Moldova: Tonight the Etapa Națională 2023 Final!
The process to select Moldova‘s representative for Eurovision 2023 continues today. The Eastern European country will use a national final for the first time in three years to select the artist to compete in Liverpool..
Live auditions began on January 28th at noon, in the public television studios. The auditions will be broadcast live on the Moldova 2 channel and on its website, as well as on www.eurovision.md.
The score were given exclusively by a jury. The composition of the jury was known only on the day of the hearing. The panel will consist of an odd number of judges (three or five) and will be different from the national final panel.
On January 28, Moldova 1 channel hosted a special show for the live auditions and announce the finalists who will take part in the national final. According to the rules, the ten artists with the highest scores in the live auditions will compete in the national final.
The final result will be determined 50% by the jury and 50% by the audience. Jury members will vote via ballots containing the song titles and artist names. So they will share two sets of scores from 1 to 12 just like in Eurovision. The song with the highest overall score will be declared the winner of the national final.
