FYR Macedonia: Entry to be Revealed in January

On the 15th January, the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia will make their entry for the upcoming edition of the Eurovision Song Contest public, with vocals set to be provided by Tijana Dapcevic. The renowned female vocalist was internally selected by the broadcaster in hope of replicating the success achieved by Kaliopi and her entry Crno I Belo at the 2012 edition of the international competition. Despite the withdrawal of Croatia, a neighbouring country, it seems that there is a lot of interest behind the representation of the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia especially as more details are revealed to the media.

Tijana Dapcevic will be the lead vocalist of a yet unnamed entry which will definitely have an uptempo rhythm but the broadcaster is now also pleased to announce that there will be two backing vocalists, her sister who was a backing vocalist in 2004 and also represented her country at the competition in 2008 with Let Me Love You as well as Leontina Vukomanovic who was the woman behind the lyrics of Lane Moje, performed by Zeljko Joksimovic for Serbia and Montenegro. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news about the 2014 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark.

MRT, the broadcaster responsible for the participation of the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia within the Eurovision Song Contest has just revealed that Tijana Dapcevic is set to carry the flag at next years' international showcase taking place in Denmark. In Sweden, earlier this year, it was Esma and Lozano who did their best but nevertheless, their entry Pred Da Se Razdeni could only muster twenty-eight (28) points to finish in sixteenth place.

Tijana becomes the second artist selected for the 2014 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest following the revelation that Valentina Monetta will be representing San Marino for the third consecutive year following her near qualification miss in 2013 with the track Crisalide (Vola) composed by Ralph Siegel to the lyrics of Mauro Balestri. Tijana is a renowned female vocalist whose heritage is purely Balkan including a father from the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia and a Serbian mother from Bosnia and Herzegovina. 

She has already tried to go to the Eurovision Song Contest in the past, having tried to represent Serbia and Montenegro in 2006 with the song Greh which finished in eight place during the Evropesma with a total of twenty-seven (27) points. She was also the winner of the Sunčane Skale festival back in 2002 having performed the hit track Negativ which was then included in her sophomore record.

FYR Macedonia: Duet for Malmö Revealed

MRT chose their entry for the 2012 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest internally with Kaliopi reaching the final and achieving the second best result for the country since their initial participation in the show with the song Crno I Belo by virtue of finishing in thirteenth place having managed a respective ninth place in the semi-final. The success of the project has somewhat intrigued the broadcaster and therefore, an internal selection for 2013 seemed to be their best possible option and a couple of hours ago, it was revealed on the evening news bulletin that a duet featuring Vlatko Lozanoski and Esma Redžepova will represent FYR Macedonia in the upcoming continental competition taking place in Malmö, Sweden. The decision was set to be announced by the end of the year and indeed it was, just days before 2012 comes to an end.

Whilst the participants have been revealed, no details of the track have been given at this point in time although it is expected that like Kaliopi, the song will be presented in a special show on MRT sometime in February although more information is expected in the coming weeks. It is important to note that both artists are very popular in the Balkan region especially Esma who is known for her humanitary work and her folk career, having released around twenty (20) studio albums, more than a hundred (100) singles as well as acted in six (6) movies. She is known as being a mother to fifty two (52) children, out of which five (5) are her own and the rest are adopted. She was the runner-up of the national selection in 2006 in a duet with Adrian Gaxha.


On the other hand, Vlatko has just released his debut album which is one of the top ten most popular studio recordings of all time. He took part in the selection in 2009 and 2010 respectively but finished in fourth place on both occasions. Initial reports coming in from the public at large are extremely positive because people will be expecting a fusion of pop and folk, which has become renowned in the Balkan region over time due to the success achieved by several performers from all across the globe. In the news bulletin, both seemed to be overjoyed at the chance to represent their country saying that it is an honour for them to do so. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news as soon as it becomes available.
