ROMANIA – TVR will discuss the Eurovision failure on TVR1 on July 5th in a special show hosted by former HOD, Marina Almăşan. It is not the first time such a televised debate takes place on TVR. The show will discuss/examine the failure of Romania in Eurovision plus:
- Why don’t Romania’s great voices participate in Eurovision?
- Why has the interest of Romanians towards Eurovision decreased so much?
- What are the solutions to rectify the situation?
Former Eurostars Paula & Ovi and The Humans will attend the show…
Marina Almăşan stated:
I was, at that time, the head of the Romanian delegation, and my team was at the buttons, in all this preparatory work – internal and external. Of course, without the two extraordinary voices, without the 10th-grade song, without the charisma of the two talented artists, we wouldn’t have got here. There were, therefore, years in which the Romanian Television (through other valuable colleagues of mine) made a very good image, in the European competition. Then, all of a sudden, … the movie broke. And the last years have brought enough frown and sorrow on the faces of the Romanians attentive to Eurovision. On Monday, July 5, TVR wants to finally put its finger on the wound: to find the weak points (but also the strong ones, because they also exist) of our participation in Eurovision, to propose solutions to remedy the situation and wash away shame. I will moderate a heated debate, on the evening of July 5, on TVR 1, with chosen and skilled guests and even if it comes out with sparks, it is important that things go smoothly. And at the next edition, Romania should reach the top 10! … this if, after the discussions, it will not turn out that, maybe, it is healthier to stay on the bar for a year or two … The dialogue will be LIVE, which what for me – a live man – will mean a return to the good times! I thank Romanian Television for entrusting this event to my team and … I hope we will not disappoint!
