More Moldova
Ever since everybody's favorite grandma Boonika stormed onto the Eurovision stage in 2005, Moldova have only missed the final once. But until now they never repeated the success of that brilliant first entry.
Pasha Parfeny (2012) and his protegée Aliona Moon (2013) both made it to 11th place.
Zdob Şi Zdub weren't So Lucky to better their 2005 result in 2011. Sunstroke Project ft. Olia Tira (2010) gave us the immortal Epic Sax Guy but only got to no. 22.
In 2009 Hora Din Moldova by Nelly Ciobanu ended 14th.
