Anna Odobescu is the Eurovision act for Moldova

O Melodie Pentru Europa, the national final for Moldova has selected Anna Odobescu as their act for the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv. Her song is called “Stay”.

The Grand Final took place in Chișinău this evening, and the result was decided by a 50/50 split between the jury and the public. The show was plagued by a number of technical issues, and that even resulted in one act having to perform twice.
