Romania decided to send Paula Seling & Ovi to Copenhagen - after the duo won the national selection. Was this the best Romania had to offer? I think so. But that doesn't mean it was my favourite in the selection, even though I did really like Miracle! Favourites of mine included:
Vaida - One More Time
Vaida won the televote and came runner-up with One More Time. The reason she didn't win was because the jury slaughtered her and only awarded her four points.. therefore Paula and Ovi had more points overall - and therefore they won! This is a peaceful song. Her voice is sweet and the performance was also very nice... It would have made the final in Copenhagen.
Stefan Stan feat. TeddyK - Breathe
Breath was a haunting duet sung by two extraordinary singers! I thought their performance could be messy but it was actually a very beautiful and touching presentation.. Stefan Stan won the Romanian version of 'The Voice' in 2011. The juries would've adored this and it could have been a dark horse... Very good indeed! They came 5th overall.
Renee Santana feat. Mike Diamondz - Letting go
Finally, we have my favourite! Letting Go was fun, modern and very catchy. Renee's live vocals weren't the best though and maybe this is why the Romanian public didn't vote for them? There's just something fabulous about this one... Would they have done well in Eurovision? It' hard to say, but I would have voted for them! :')
