Romania: Voltaj




One of this year’s few groups, and few entries to be sung (at least in part) in its home language, more songs like this belong in the Eurovision Song Contest. It’s native without relying on a gimmick, and holds a heartfelt message with a sincerity on par with one of my favourites from last year, the Croatian wonders of Klapa s Mora. Alongside the language factor, how this is staged will sway its chances of making it into the final. It’s strong, and Romania deserves the chance.

Hello Europe, it’s Camilla calling! Here are the points from the House of Apcar vote.
