Eurovision 2022: Romania’s First Rehearsal!

The next country to have a go on their first rehearsal for Eurovision Song Contest 2022 is Romania and WRS with the song “Llámame”!

Who is WRS?

The beatmaker from Buzău began his artistic career as a dancer; performing on stage with Romanian pop icons such as Inna, and being hired as a house dancer for both Romania’s Got Talent and The Voice of Romania.

In 2015 he joined boyband SHOT for a short while, before moving to London to hone his craft as a songwriter and solo act.

In total, the Romanian recording artist has released 10 singles, 3 collaborations and is currently working on his forthcoming debut EP, Mandala.

The rehearsal

WRS is in wet look sparkly trousers and a red frilly shirt that comes off at the end to reveal a silver sequinned vest – our first outfit reveal of the competition! His male backing dancers are wearing tops so short it looks like they’re each wearing a Speedo as a t-shirt.



This ticks lots of Eurovision boxes – great dancing, fabulous costumes, lots of different musical influences and a proper party tune. Incidentally Llámame means ‘call me’ in Spanish. Call us, WRS – there’s a Euroclub dance floor in Turin with our name on it.
