About the song Yodel It!
The song is written by Mihai Alexandru and Alexandra Niculae. The first wrote the song with Ilinca in his mind as a member of Timebelle, the Swiss representatives. After the song’s first recording, something felt incomplete, so Alex’s contribution was requested. It combines yodeling with rap, hip-hop and pop elements, with Ilinca yodeling during the chorus. After the audition stage and one semi-final, the song received the highest amount of points in the final, so it was declared as the winning one.
