Romania will take part in the second of the Eurovision 2018 semi finals this Thursday, with the hope of winning their way through.
They’ve only been part of the competition since 1993 and have had quite the mixed bag journey.
The Romanians have placed as high as third on two occasions (2005 and 2010), haven’t participated in four years and were even disqualified a couple of years ago for not paying their Eurovision bill.
But on the whole they punch well above their weight. Apart from 2016 (when they were disqualified), they’ve made it through to the Grand Final every year since 2002, no mean feat.
But how will The Humans and their single ‘Goodbye’ fare in 2018?
It’s a blood decent offering; starting out as a sweet piano ballad, before bursting into a big pop/rock number in the choruses, all powered along by frontwoman Cristina’s powerful vocal.
The only complaint we’d have is that it ends too abruptly.
We reckon this could do well. Neuf points.
