There will be 200 projectors and 150 square metres of LED screens on the stage. All these elements will create, during the two hours of the show, an explosion of lights and graphics.

The latest song belonging to Florin Ristei (FreeStay) and a Queen Tribute performed by Dan Helciug are the surprises within this Eurovision semi-final in Craiova.

Florin Ristei and his band– FreeStay –, the most successful project of „Live Band” in Romania, will perform several songs and also their latest single, – „If I am a wolf”. The band will make a unique show with one of the greatest songs in the history of Eurovision– „Fairytale”, a song which has transformed the Norwegian Alexander Rybak in the great winner of the international final in 2009. The songs which are most loved by the public will not miss from his performance: „Let it go”, „It must have been you” or „There is nothing between us anymore”.

The second performance of the semi-final in Craiova is a tribute which Dan Helciug will dedicate to the legendary band Queen. He will have a special guest – the young opera singer Mihaela Alexa. „<My Queen Tribute> is my musical tribute brought to the British band. I have dreamt about this since I was in my teens. I am a great fan of Freddie Mercury”, says Dan Helciug about the show he has prepared.

The viewers will find out on February 4th live on TVR 1, TVR HD, TVRi, TVR Moldova and TVR+, starting from 21.00 hrs, the three finalists of semi-final from Craiova.
