Elena Gheorghe

Elena Gheorghe is a singer hailing from Romania. She has been part of several Romanian groups, including Mandinga, and has released 3 albums throughout her solo career as far as I have found: Vocea Ta, Lilicea Vreariei, and Te Ador; though I have not been able to get a hold of these albums as of yet. But the important thing to share about Elena Gheorghe is her 2009 entry to the Eurovision Song Contest: The Balkan Girls. The song only came in 19th place during the finals with 40 points, but personally it is my – and several of my friends’ – favourite song from the year. It’s an upbeat, dance-inspiring, and fun song; even just a little dirty – those Balkan Girls know how to party. Another of the better Eurovision videos in my opinion as well:
