It’s time for the Moldovan auditions …

Teleradio Moldova

Moldovan broadcaster TRM has revealed the artists and songs invited to live auditions to be held on Saturday 28 January, and going by the name of Etapa Națională.

Sunstroke Project Yummy MommyThe auditions are always a source of entertainment, often featuring some of the most bizarre acts and songs. It’s a day that always cheers up a gloomy January. Highlights almost always included the terminally untalented Sasha Bognibov – back as always for yet another shot with yet another dodgy sounding song title.

Last year, full-time piss taker Misscatylove submitted a minute or so of white noise called ‘Intro’, earning online love. This year’s hopeful song ‘Outro’ has not made the shortlist. There is however yet another song from Sunstroke Project, indicating we already know who’ll be getting non-refundable Easyjet tickets to Liverpool.

The long shortlist

Formația Vele – “Jocul neamului moldovenesc”

Corina Ivanov – “When Love’s Real”

NÖRDIKA – “Skueeze Paradise”

Nihilist & Lisa Nicky – “Final Destination”

You should be careful what you say about Sasha Bognibov, as Roy Delaney , of this parish, likes him quite a lot.
Unless I am misunderstanding what he writes on his blog about him😂🤣

If I remember correctly, it’s his first time in the Moldovan live auditions.
TBH his previous attempts were not as bad as you say they were.
A question of different taste.
