CHISINAU, MOLDOVA – Elle are ending the saga with their song “Tare” and announce their withdrawal from Moldovan national selection stating also they are not submitting a song in Romanian selection as well.
The Elle girls said to our colleagues at wiwibloggos.com: We are withdrawing from the Moldovan selection. Neither “Extaz” not “Tare” will be part of the contest. Music is important, but dirty business and scheming are not cute. And we do not intend to enter either song in Romania’s Selectia Nationala. Thanks for all your support!
After Katherine and Litesound from the nation selection with their song “Imagine” the national selection of Moldova marked by another withdrawal and once again the rumours and gossip around the way the national selection is conducted risen to the rest of us. We all see “shadows” in the Moldovan selection and procedure.
TRM has not made any statement about it nor announced a replacement.
The Elle trio which was including Dara and Natalia Barbu suffered the loss to Tania Cerga which was replaced by Ale Blake. This forced the participants to submit “Extaz” over “Tare” which was originally participating in the national selection. The song “Extaz” was not accepted because it was not within the submission dates. (a mess!)
There are many on the web wondering “Who’s the lucky one in Moldova who will pay to win the national selection” and that’s no secret as in 2015 there were allegations that Eduard Romanyuta brides the jury. Unfortuantely under this “shadows” the bad thing is that the winner of “O Melodie Pentru Europa 2016” will be plunged with these “shadows” once again, mainly due to the rumours.
