Last Thursday’s announcement of the changes in the way the running order of the next Eurovision Song Contest will be done has triggered a great number of reactions from fans and broadcasters. Mr. Vitalie Cojocaru the Head of the Moldovan Eurovision delegation has expressed that he has mixed opinions about the new rules regarding the running order.
Mr. Vitalie Cojocaru, Head of Delegation at the Eurovision Song Contest for Moldova understands that the change will help the show from the producer’s point of view but as a participant he states he would not be happy to be told his country will have to perform in the first slots as everyone prefers to perform in the last ones.
Mr. Vitalie Cojocaru told Esctoday: ” I have mixed feelings about this new rule. I can understand the producer’s view on this, he will want to make the show more interesting and exciting. As a television show it can work out well. But it’s not good from the participant’s point of view. As a participating country or a participant (artist) I would not like to be told instantly that I have to sing in the first positions of the running order. Everyone is afraid to sing in the first positions and mostly everyone prefers singing in the last positions”.
