There has been much talk of Romania recently as much loved participant Mihai Traistariu pulled out of the national final unexpectedly. Whilst the broadcaster has introduced two wildcards: Bella Santiago with, "Army Of Love" (semi final one), and Linda Teodosiu with "Renegades" (Semi final two). Currently Bella is doing very well with polls, and the recent revamp of her song, has certainly swayed many fans into backing her. Details can be found here
