Romania will select its 2022 artist through a national final – Selecția Naționala. Selecția Naționala has been used almost all the times that the country has participated.
One of the finalists of the national selection, Cream, Minodora și Diana, were unknown if they will be eligible to compete after some allegations about plagiarism with a previous released song came into surface. Their song “România mea” seemed to have a lot of similarities with a song with the same name that came out in 2004. The national final entry was produced by the singer of the 2004 entry Costi Ioniță.
TVR, the Romanian broadcaster, has released a statement explaining that after examination of the situation, the entry will remain to the final of the show!
The final will take place on March 5th.
