The final

Yes, Eurovision is about politics and geopolitics.
Yes, Eurovision is a show - business that requires a great financial investment.
Yes, Eurovision is bubble-gum-pop.
Yes, the cameramen and the directors of the show were not able or didn’t what to point out the spectacular elements and the surprises of our show.

BUT:
Zdob si Zdub are returning home with their heads up.
Zdob si Zdub amazed Europe.
Zdob si Zdub made for their country almost the impossible:
with a miserable budget, incomparable with the one of other artists,
with a totally limited time for preparation,
without a sufficient promotion,
without the real support promised by the officials,
Zdob si Zdub managed to qualify the poorest and unknown country from Europe – Moldova, on a dignified place – 6th!
This way, Moldova will directly participate in the finals of Eurovision 2006 in Greece.

Thank you Romania, Ukraine, Lithuania, Portugal, Russia and other countries for your support!

Zdob si Zdub would’ve given fraternally 12 points to Romania! Romania, Zdub si Zdub apologizes on behalf of Moldova for its faithlessness. We think that reality is different and actually Moldavians voted for Romania!

Thanks to Grandma-Boonika!
Thanks to Kiev for a perfect organization and thanks to hospitable Ukrainians! Romania and Ukraine – the coolest neighbors!
Let's keep on rocking!!
