Todomondo, the Romanian representatives for the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 in Helsinki , accepted the invitation of the Belarussian Television to spend last weekend in Minsk giving lots of interviews and participating in several TV shows. But that�s not all. .

In Minsk, the band had a little free time for sightseeing, visiting some historic monuments, churches and the national library. On Saturday, they held a press conference where they answered all questions regarding their participationin the Eurovision Song Contest plus they gave interviews to 3 radio stations and they participatedin the “Vase loto” showperforming their song “Liubi liubi I love you”.
But the big surprise came afterwards when Dima Koldun, the Belarussian representative, invited Todomondo to a dinner he cooked himself. “He prepared some meatballs that were really delicious. The name of the meatballs was Kolduni, just like his name, but unfortunately I couldn’t eat them 'cause they were made of pork meat" declared Kamara, The French. The day ended with Todomondo giving a mini concertin a very popular club in Minsk.
On their way back to Romania the six members of the group had the chance to visit Poland’s capital, Warsaw, but they got separated, half of them visiting the historical centre of the city while the others wandering around the city. At the airport, when they met again, Kamara claimed that he had lost his passport and Ciro de Luca, the Italian, announced that their flight has been canceled. But fortunately they were April Fool'sjokes.

Romanian fans' hearts missed a beat when Dan Manoliu, the Eurovision Coordinator of the Romanian National Television, made a joke on Sunday’s show “Autostrada”announcing that Todomondo had split up. He even showed video footage with the six members fighting , abusing each other and swearing. The show, though, had a happy end when it was revealed that everything was just a joke.

Todomondo will be performing directlyin the final due to Mihai Traistariu’s 4th place to Athens last year and they willsing 20th as decided bythe draw that took place on the 13th of March.
