The show also featured performances from Netta, Emmelie de Forest and Inis Neziri, winner of Golden Stag, an international singing competition in Romania.
The winner was decided by a combination of jury and televoting, with an international jury consisting of artist and producer Alex Calancea, music producer Șerban Cazan, TV executive Tali Eshkoli, Emmelie de Forest and, of course, William Lee Adams and Deban Aderemi from wiwibloggs!
After a combination of their scores with the Romanian televote, it became clear – Ester Peony would be going to Tel Aviv to represent Romania!
