A total of 128 songs were submitted to the broadcaster, MKRTV. Only 28 were chosen to participate in the extravaganza, which peaks on Saturday. The first half of those took the stage today, the other half to follow tomorrow.
But before the competitors could perform, the audience could see the charming twin brothers from the band called Next Time, who represented the country last year in Moscow. But then it's was time for the contestants to show what they've got and the audience to start voting. See the running order below:
  1. Duo Slide - Mrazam - 0 points from the jury, 5 points from televoting, a total of 5 points
  2. Suzana Spasovska & Darko Nešovski - Bog Go Ima Sekoj Kljuc - 12 points from the jury, 6 points from televoting, a total of 18 points
  3. Kerber - Chorbadzija - 0 points from the jury, 0 points from televoting, a total of 0 points
  4. Treta Dimenzija - Bolest Zaraza - 3 points from the jury, 4 points from televoting, a total of 7 points
  5. Tumbao Salsa Bend - Poludena Vo Nokta Studena - 6 points from the jury, 0 points from televoting, a total of 6 points
  6. Bravo Band - Taa Ima Se - 2 points from the jury, 10 points from televoting, a total of 12 points
  7. Vlatko Ilievski - Sreka - 10 points from the jury, 12 points from televoting, a total of 22 points
  8. Gorjan Stojanovski - Najmila - 4 points from the jury, 1 points from televoting, a total of 5 points
  9. Aleksandar Belov - Ostani - 7 points from the jury, 8 points from televoting, a total of 15 points
  10. Gjoko Taneski - Jas Ja Imam Silata - 8 points from the jury, 7 points from televoting, a total of 15 points
  11. Daniel Stojmanovski - Akcija Reakcija - 0 points from the jury, 0 points from televoting, a total of 0 points
  12. Darko Ilievski - Lagi - 5 points from the jury, 3 points from televoting, a total of 8 points
  13. Nataša Malinkova - Sever I Jug - 1 point from the jury, 2 points from televoting, a total of 3 points
  14. Igor Mitrovic - Malecka - 0 points from the jury, 0 points from televoting, a total of 0 points
After Igor finished, the audience still had 15 minutes to continue voting. After all, they had a 50% say in who will be in the final. Until that time ran out, some of FYR Macedonia former representatives at the Junior Eurovision Song Contests, gave smashing performances of the winning song of the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest - Fairytale - , the Turkish representative that year, Düm Tek Tek and Tose Proeski's 2004 entry, called Life. They ended with the runner-up from 2009, Yohanna's Is It True, Ruslana's winning song from 2004, Wild Dances, and the song who everyone at today's contest wants to follow - Next Time's Neshto Shto Ke Ostane.

Time for results!

But then, it was time for results. The jury voted for all the songs one by one and then the televotes were given. After the nerve breaking voting, it was sure the participants given in bold in the list before, would be the ones to experience even bigger nervousness on Saturday. It was Vlatko Ilievski's song who got a landslide victory in the televoting with 1157 votes and Suzana Spasovska & Darko Nešovski got the jury vote with Bog Go Ima Sekoj Kljuc. This is also the order they finished in the semi-final - the first one winning it and the second one following it.
Stay tuned for tomorrow's second semi-final, then you'll see who still is in the game to win the right to represent FYR Macedonia at Europe's favourite TV-show in May.
