Arsenie Todiraș (sometimes spelt Toderaș; Moldovan Cyrillic: Арсение Тодираш) (born 22 July 1983) is a Moldovan singer, best known for representing Moldova in the Eurovision Song Contest 2006. He grew up in Moldova with his mother, father and younger sister. He is now a Moldovan singer who was once the youngest member of former boyband O-Zone. He now pursues a solo career in Russia and Romania, under the mononym Arsenie or at times the stage name Arsenium.

Arsenie represented Moldova at the Eurovision Song Contest 2006 with the song "Loca" (Crazy in Spanish) with Natalia Gordienko featuring Connect-R, finishing in 20th place with 22 points.

He took part in the Dansez pentru tine dance contest, the Romanian version of Dancing with the Stars, and took the second place, while the first was given to the Romanian singer Andra.

His first album, The 33rd Element, was released in Romania in the summer of 2006, releases in other countries (such as Russia, Spain, Ukraine, Poland etc.) are to follow.

In 2008 he released the single "Rumadai", reaching the Top 100 in Germany and Austria. With the same single he represented Romania at the Viña del Mar Festival 2014 in Chile,[1] winning the Best Performer place and therefore the Silver Seagull (the best prize granted in the International Contest).[2]
