Road to Liverpool: Romania

We can not wait for the Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool. Therefore, we have a closer look at one of the contestants every day. Today: Romania.

Theodor Andrei

The Romanian final has been won by Theodor Andrei. He won the contest with his own song “D.G.T. (Off and on”), that he wrote and composed together with Mikail Jahed. For the lyrics, Luca de Mezzo and Luca Udățeanu also signed.

Theodor Andrei participated in Vocea Romaniei Junior (The Voice Kids Romania). It resulted in two records: “Young and sweet” and “Și dacă azi zâmbesc”. In 2020, Theodor took part in The X-Factor Romania. After that, he had a main role in a theatre play. 2022 was the year of his debut album “Fragile” and the song “Ţigări mentolate”.

Mihai and the Eurovision Songcontest

If we have to mention someone in Romania who is connected to Eurovision, the first name that pops up is Mihai Trăistariu. He had a wish to participate in Eurovision, his dream came true but he decided to keep the dream alive. The famous Romanian singer started his career with the duo Valahia. In 2000 (“Why“), 2002 (“Mother“) and 2003 (“Friends are friends“) they participated in the Romanian national selection. In 2005, when the duo split up, he sang a duet with Nico: “All the time“. In 2006, it happened: he won the national selection and represented Romania with his song “Tornero“, which brought him a 4th place in the final!


After ten years, he wanted to do the job again. We saw him in 2016 (“Paradisio“), 2017 (“I won’t surrender“) and 2018 (“Heaven“). In 2019 he was also supposed to take part. However, he withdrew because he did not agree with the organization of the contest. In 2020, he expressed his disappointment for not being invited. That was the last time we saw him in a national final. But don’t worry, you can find him on Facebook, Instagram and OnlyFans. And yes, it is what you think it is…

Romania in the Eurovision Song Contest

Romania first took part in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1994. In the beginning, it was hard for Romania to do well. The first top-10 score was in 2002, when Monica Anghel and Marcel Pavel reached the 9th place. A very high score, 4th, was there for the afornamed Mihai. Two 3rd places were there for Romania: in 2005 (Luminița Anghel and Sistem even won the semifinal!) and for Ovi and Paula Seling in 2010. In more recent years Ilinca and Alex Florea became 7th with “Yodel it!”.

Bookmakers

The betting odds for Romania are not very hopeful this year: currently they have a 36th place, out of 37 participating countries. Let’s hope for Romania they will do better than that.
