Apparently, in a very uncharacteristic move, TRM the Moldovan broadcaster has announced a 36-song long list for its selection process.
Interest is (apparently) so high that as of 19:50 (GMT) today, the TRM website went offline! That list must be damn good.
Sasha Bognibov has finally scored a place in the long list. His previous attempts have included “I Love The Girls Of 13 Years Old”, “Do You Like My Sexy Lips?” and “Fuck Me Once”. This year ‘Big brother’ warns of leaving fingerprints on every girl you touch. Enlightenment not having yet reached Moldova.
No national final
The acts get to perform their songs live in front of a jury – usually in what looks like the conference room of a low budget hotel on a factory estate. A jury then decides which songs to shortlist. We get to watch online.
There has been no mention of a public national final – and given low viewing numbers in recent years, it’s no shocker to suppose the jury will decide who gets a return coach ticket to Rotterdam.
