This post is titled: Romania is a mess
So, following the downright atrocious result of Romania's Selecția Națională last year, which saw televoters deliberately vote against Jukebox and Bella Santiago excellent and guaranteed qualifier "Auzi Cum Bate" (I know, I know) and end up with The Humans' "Goodbye", which remains one of my least favourite entries of all time. As we all know, the evil was defeated and this rightfully flopped in Lisbon, becoming the countries first ever non-qualifier. Ha, suffer!
As a result, the broadcaster has decided to strip back the power of the televote and make their say over the final result 10% to the international jury's 90%, so they can ensure that no more buffoonery goes down...
TODAY, they revealed who would be on said international jury:
- Tali Eshkoli
- Emmelie De Forest
- Deban Aderemi
- Wiliam Lee Adams
- Serban Cazan
- Alex Calancea
As you can see, TWO out of the SIX international jurors are in fact from Wiwibloggs, who have repeatedly shown an inability to show impartiality (and are from the same country, which is wack in itself, but I digress). This means that Wiwibloggs have around 30% of the ENTIRE vote that will decide the Romanian entrant for Eurovision...three-times more than the entirety of the Romanian public.
BUT, it means that the chances of us getting Army of Love has increased considerably
