Mihai Traistariu, the Romanian artist that represented his country and took the 4th place in Athens 2006, and Natalia Gordienko, Moldovan representative the same year will not participate in the Moldovan national final as rumors were suggesting.
esctoday.com contacted the 2006 Moldovan representative today and found out that Mihai Traistariu and Natalia Gordienko will record a duet, but will not participate in any national selections this year. The song is composed by a Moldovan young composer, Adrian.
Mihai wanted to represent his own country, Romania, but since the songs he was working on are composed by non-Romanian composers, he is not eligible to enter the national selection. This comes after a change in the rules, implemented on December 7th.
