The song “Liubi, Liubi, I Love You” by Locomondo was chosen on Saturday to represent Romania in this year’s edition of the European song contest Eurovision, due to take place in Helsinki onn May 12.

Locomondo received the best votes of both the jury (50%) and of TV viewers (50%) in the national preliminaries for Eurovision, which were marred by multiple scandals related to the value and originality of the songs.

Locomondo is thus entitled to follow the footsteps of Romania’s popular representatives to Eurovision over the past two years - Luminita Anghel&Sistem in 2005 and Mihai Traistariu in 2006.
