After a marathon national final, Moldova has decided to send Geta Burlacu to the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest with a melodic, jazzy song, A century of love.

Geta tied today when both her and Olia Tira received 12 points from the two juries. She placed second in the televoting, receiving almost 3.000 votes less than Alexa who was the public's undisputed favourite.

Geta Burlacu's song is A century of love, a rhytmic, jazzy song which she performed to perfection tonight. Moldova will be competing in the first Eurovision Song Contest semi final, on 20th May, in Belgrade.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined esctoday.com in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
