"Llámame" (Spanish: [ˈʎamame]; transl. "Call me") is a 2022 song by Romanian singer Wrs, stage name of Andrei Ionuț Ursu. The song represented Romania in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin, Italy after winning Selecția Națională 2022, Romania's national final.[1]

Eurovision Song Contest

Selecția Națională 2022

TVR opened a submission period for artists and composers to submit their entries between 26 November 2021 and 19 December 2021. The broadcaster received 94 submissions within the submission deadline.[2] A jury panel consisting of Alexandra Ungureanu (singer), Ozana Barabancea (opera singer, actress), Randi (singer, producer), Cristian Faur (composer, producer) and Adrian Romcescu (composer, conductor) reviewed the received submissions on 21 and 22 December 2021, with each juror on the committee rating each song between 1 (lowest) and 10 (highest) based on criteria such as the melodic harmony and structure of the song, the orchestral arrangement, originality and stylistic diversity of the composition and sound and voice quality.[3] After the combination of the jury votes, the top 45 entries that scored the highest, one per artist that entered with more than one song, were selected for the national final. The competing entries were announced on 23 December 2021.[4][5]

Forty-six songs competed in the first semi-final and twenty qualified to the second semi-final. A jury panel first selected fifteen songs to advance, and a public online vote which took place on the Eurovision Romania Facebook page on 9 and 10 February 2022 then selected an additional five qualifiers from the remaining thirty entries.[6] "Llámame" qualified with the jury, while also only receiving 842 votes with the public, in 21st.

The second semi-final took place on 12 February 2022 at the TVR studios in Bucharest, hosted by Anca Mazilu and Bogdan Stănescu with Ilinca hosting segments from the green room.[7] Twenty songs competed, with the jury panel selecting ten of them to qualify to the final.[8][9] "Llámame" was selected as one of the ten finalists.

The final would take place on 5 March 2022. "Llámame" was determined the winner by the combination of the votes from the jury panel and public televoting. Each member of the jury voted by assigning scores from 1–8, 10 and 12 points to their preferred songs, with the juries awarding 290 points in total. The viewer vote was assigned by dividing the votes received by each song by the number of votes of the song that gained the most viewer votes. This number was then multiplied by 12 and rounded to two decimal places. For example, if song A received the most viewer votes and song B received 10% of song A's votes, then song A would be awarded 12 televoting points and song B would be awarded 1.2 televoting points.[10]

At Eurovision

According to Eurovision rules, all nations with the exceptions of the host country and the "Big Five" (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) are required to qualify from one of two semi-finals in order to compete for the final; the top ten countries from each semi-final progress to the final. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) split up the competing countries into six different pots based on voting patterns from previous contests, with countries with favourable voting histories put into the same pot. On 25 January 2022, an allocation draw was held which placed each country into one of the two semi-finals, as well as which half of the show they would perform in. Romania was placed into the second semi-final, held on 12 May 2022, and performed in the second half of the show, 13th out of 18 countries. He qualified for the final, which was held on 14 May, being announced as the 9th qualifier in the second semi-final. He sang second in the final.[11][12]
