Jana will represent FYR Macedonia in the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Dance Alone. 

Jana first rose to fame in FYR Macedonia in 2011 when she appeared on the first and only season of Macedonian Idol. Jana has taken part in more than 60 events supporting disadvantaged people since 2011. In the same year she took on the role of UNICEF Ambassador where she promoted schools free of violence.
Jana debuted in Skopje Fest, the Macedonian selection for the Eurovision Song Contest back in 2012 with the song Bi bila tvoja and immediately caught the attention of the public with her refined and sensitive stage performance and vocals. Participated again in 2013 and 2015 however in those years the contest was not used to select the Macedonian Eurovision Song Contest entry. When Jana was selected for Kyiv she said "My heart skipped a beat when I was told the good news and I have kept on smiling ever since."

What are the three most impressive facts about you?

I’ve done pushups with Batman on the Brooklyn Bridge, NYC. I can rap better than you think and I can fluently pronounce the German word Aufmerksamkeitsdefizitmedikamentenbeipackzettel.

Do you have a (lucky) routine before you go on stage?

I’m still working on it!

Why is the Eurovision Song Contest important for you?

It is an opportunity to show many that Europe is about different cultures, but similar values – this is witnessed by the number of viewers which proves that music unites people. The Eurovision Song Contest unites in times when unity is needed the most. If this doesn’t make it special and important, then what does?

Lyrics

English (Original)

Take out my hair, wash off my make up It’s gonna be a one man show I got a feel good infatuation And I’m the only one who knows
I will dance alone Wherever I am The rhythm follows I will dance alone I'm lost in the sound Of no tomorrow I let the pavement be my catwalk Oh bring the fire on, feel the heat And all I need to keep on movin’ Is the sound of my heartbeat
I will dance alone Wherever I am The rhythm follows I will dance alone I'm lost in the sound Of no tomorrow I let it go I, I I let it go wild I let it go I, I I let it go wild I will dance alone Wherever I am The rhythm follows
Take me to places that I’ve never been Show me the faces that I’ve never seen
I will dance alone Wherever I am The rhythm follows I will dance alone Im lost in the sound Of no tomorrow I let it go I, I I let it go wild I let it go I, I I let it go wild
I be dancin’ on my own Wishin’ you could hold me close…

French

Je prends mes cheveux, je lave mon maquillage Maintenant je suis importante Je suis tombée amoureuse avec ce bon sentiment Et je ne sais que moi
Je vais danser seule Peu importe où je suis Le rythme me suit Je vais danser seule Je suis perdue dans le son Demain n’existe pas Le trottoir, c’est mon podium Oh, tout devient très chaud, sente la chaleur Et tout ce que j'ai besoin pour continuer de danser C’est le son de mon cœur qui bat
Je vais danser seule Peu importe où je suis Le rythme me suit Je vais danser seule Je suis perdue dans le son Demain n’existe pas je m’en vais je perds le côntrole Je vais danser seule Peu importe où je suis Le rythme me suit Je vais danser seule
Apporte –moi à des endroits que je ne les ai pas visités Montrez-moi les visages que je ne les ai jamais vus
Je vais danser seule Peu importe où je suis Le rythme me suit Je vais danser seule Je suis perdue dans le son Demain n’existe pas je m’en vais je perds le côntrole je m’en vais je perds le côntrole

Je vais danser seule Et je serais être dans tes bras…
