Theodor Andrei was selected to represent Romania at Eurovision 2023 after winning Selecția Națională 2023. He came second in the telephone vote and first in the online vote.
The song that Theodor will perform in Liverpool is called “D.G.T. (Off and on)“. It has been written by Mikail Jahed, Luca de Mezzo, Luca Udățeanu and Theodor himself. “D.G.T.” is a pun on the Romanian word “degete” meaning “fingers”.
Via a tweet from the BBC’s official Eurovision account, we learn that filming for the postcard that will appear before Theodor Andrei’s Eurovision 2023 performance has begun and is taking place in Bucharest.
The BBC has released behind-the-scenes footage of the Romanian postcard for Eurovision 2023. It’s filmed in Bucharest in front of the Ion Luca Caragiale National Theatre, and shows Andrei miming in front of the statue and having fun.
