A winner has been crowned in Moldova! SunStroke Project has won the country’s national selection O Melodi pentru Europa 2017 and will represent the nation at the Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv this May.

Following last night’s semi-final show which saw a total of 8 acts being eliminated from the competition, tonight saw the remaining 8 acts performing for a final time in a bid to represent Moldova at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest.

This evening saw the return of the country’s 2010 representative SunStroke Project in the national selection along with a composition written by the man who has produced a grand total of 24 Eurovision entries to date, Ralph Siegel.

The results

Tonight’s winner was determined via a combined 50% televote and 50% jury vote, the same process used in last night’s semi-final show.

With SunStroke Project winning the jury vote, it was down to the public televote to determine whether the winner would remain the same or whether a different entry will go on to represent the nation.

Following the combination of vote, SunStroke Project went on to win O Melodi pentru Europa 2017 with the song Hey mamma and will fly to Kyiv this May for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest. Check out Moldova’s entry below!

Moldova will compete in the second half of the first semi-final on the 9 May in a bid to bring the nation back to the final of the Eurovision Song Contest on the 13 May. Can their 2017 entry take Moldova to the final?
