    Song is beautiful, but too intelligent and complicated for European understanding. They like something like la-la-la-bla-bla-bla and that is all...
    Moldova, good choise... But I remember incendiary song. Ra! ... "Lute-i hora din Moldova. report to the moderator

    It's a good voice, the song is so not sticky, though, changes every 20 second. I don't like it report to the moderator

    Shame on you Moldova. How you can choose this song for Eurovision Contest. I'm moldavian which lives in Denmark and I'm ashamed that "Wild Soul" will be presented at eurovision. I choose Curly - Your Recovery? Undskyld, til mig indlæg.

    Hi Neil D

    Not sure what happened this year?

    In their 9 year history, they have been in the Top 14 SIX times only failing to qualify once. Pasha and his 5 ladies in 2012 has to be one of my favourite entries EVER with "Lăutar", such an original entry and such quirky and original choreography. They set a bench mark and came 11th.

    Then compare that to this year's entry. report to the moderator

    There is a mistake in the comments. She didnt receive 12 points from the TV viewers, Boris did. But the jury gave Boris 8 points so Cristine could go to the contest report to the moderator

    It's a lousy song indeed :(( I don't think she'll make it to the final! Boris' song was no better! The third place Lucia's was to my mind the best! Very bad that she didn't get through :((( Good luck Moldova but I'm not on your side this year... report to the moderator

    moldova is one of my favorite countries in esc and last year entry was my favorite one, but this year i think they screwed up with lot of help maybe moldova reach the final in a very tough 1st semi report to the moderator

    I'm afraid I have to agree with our esteemed friend Eugene on this one. When giving a review I always try to be balanced and focus on the positive, but I'm struggling here. I have always held Moldova in very high regard. I loved last year's entry and went into paroxysms of pleasure over Pasha. I adored Granny on the drums and wanted to adopt her. However, this just leaves me cold. Sorry Cristina. report to the moderator
