FYR Macedonia was one of the many countries to pick their entry for the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest on Super Saturday. The selection was carried out in the Skopje Festival, which has been a national institution for 40 years already. This year, the show began with a retrospective of several songs that took part in the national finals of Yugoslavia for the Eurovision Song Contest from the 60s till the 80s, performed by Silvi Band. After the performances of the competing songs to represent FYR Macedonia in the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest, the public was treated with an interval act which was full of amazing performances, most notably of Hari Mata Hari, who had represented Bosnia & Herzegovina in the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest and who is still one of the most famous singers in South-Eastern Europe. It even included a fashion show! Of course, the show also featured a tribute to Toše Proeski, the national pop hero who had died tragically in a car crash last year. He had represented FYR Macedonia in the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest with his song Life, reaching the 14th place.
