Romania’s Eurovision 2008 Entry

You know, I didn’t mind “Pe o margine de lume” when it started. Then Nico showed up and oversang the hell out of this song. I was digging Vlad Miriţă’s performance, but I found Nico really shrill. Despite her histrionics, however, this is actually a subdued and classy performance. The staging of “Pe o margine de lume” is similar to Isis Gee and Poland’s entry, with a pianist and three back-up performers (violinists in Poland and singers here). I don’t know if it’s particularly memorable, but I bet it could do well if it gets good placement in the semi-final line-up.
