20-year-old Roxen will represent Romania at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. She became the country’s representative via a songwriting camp that public broadcaster TVR organized in collaboration with the music label Global Records.
At a young age, Roxen knew that music meant the world to her. She started singing at the age of 7 and won several musical competitions throughout the years. Right now, Roxen is the 3rd most-played artist on Romanian radio and has 2 songs in the radio charts: You Don’t Love Me (which has 8 million views on YouTube) and Ce-ti Canta Dragostea (9 million views and the most-Shazamed Romanian song).
On 1 March, Roxen will perform 5 songs in Romania’s national final on TV. During the show, the Romanian public will be able to vote for their favourite song. Both a jury and the public will pick their favourite song, in which both will have an equal 50% share in the final outcome. In case of a tie, the public vote will prevail.
The other two remaining internal candidates in Romania were young talents Diana V and Cezar.
