TVR has just published the calendar for the Romanian National Selection for Eurovision 2013. Starting tomorrow until the 3rd of February, the songs can be submited on audio CD at the TVR studios in Bucharest, but also at the local studios in Cluj Napoca, Iasi, Timisoara and Craiova. The preselections will be held as following:
06 February – Iasi
08 February – Cluj Napoca
10 February – Timisoara
12 February – Craiova
14 February – Bucharest
On February 18 the songs that have been selected for the Semifinals will be announced (minimum 24 songs, maximum 28). The Semifinals will be held on 23 and 24 February, with 6 songs qualifying from each Semifinal. The Final will be held on the 9th of March and will consist of 12 songs.
“This year, we decided to make it easy for the artists and the composers to submit their songs, that’s why the entries can be submited at the local TVR studios as well. Hopefully, this will encourage new artists and composers to participate. Also, this way the jury will have the oportunity to listen to the songs live before the Semifianls” stated Dan Manoliu, the head of the Romanian delegation for Eurovision 2013.
