Founded in 2017, The Humans is a Romanian band from Bucharest. The group consists of Cristina Caramarcu (vocalist), Alexandru Cismaru (guitarist), Alexandru Matei (keyboardist), and Adi Tetrade (drummer). Although they are a new band, they rose to fame after winning this year’s Selectia Nationala, the Romanian Eurovision selection show. Their song “Goodbye” was written by Cristina herself and was composed and produced by band members Alexandru Matei and Alin Neagoe.
Romania first participated in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1994, the country had tried to participate in 1993 but failed to get through the pre-qualifying round. At the 1994 contest Dan Bittman finished 21st in the final scoring 14 points, Romania didn’t make it through to another final until 1998. Romania’s best results in the contest are two third place finishes. In 2005 Luminita Anghel & Sistem finished 3rd scoring 158 points, while Paula Seling & Ovi finished 3rd in Oslo with the song “Playing with Fire”. Romania missed the 2016 contest due to TVR being removed from the EBU.
