More and more countries are confirming their intention to participate in next year’s competition. Another country to confirm it will be present in Liverpool is Moldova. TRM’s participation was revealed as the official list of participating countries for Eurovision 2023 was announced. This will be Moldova’s 18th participation in the competition.
Moldova’s selection method for Liverpool is still to be confirmed
Alongside the confirmation that they will be participating in Liverpool, TRM is yet to reveal how they will be selecting their next Eurovision representative. Since their debut in the competition, they have used various selection methods in selecting their entry, with their last two entries being selected internally.
Moldova’s Eurovision Journey
Moldova is relatively new to the Eurovision Song Contest, joining in 2005. Their debut entry, Zdob si Zdub, finished in 6th place, which had remained their highest scoring entry up until 2017. This was thanks to the Sunstroke Project performing ‘Hey Mamma’, finishing in 3rd place. At the close of voting, Moldova received 374 points.
In 2022, Zdob si Zdub came back to the Eurovision stage with the Advahov Brothers and represented Moldova at the Contest in Turin. Performing their song “Trenuletul”, Moldova qualified for the final and finished in 7th place. Following the jury and televote points, Moldova had received 253 points.
