Todomondo, the group that will represent Romania to this year�s Eurovision Song Contest to Helsinki appeared on the Romanian National television where they gave an interview to the host of the show �Weekend partners�, Stefan Lungu.
Todomondo talked about everything. They declared that they actually represent 6 nations due to their multinational song “Liubi liubi I love you” which is in 6 different languages. They are going to Helsinki wishing to take the first place spreading the message that love has no frontiers.
Todomondo declared that they are a happy family. Stefan wanted to know who the woman is in the family but Todomondo answered that there is no woman, it is just the six brothers with mother TVR and dad Dan Manoliu (Dan is the Eurovision co-ordinator for TVR)
All the six members of the group have listened to this year’s entries for the Eurovision Song Contest and they found them very interesting hoping though that Liubi liubi I love you will be number one. When asked by Stefan Lungu which is the entry they fear most, they replied that they only fear God.
