Moldova: Listen “Prison”‘s final version | Watch the video clip!

Only six hours left until Moldova’s live audition and the national selection of the song that will represent the country at the 65th Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

The final version of Natalia Gordienko’s song Prison was released today, the video clip of which was made in Greece. The song is signed by Dimitris Kontopoulos and Philip Kirkorkov, while lyrics by Sharon Vaughn.

“Dream Team” says about their participation in the moldovan selection with Prison and Natalia Gordienko:

Natalia Gordienko is one of the most popular artists in Moldova and the only singer that has managed to win the two most important festivals in Eastern Europe : Slavianski bazaar and New Wave.

In 2008, when she was just 21 years old, she received the prestigious “National artist” award for her contribution in promoting Moldova around the world. At the National selection Natalia Gordienko is participating with the song “Prison”, a powerful Avant Garde ballad with strong ethnic elements.

The song describes the extreme emotions in a passionate relationship. The track is composed by the “dream team” Phillip Kirkorov and Dimitris Kontopoulos while the lyrics are written by Sharon Vaughn. In case Natalia Gordienko wins the national selection, Fokas Evangelinos is going to be the creative director of her stage presentation in Eurovision.

The video clip of the song was shot in Athens and shows the way Natalia is trying to escape from the “prison” of her passionate lover.

Dream Team for Prison.

Prison is a very different type of music from what Natalia Gordienko has done so far. She says it was a dream of a lifetime to be back on the Eurovision stage, having already participated in 2006 as a duo at that time, of course, but had not attempted so far, as she wanted to be with the ‘Dream Team’.

This will be the second time the ‘Dream Team’ will represent Moldova, if Natalia wins in tomorrow’s Moldova’s national selection. In 2018, the Greek- Russian team was behind DoReDoS, where the song My Lucky Day put the country in the 10th place with 209 points.

Moldova: Direct assignment for Rotterdam-An inactive method since 2007

The news is already on Twitter and we can confirm it here at EurovisionFun based on our exclusive information. Moldovan Public Television will directly select its participation in Eurovision 2020.

The first discussions have already begun and obviously the artist, but also the creator chosen with direct assignment and not through a national final (O melodie pentru Europa), as Moldova has always chosen for the contest, are both widely recognised.The country uses this method constantly since 2007, when it selected its  representative internally for last time.

Any announcements, however, are not expected to be made soon. As for the rumors about the return of the DoReDos, it doesn’t seem to be the case.

In Tel Aviv the country was represented by Anna Odobescu with “Stay”, composed by Greek artist George Kalpakidis. Unfortunately, with the 85 points the song gathered failed to qualify for the second semifinal, finishing 12th.
