Last but not least, Moldova was the last country to select its representative for the Eurovision Song Contest. Aliona Moon won the right to represent the Eastern European country in Malmö with the song A million.
Moldova was 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.
Aliona Moon won the national final with the song A million which was written by Pasha Parfeny, Yuliana Scutari and Serghei Legheida. Pasha Parfeny represented Moldova himself last year with Lautar, missing out the top 10 by one place. It was a close race tonight in Chisinau, Aliona came first with 22 points, followed by Boris Covali with 20 points, in third place came Cristina Scarlat with 17 points. Although Aliona was the jury favourite, it was Boris Covali who won the televoters’ douze points.
Moldova will perform in the second half of the Semi final 1.
