s second-place finish in the semifinals and sixth place in the grand final in 2005.

Throughout Moldova’s Eurovision history, they have reached the final 11 out of 16 times. A highlight came in 2017 when SunStroke Project secured third place with the catchy “Hey, Mamma!” amassing 374 points, the country’s best performance to date.

Despite its successful history, Moldova has faced challenges in recent years, with four non-qualifications in the last seven participations since 2014 (in 2008, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2019). Moldova maintains a solid average of 120.18 points in the grand final, solidifying its position as a respected Eurovision participant.

Despite the ups and downs, Moldova’s ability to surprise and captivate the European audience through unique performances has been a constant. A prime example is DoReDos, whose song “My Lucky Day” and historic staging earned 209 points, securing a tenth-place finish in the final standings.
