According to an official statement from TRM (Moldovan broadcaster), we will have some changes in the plans for the Eurovision 2022 selection process.
The initial plan was to hold live auditions tomorrow (29th of January 2022) that will reduce the list of potential songs. The qualifiers should have competed in a televised show that was scheduled for the 5th of March 2022.
However, here is the change: The live auditions will be used as the selection itself.
The professional jury will watch the live auditions tomorrow and will rank the performances.
The highest-ranked audition will mark Moldovan‘s representation of Eurovision 2022.
The TRM statement was:
The Organizing Committee notes the impossibility of organizing and broadcasting the final stages televised in connection with the epidemiological situation in the country and the significant increase, lately, in the number of COVID-19 infections.
This means that due to the increase in Covid-19 cases in the country, the televised show is canceled!
The auditions will be held tomorrow, starting at 13:00 CET and ending at 16:00 CET.
