11 December – I can fly always and reach the stars

Have you ever spotted that in the real music world there are more and more collaborations? “Rap star X featuring sexy lady and proper musician” sing your latest grime track?

Well, these endless lists of combos featuring this artist and that artist has also touched on our favourite TV show. Back in 2006, Moldova sent one. It was the snappily named Arsenium and Natalia Gordianco featuring Connect-R. It just rolls off the tongue. Natalia is today’s birthday girl. You’ll spot her as the one who shows her legs and bares her midriff. There is indeed something for everyone in the three minutes Natalia and her chums are on stage. Including a big sail. Genius. Anyway, in 2006, Moldova had already qualified for the Saturday, so the pressure was off on the Thursday before Grand Final day. And what happened? Well, they two of the then Big Four, and almost beat a third. And they got a maximum. Can you guess where it came from?

Natalia is 32 today.

La mulți ani, Natalia!
