As explained properly in the article below, Moldova are suffering from budgeting constraints and the channel's producer says that an internal selection is a significant possibility. I think this would be a good move for Moldova even if it wasn't forced by budget as O Melodie Pentru Europa has really struggled to provide quality in recent years and is often tied up in one controversy or another. Although Mihai from Romania has said he wants to represent Moldova so perhaps he'll be happy to sponsor his own participation?

Despite vowing never to return to Moldova's selection after Joseph's plaything Eduard Romanyuta ~rigged~ it in 2015, they have seemingly realised they cannot resist Eurovision's charms any longer. Sunstroke Project are back with a very on-trend dance bop mixing UK chart faves such as Cheap Thrills, Mr. Saxobeat and Gecko (Overdrive) into a single dance anthem!



The deadline in Moldova is tomorrow and only 11 songs have been submitted so far, although amongst them is rumoured to be Boris Cavali (was favourite to win a couple of years ago until he withdrew) and a Natalia Barbu/Mihai collab so there could be some competition. But Hey Mamma is EXACTLY what Moldova need!

Boris has withdrawn again so SunStroke Project *should* be the clear favourites now...

I remember Sunstroke Project. This song is awesome as previous. If they will represent Moldova, I predict Top 7!

TOMORROW'S NATIONAL FINAL...
MOLDOVA



O melodie pentru Europa


25th February 2017
Begins at 5.35pm in the UK, 6.35pm Central European Time or 7.35pm in Moldova.
Programme is scheduled to last 2 hours 20 minutes.

Watch the selection via the official TRM webcast.


Running order
01. SunStroke Project - Hey Mamma
02. Samir Loghin - Glow
03. Valeria Pașa - Freedom
04. Aurel Chirtoacă - Dor de mamă
05. Diana Brescan - Breathe
06. Marks & Ștefăneț - Join Us in the Rain
07. Ethno Republic & Surorile Osoianu - Discover Moldova
08. Vozniuc feat. Vio Grecu - Don't Lie

Voting format
The winner will be chosen via a 50/50 split between televoting and jury voting. Each will award a set of 12 to 1 points and the artist with the most points when the two are added together will be the winner. Based on last year, in the event of a tie the jury vote will take precedence.

The favourites to win
In the semi-final, there was a clear top two of SunStroke Project and Ethno Republic & Surorile Osoianu. As these qualified on jury votes alone, we don't know their televoting support. However, none of the other acts received much televoting support, so it would seem that one of these two acts will be the winner.

Looks like we had a last minute rule change as Sunstroke Project win after tying for 1st, but they won the televote and that seemed to take precedence in the end!

Finally Moldova are heading back to the Eurovision final cheer.gif

Great mix between quirkiness and quality! Only criticism I have is that it slightly loses momentum 30 seconds before the end, but this is a welcome return to form for Moldova.

*.*

Someone needs to inform the curators of memes from years gone by.

(actually I'm quite surprised with the overuse of 'meme' to apply to every little thing in modern society that Moldova didn't try this so hard the first time Sunstroke Project came back)

On the actual song, it's alright but definitely relies on the sax hard. More so than Run Away, I think this one will be lucky to qualify and will be riding on memories of their previous appearance to do so.
