Romania’s Eurovision pair Alex Florea & Ilinca Bancila leave for Kiev

Romania’s representatives for Eurovision 2017 – Alex Florea and Ilinca Bancila have left for Kiev on Monday, where the European Song contest is to take place.

The delegation’s head, Iuliana Marciuc said upon leaving for Ukraine’s capital that she hopes our artists will make it to the Top 5 after the 13 May finale.

Talking about the way Romania’s song “Yodel It!” is seen, Marciuc said “I’m glad we are in Top 10” adding that she hopes to a Top 5 place.

Iuliana Marciuc said that Tuesday is crucial for Romania’s competitors, because it is the first rehearsal day, “the moment when we are going to see what they thought together with the three artists who are accompanying us – the sound director Gabi Scirlet, the image director Sergiu Ardelean and the artistic director Aurel Badea – and we’ll try to reach a common denominator.”

The two artists asserted they have “no fear” as regards the competition. They told AGERPRES how their song’s international promotion mini-tour took place.

“Every time we were exiting the concert halls, everybody was singing ‘Yodel’,” Ilinca Bancila recalled.

“Hopefully this is what will happen in Kiev, too and the ones at home will sing ‘Yodel It!’,” completed Alex Florea. Moreover, Ilinca added that after arriving in Kiev, she will post a short film on her YouTube account every day.

The two artists also talked about the “Yodel It!” video made in the western city of Cluj-Napoca.

“I’m from Cluj and it was like somehow I prided myself to exhibit Cluj-Napoca to Europe a little and the idea belongs to Dan Petcan,” said Ilinca, adding that they worked three ceaseless days for the video.

Eurovision “is not only music, it’s art – show, costumes, energy, everything is art,” said Ilinca.

Romania’s representatives will sing in the second Eurovision semifinal, on 11 May. The grand finale is due 13 May.
