TVR (the Romanian National Broadcaster) announced today a new format for Selectia Nationala 2018 – the show that selects Romania’s representative for Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon.

The show will include like last year a preselection – available online for the public, five semifinals in different cities from Romania and a final in Cluj-Napoca (Ilinca’s hometown).

Most probably the five cities hosting the semifinals will be Bucuresti, Targu Mures, Iasi, Timisoara and Craiova – cities where TVR has regional studios.

The preselection process will start in mid-November and the semifinals will take place in January and February.

“Eurovision unites Romania” will be the slogan of the next year Romanian selection.

Doina Gradea – General Director of TVR stated ” We wish to bring Eurovision shows close to our viewers from all corners of our country in a very special year for Romanians from everywhere – the Centenary of The Great Union ”
