Romania: TVR will NOT participate in Eurovision 2024!

The board of directors of the Romanian national broadcaster (TVR) did not approve Romania’s participation in Eurovision 2024.

Financial constraints and the desire to represent Romania at a performing level are the reasons why the Board of Directors (CA) decided that TVR will not participate in this year’s edition of the Eurovision Song Contest which will be held the next May in Malmo.

The decision was taken in today’s meeting, January 25, with 5 votes “yes”, 4 “abstentions” and 4 “against”.

Also today, the Board of Directors approved the budget for 2024, which does not contain enough funds to guarantee Romania’s participation according to the increasingly high standards of the international competition.

Although it has benefited from an extension of the deadline for registering to the 2024 contest by EBU, TVR is forced to postpone the participation in the Eurovision Song Contest for a future edition, maybe next year.

This means that the 68th Eurovision Song Contest will be held with 37 countries, as originally announced and if Iceland does not withdraw its participation because of Israel.

Romania: Mihai Trăistariu has a song for Eurovision 2024!

Regardless the uncertainty regarding Romania’s participation in Eurovision 2024 and the tight deadline for TVR’s decision, the Eurovision legend Mihai Trăistariu is now more than ready to return to the Eurovision stage for one more time.

Having previously participated in 2006, Trăistariu considers his Eurovision participation as a life-changing experience and is willing to participate again at all costs. He is just waiting to see what TVR’s decision will be or he would consider to submit a song in other countries’ preselections. Nevertheless, he states that he would prefer to represent his home-country, Romania.

In 2006 I wanted to win, I didn’t succeed, and since then I made it my ambition to keep trying at Eurovision. This year I have an act, but it is not yet known if Romania will participate, it is under discussion, I am actually watching, nothing has been announced. At least if they would announce that it is not happening, that I have the possibility to register in other countries. I have the song and I’m waiting to see what decision our television makes. The only alternative is to register now in another country, but I want to be in Romania, to represent my country, for the Romanians to cry when I bring the big prize home. There are still a few countries that allow foreigners to register, but they close the pre-selections.

Hence, Trăistariu already has a song in his hands coming from Finland and it is of vital importance to submit it now, as:

A song from 10 years ago, if you want to play it on the radio now, no one will pick it up, because it’s not updated. It’s the same with Eurovision, everything has changed, the graphics, the shows, so you have to come up with something new. I wouldn’t be able to keep this year’s song for the next 2-3 years, it might not be suitable anymore. This song I have is from Finland and it’s a modern-slow piece and it works for me. I also had rhythmic songs, even slower ones, I receive many songs as a gift for Eurovision and I don’t really like them, I have to choose with my head. Last year I couldn’t find it and I didn’t submit again. This year we announced that we found the song and we are no longer doing Eurovision.

Moreover, he also expressed his opinion on Romania’s bad results in the competition for the past years:

I don’t know if what I say is valid, but I believe in it, I believe that an experienced artist knows how to face such an international competition differently. It is the biggest international music competition, we have no other bigger. It’s a pity that Romania backs down due to a failure, it has also happened in football, did Romania then withdraw from the Championships? Not. And here it is the same, let’s not be demoralized. Being young, they don’t have experience, they look at everything as a joke, they don’t take everything seriously, they don’t realize that Romania is competing, Romania is written on the screen, then the name of the artist. Eurovision is the success of my life, 2006 changed my life completely.

It appears that the lack of professionalism and experience is what has led to Romania’s streak of bad results and non-qualifications, according to Mihai Trăistariu.

Romania at Eurovision 2024

The deadline for TVR to decide whether the country will participate in Malmö or not is due to January 25. The Eurovision 2024 participation will be discussed by the Board of Directors and then a decision will be made.

In case Romania finally participates at Eurovision 2024, it might not be Mihai Trăistariu’s year either, as according to our exclusive information, two female artists are in race for Malmö. Two female artists have been approached by TVR to have one of them fly the Romanian flag in Malmö. They also have their songs ready and have been preparing for this project for a long time.

Mihai Trăistariu represented his country in the contest back in 2006, with the song “Tornero”, which finished in fourth place and became a massive European hit. He has also tried again to represent Romania in multiple occasions, in 2016,2017,2018 and 2019 without success.

Romania: The final deadline for Eurovision 2024 decision, is on January 25!

The list of countries participating in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, which will take place in Malmö, Sweden, in May of next year, was made public last month. Romania is not included on the list. With a total budget of EUR 80 million for 2024, Romanian public television faces financial challenges that make its participation unclear.

As we informed you a few days ago, TVR, the public broadcaster, had a deadline until January 22, in order to confirm their decision. However, earlier today, the Romanian website, Fanatik, states that some final extra time was given, and the decision will be taken after a meeting of the council of the channel, until the 25th of January.

Dan Turturică, the General Director of TVR, stated onn this matter:

“We will have a board meeting on January 25. We have a delay from the EBU to give a final answer by the end of this month. We will have the board meeting where we will have a vote. This is not a decision for me to make alone. It’s a decision that has to be put to a vote because it involves some great costs and will be taken by open vote by all 13 members of the Board of Directors. On the 25th, the decision will be put to the vote and after that we will announce the results.”

It is calculated that Romania pays around 180 thousand euros for its participation fee, then adding the cost of the staging and the accomodation of the delegation in Sweden, that add tens of thousand of euros in the budget.

As you exclusively read in Eurovisionfun, in case Romania indeed competes in Eurovision 2024, there two female names, that are in talks with TVR, for a possible internal selection in this year’s contest.

Romania: Two female artists ready to represent the country in Malmö | EXCLUSIVE

With time running out for Romania’s public television (TVR) to decide whether or not to participate in Eurovision 2024, according to our exclusive information two female artists are set to represent their country in the contest.

Decision time for TVR

Romania may not have been included in the EBU’s list of 37 countries that will compete in the 68th Eurovision Song Contest, however there was a footnote that it would have the possibility, if the basic financial data of the public broadcaster allows it, to confirm its participation in the future.

According to reports of the previous days, this deadline expires on January 22nd, so TVR must now make its final decision, whether it will be present in May in Malmö or absent from the competition for the second time after 2016.

Two female artists ready for Malmö

However, according to our exclusive information, during this time, TVR has not been idle. In the event that the decision of the TVR administration is positive and Romania confirms its participation in Eurovision 2024 as the 38th country, it has already found the artist who will undertake to carry out this difficult task.

Two female artists have been approached by TVR to have one of them fly the Romanian flag in Malmö. They have songs ready and have been preparing for this project for a long time.

In fact, both are not unknown to the Eurovision world, but also to the eurofans in Romania, since both attempted to represent Romania in the recent and relatively recent past, participating in the country’s national final.

What they are both waiting for is the final choice of TVR as to which of the two will be the chosen one, since of course there is first the positive decision of the management of the public television, for its participation in Eurovision 2024.

With time running out, very soon we will have developments, hoping that everyone will be positive and that we will see Romania, which has given us so many successes in the competition, participate in the Eurovision competition in 2024!

Romania is not included on the list. With a total budget of EUR 80 million for 2024, Romanian public television faces financial challenges that make its participation unclear.

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) has given Romania’s national broadcaster until January 22 to consider all the options and decide whether or not the country should take part, according to Euroalfa.

Specifically, representatives of the Romanian public broadcaster, TVR, stated:

The final decision on Romania’s participation in Eurovision 2024 has not been taken. We are in contact with the organisers (the EBU), all possibilities are still open.

Romania was represented last year by Theodor Andrei, who performed the song “D.G.T. (Off and On)” in the Second Semi-Final, failing to qualify for the Final.
