Romania 2017 - Ilinca & Alex Florea - Yodel It!


As much as I love Romania in this contest, they've always been a bit serious - Cezar aside. Which is why this little gem is such a delight.

A contemporary pop tune with fantastic, epic, escalating chords, that's entirely about yodelling? Yes please! It's got some joyous rap builds, some cool and sassy lady singing, and then a whole loads of yodelling in the middle. It's the kind of thing that this contest has been lacking in the grumpy old 2010s, and I for one applaud it's doubtlessly ultimately fruitless efforts.

Can't wait to see them do it live, either!

****STOP PRESS****

Now with added live video - and it's flipping brilliant! Busting with charm and grace and loads and loads of fun! Oh come on Romania, do the right thing!
