Romania’s selection for the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest was held by TVR on 26 February. Mihai Trăistariu, with the song Tornerò, was chosen to represent the country. Tornerò is a dance song, not unlike last year's Eurovision entry Let Me Try. Both entries start off with a calm tone and pick up with several key changes for a climax at the end. The song is performed in both English and Italian. The song is written by Cristian Hriscu & Mihaela Deac and composed by Eduard Cârcota.

The song went on to come 4th in the Eurovision final with 172 points, giving Romania its second-best position ever in the contest.

Mihai Trăistariu was born in Piatra Neamţ and is a 28 year old singer currently residing in Constanţa. He has participated in many international festivals and competitions including five participations in the Romanian National Selection for Eurovision. He released his debut album in 2005 called "Altceva".
