Romania loves a bit of drama on stage and Ovidia Anton’s anthemic 80's style rock ballad is going to deliver it in spades come Semi Final 2.
"Moment of Silence" is an unashamed rip of any number of Meatloaf or Jim Steinman power rock songs of the late 80’s and early 90’s and with (presumed) over- the-top staging, this is one 3 minute stint on stage guaranteed to set social media on fire.
Let’s hope that Ovidia’s slightly dodgy high register lasts the week and he can belt out his homage to 80’s rock as only a rock ‘n’ roll Romanian can.
