Romania is the "-ia" country that you always think are due a win at Eurovision!  They always qualify for the final, and have troubled the upper echelons of the scoreboard on several occasions.  So are they going to pull it off this year?

Well, no, not really.  I mean they are sure to qualify from their semi final, but to me the song is a bit too much like a bland Westlife album track from 2002.  Surely Eurovision is a bit more up to date than that? ;)  The song is  "De la Capat/All Over Again" by the group Voltaj, and you can watch the video here:

So what have the panel got to say about Romania?  Let find out!:

Asta Bjornsdottir:  "Did he actually sing in english at some point?? Hmmm, didn‘t realise that until second or third listen. But I like this, it is ok, let‘s see if the staging will bring the wow."

Hasse Skoldebjer: "I like it, wish it was in Romanian though. 6/10."

Annemieke Kelleter: "Romania, love the melody and the atmosphere of this song. Would have preferred it if they had kept it in Romanian completely as somehow that seems to suit the song better, but still I like it a lot!"

Adam and Charlotte Lane: "One of my favourites so far - really, really like it. Good vocal performance, simple but pretty melody, nice arrangement, good message. I hope this gets into the top 5. 6.5/10."

So it's pretty much a thumbs up from the panel, but what do YOU think? Leave us a comment and let us know! :)
