It was previously reported that 84 songs were submitted to TVR for Selecția Națională 2017, where the Romanian entry for this year’s Eurovision will be chosen. In order to make it more exciting, as in neighbouring countries (as Moldova or Belarus) the public will be able to see and hear the shortlisting process during a special set of programs.

The jury which will pick the fifteen semifinalists during the live auditions phase as well as the ten finalists during the semifinal is made of five Romanian Eurovision stars:

  • Luminiţa Anghel – reached the third place in Eurovision 2005 with Sistem and their song Let me try
  • Paula Seling & Ovi Jacobsen – represented Romanian twice, finishing third in 2010 with Playing with fire and 12th in 2014 with Miracle
  • Andrei Tudor – Composer of the 2008 Romanian entry Pe-o margine de lume
  • Adrian Romcescu – Composer and conductor of the 1998 Romanian entry Eu cred

Starting tomorrow (27 January) and up to Sunday (29 January), the jury will listen to the submitted entries in TVR Studio 3. The process will be recorded and broadcasted daily from 5 to 11 February, and the fifteen semifinalists will be announced during a live show on 12 February. All shows will begin at 20:00 local time (19:00 CET) on TVR2, TVR HD, TVR Moldova and TVR International.

Although a total of 84 entries were submitted, TVR’s shortlist for the auditions, as published online, includes the following 72 entries. A notable entrant is Mihai Traistariu, previously achieving a fourth place for Romania at the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest:
