FYR Macedonia to pick representative tonight

The FYR Macedonian representatives in the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest are being chosen in the Skopje Festival, a three-day show, broadcast live from the Univerzalna Sala in Skopje. In the last two days, two semi-finals have taken place, and in each of them, eight finalists were chosen out of sixteen candidates. Tonight, the final concert will take place, and this is the full line-up of artists and songs:

  • Next Time - Nešto Što Ke Ostane
  • Risto Samardžiev & Zoran Džorlev - 103 Beli Lebedi
  • Sleng - Gengsta Oro
  • Proekt Makedonija - Pomalku Naivno
  • Daniel - Sila Na Ljubovta
  • Andrijana Janevska - Drvo Bez Koren
  • Kostadin Papa - Za Nea Postojam
  • Verče Pandilovska - Severno Od Mene, Južno Od Tebe
  • Naum Petreski & Kaliopi - Rum Dum Dum (Zbogum)
  • Vlatko Lozanoski - Blizku Do Mene
  • Aleksandar Belov - Sastani, Solzi Izbriši
  • Bravo Band - Devojko
  • Vlatko Ilievski - Najbogat Vo Svet
  • Kristijan - Nema Da Zboram
  • Rok Agresori - Ding Dong
  • Dejan Trifunovski - Ljubovta Doaga

Just like in the semi-finals, the result of the final will be decided by a 50/50 combination of televoting and the verdict of an expert jury, consisting of twelve members. Last year, FYR Macedonia came 11th in the Second Semi-Final of the Eurovision Song Contest and, thus, did not qualify for the Final. The best result to date was reached by Elena Risteska in 2006 - she came 12th in the Final of the Eurovision Song Contest with her song Ninanajna.
