Moldova’s national final for the Eurovision Song Contest will take place tonight at 19:00 at the TRM Studios in Chişinău. The top fourteen acts of this year’s national selection will perform live on stage for the right to represent Moldova in Malmö.
Moldova is the last country to select its entry in the Eurovision Song Contest this year. The Eastern European country decided to change the format of their national selection for 2013, opting for two separate competitions, one for the artists and one for the songs, the top 24 acts competing in the two semi-finals of O melodie pentru Europa. The best 14 acts have qualified for the grand final to be held tonight in Chişinău.
