For the first time, the Romanian public will not participate in the choice of the song that will represent them at Eurovision. Romanian broadcaster TVR has announced that for the Eurovision 2021, a jury will choose Roxen’s song..
The selection for Eurovision 2021 has started, and the Romanian representative will present several songs to the jury. The jury will then make its choice among these songs. A process already experienced by Ukraine this year. This decision is of course dictated by the constraints linked to the COVID-19 pandemic, but also for budgetary reasons
While the EBU announced to rule out a scenario A today, the head of the Romanian delegation Liana Stanciu is optimistic declaring “The Eurovision Song Contest will probably be the first music event on the planet, after a year in which the music industry suffered and live music on stage fell silent. Musicians from 41 countries will be more united than ever in Rotterdam and more eager than ever to demonstrate the miraculous and healing power of music“.
