Chisinau, Moldova -

The second semi-final of the Moldovan national selection was held tonight, with another seven qualifiers completing the line-up of the national final, to be held on Saturday. The decision was taken jointly by the TV public and an expert jury.

    Zero points for such nice handmade sounds? Niente? This is strange, this is peculiar. I'm disappointed once more. "Just Smile" was my favourite song of semi two. But they made a major mistake at the performance (resp. in the arrangement) - they left out the second voice which makes the studio version sort of special. So particularly in the chorus it sounded much less appealing. Apart from that it's a fresh, straight-on and compact tune, having the naive charm of a garage combo achievement and the cachet of authenticity.

    So, since the best act Margarita Ciorici is out, I keep my fingers crossed for Vitalie Negruta. Some others might do well in Malmö, but "You'll be mine" is the only song I would really look forward to. report to the moderator
