Romania has just decided the song Roxen will bring to the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. The young singer will perform ‘Alcohol You’ in Rotterdam.
The last phase of the 2020 Romanian national selection has taken place today, a live final where Roxen delivered five original songs for the public and experts to choose her entry for Eurovision.
A few days ago, the best Romanian composers took part in a songwriting camp where they wrote songs based on Roxen’s voice type, vocal range and personality. 5 compositions were selected for a national final by songwriters, lyricists, musicologists, tv/radio music-show producers and music directors:
- Alcohol You (Ionuț Armas, Breyan Isaac and Viky Red)
- Storm (Minelli and Viky Red)
- Beautiful Disaster (Alex Cotoi, Julie Frost and Breyan Isaac)
- Cherry Red (Sebastian Barac, Marcel Botezan, Costel Dominteanu and Theea Miculescu)
- Colors (Alex Cotoi, Julie Frost and Breyan Isaac)
An equal combination of the voting of a professional jury panel and the audience determined the song that the Romanian representative will perform in Rotterdam. The expert panel was made up of Luminiţa Anghel, Crina Mardare, Alin Oprea, Edward Sanda and Andrei Tudor.
