Romania was on to something in ESC a few years back, making top 5 two years in a row with “Let Me Try” and “Tornerò” in 2005 and 2006. And we thank them for bringing the Italian language back into Eurovision, we so wish that Italy would return to the competition, but that’s a completely different story. Since then Romania seem to have lost their way a bit, but this year they’re back with a vengeance!
For us Norwegians there’s so many countries to cheer for this year, and Romania is one of them because of Ovi, the Rumanian/Norwegian guy from the paradise beaches of Jæren, on the southwestern tip of Norway. Surfs up! Ovi has joined forces with the fab Paula Seling and what a team they make. This pair will set Telenor Arena on fire with their sassy bloke vs chick duel, and we love the double black’n white grand pianos. Whatever you do Ovi and Paula, please keep these grand pianos for your performance in Oslo!
Hurray for Romania, and welcome to the final!
