The Romanian Final was held on March 1st at the TVR TV Studios in Bucharest, hosted by Kitty Cepraga & Leonard Miron. Before the final there were two semi-finals - click here for details: ROMANIAN SEMI-FINALS 2003 The winner was chosen by 50% televoting and 50% "expert" jury (a different jury from in the semi-finals). Nicola was favourite with both the jury and televoters.

Aurelian Temisan withdrew his song "Goodbye, hello, goodbye" as he didn't want to split his televotes between two songs. The song "Dominus" by Costi Ionita was disqualified due to similarities between it and the song "Ty prosti" by the Russian Group Hi-Fi.
