Romania was scheduled to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 in Rotterdam, Netherlands before its cancellation due to the pandemic of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in China and its spread to other countries. Romania’s artist, Roxen, was internally selected and announced on 11 February 2020. Their competing entry, “Alcohol You“, was chosen during the national selection competition Selecția Națională 2020 on 1 March. Prior to the 2020 contest, Romania had participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 20 times since its first entry in 1994. Its highest placing had been third place, which the nation achieved in 2005 and 2010. In 2019, they failed to qualify for the contest’s final for the second consecutive year. Prior to the scheduled Eurovision Song Contest 2020, “Alcohol You” was promoted by a lyric video, while Roxen appeared on several native talk shows and radio stations.

. . . Romania in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 . . .

Prior to the 2020 contest, Romania had participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 20 times since its first entry in 1994. Its highest placing in the contest, to this point, had been third place, which the nation achieved on two occasions: in 2005 with the song “Let Me Try” performed by Luminița Anghel and Sistem, and in 2010 with “Playing with Fire” by Paula Seling and Ovi. In 2019, Romania failed to qualify to the final, placing 13th in the second semi-final with Ester Peony‘s “On a Sunday“. This marked the second consecutive time that the nation failed to qualify to the final of the Eurovision Song Contest since the introduction of semi-finals in 2004, after 2018.[1] In September 2019, Romanian Television (TVR) confirmed Romania’s participation in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020.[2] As of December 2019, the broadcaster was discussing the method to select a representing entry,[3] which evolved as the subject of online controversy since precise information surrounding Romania’s Eurovision participation had been given that time in preceding years. In addition, the mayors of Baia Mare and Buzău claimed the cities were potential hosts of a national final that was yet to be confirmed by TVR.[4]
