    As every comment and/or manifestation this is a subjective view, so just in case please keep in mind :)

    Checked all 6 finalists, but only 2 captured my attention and I add the first thoughts that arose when listening to them
    Ovidiu Anton - Run away with me --> Bryan Adams type of gruffly voice at the deeper parts
    Al Mike feat. Renee Santana - What Is Love --> powerful voice, but unremembering melody..

    The rest no comment..
    Go Romania! May the best one win! report to the moderator
