Sinada, Well-o-wee and Dracula, my love have all been disqualified from the Romania final after it became clear to TVR that they had all been performed publicly prior to 1 October 2006. The national final next week will now take place with only nine songs, but there is no question of cancelling the final or replacing the disqualified entries at this stage. The news has been confirmed to esctoday.com

It has not yet been announced how TVR will fill the additional broadcasting time, or whether there will be a reduction in the length of the national final broadcast.
