FYR Macedonia, hear Kaliopi's entry live tonight

29 February 2012 at 01:40 CET

The show will be held at 21:00 CET and will last for an hour and a half. Broadcaster MKRTV has promised many surprises during the course of the evening, and has stated that artists from FYR Macedonia and other Balkan nations will perform in the build up to the premiere of the entry for Europe's Favourite TV Show in Baku.

Kaliopi Bukle is the artist representing FYR Macedonia. The title of Kaliopi's entry in Baku is Crno I Belo. Kaliopi has written the text herself and the song was composed by Romeo Grill.

Kaliopi has recently appeared as a guest in the Croatian national selection, Dora 2012 where she performed alongside the representative for Croatia in Baku, Nina Badrić.

Kaliopi was actually chosen to represent her country in the 1996 Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo, with the song Samo Ti, but unfortunately, as there were 29 countries vying for 22 places that year alongside hosts Norway, she was eliminated in a behind closed doors semi final, along with Israel, Germany, Denmark, Russia, Romania and Hungary.
