Romania: Six last qualifiers complete grand final line-up

“Goodbye” semi-finals, it is all set to “Yodel It” in Bucarest!

Tonight, the second and last semifinal of the well-known annual Selecţia Naţională in Romania took place in the city of Arad. The remaining 12 acts went on stage to compete for one of the 6 available remaining spots in the grand final which will take place next week in Bucarest. Ilinca Avram and Aurelian Temişan were the two hosts in charge of introducing this exciting evening to the Romanian public.
