Interested artists and composers had until 17 January 2020 to submit their entries to the Moldovan broadcaster. On 21 January 2020, it was announced that 36 entries were submitted.

At the same time, it was announced that the organisers had also included Pelageya Stefoglo with the song "Empathy" into the list of competing entries.

On 1 February 2020, all of the submitted entries were performed live in front of a jury, which consisted of Anatol Chiriac, Gabriela Tocari, Andriano Marian, Paul Gamurari and Mihai Agafița. This was broadcast live on Moldova 2, as well as online via Teleradio-Moldovas Facebook and YouTube pages. Due to the quality of the acts presented at the live audition round, the jury recommended to the broadcaster to organise a national selection, consisting of 20 acts.

3. At Eurovision

According to Eurovision rules, all nations with the exceptions of the host country and the "Big 5" are required to qualify from one of two semi-finals in order to compete for the final; the top ten countries from each semi-final progress to the final. The European Broadcasting Union EBU split up the competing countries into six different pots based on voting patterns from previous contests, with countries with favourable voting histories put into the same pot. On 28 January 2020, a special allocation draw was held which placed each country into one of the two semi-finals, as well as which half of the show they would perform in. Moldova was placed into the second semi-final, to be held on 14 May 2020, and was scheduled to perform in the first half of the show. However, due to 2019-20 pandemic of Coronavirus, the contest was cancelled.
