The Audions will be broadcast on the official TVR website. You can still send your entry for the contest today as the deadline for applications is January 31, 2019.
It has been revealed to ESCBEAT that behind one of the songs submitted for the contest is once again Greek songwriter Nikos Sofis. Sofis is also behind Vera Turcanu’s entry for this year Moldovian national final “cold” and worked with many Eurovision artists in the past like Ovidiu Anton, Omar Naber, Samra, Litesound, and Alen Hit. This time he teamed up with Sebastian Ekstrand and Georgios Kalpakidis which is also previously worked with known artists as Tika Patsatsia, Samanta Tina, Vaidas Baumila, Vilija Mataciunaite, Jan Johansen, Silva Hakobyan
The team wrote together the power ballad “Stop Breathing” for Angelika Pushnova that returns for the 2nd time to the national contest. In 2017 she came 9th singing the Europop hit “We Should Be Together”. she also 2018 tried to participate in 2018 with “Fighting For Love” but didn’t qualify for the final.
“Stop Breathing” is a song about a woman who despite having lost support and the love from that special person, she doesn’t give up and tries to win him back. The memories of the special moments both of them shared and lived through never left her, which makes it near to impossible for her to get past him.
