Eurovision Eurovision 2024 Romania

Romania 2024: At the end of January we know whether this country will participate in the upcoming contest

On January 25th 2024 the Board of Directors of TVR, the Romanian national broadcaster, will vote whether this country will compete in the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 in Malmö (Sweden).

What is keeping Romania from making a final decision?

The Board of Directors needs to approve TVR’s budget propositions; this also means that there needs to be a vote about whether Romania will participate in the upcoming song contest, but also other costs that are related to the contest.

Soon after the vote a public statement will be given about Romania’s possible participation or absence in the contest.

How is it possible that Romania can still participate in the upcoming contest?

The reason why it is still possible for Romania to compete in the upcoming contest is because the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) gave Romania until the end of January 2024 to make its final decision. No decision will be made until after the upcoming voting session of TVR’s Board of Directors.

How much does Romania have to pay in order for the country to compete?

The costs to compete in the Eurovision Song Contest are high, and each and every year national public broadcasters are looking into whether they have the funds to compete. The costs for countries to compete in Eurovision 2024 exceed well over 100,000 euro.

In comparison: In 2024, Romania’s spendings for Eurovision were well over 380,000 euro, making a vote about funds no unnecessary luxury.

What can be said about Romania’s most current history in Eurovision?

About Romania’s most recent history in Eurovision we can say the following: In 10 years’ time, Romania competed 9 times (1 contest was cancelled due to the global pandemic) In the remaining 9 participations Romania was in the Grand Final 4 times, did not make it into the Final 4 times, and was disqualified 1 time. Romania’s best result in the last 10 years was in 2017 when Ilinca feat. Alex Florea sang the song “Yodel It!”, ending 7th in the Grand Final.
