Romania, one of the last countries to be choosing the representative for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest, are holding the last stage of their Selecţia Naţională tonight at 20.00 CET in Bucharest.
Twelve acts will be competing this evening in the Selecţia Naţională Final. After a long selection process which covered the entire country, the time has come to find out which of the dozen qualifiers of the semi-final will win the golden ticket to Sweden. The show starts at 20.00 and will be broadcast live on TVR 1 , TVR HD and TVR International. International fans can watch online via TVR, TVR+ and eurovision.tv.
The hosts and guests
The show will be hosted by Paula Seling, Ovi, Andreea Bănică and Marius Rizea in the role of the legendary disco band Boney M. The special guest of the evening is Alyona Lanskaya from Belarus who will perform for the first time Solayoh, the new song which recently replaced Rhythm of love, the one she won the Belorussian final with. The audience will also be treated to a mini concert by hosts Paula Seling and Ovi, who represented Romania in 2010, repeating Luminiţa Anghel’s achievement in 2005, a respectable third place. Finally, local superstar Andreea Bănică will also be performing a song tonight.
