Guests, juries and orchestra
Two former participants in the Eurovision Song Contest, Karolina Goceva (2002, 2007) and Kaliopi (2012), will entertain the audience during the televoting.
MRT invited the expert international jury panels from seven different countries. Each panel consists of five members. The jury will watch the dress rehearsal on the day before the F.Y.R. Macedonian final and give their votes (50%). Another 50 % the 20 contestants will get from the televoting during the final on the 12th of November.
This season, MRT celebrates not only the 60th anniversary of the Eurovision Song Contest but also 50 years of MKRTV. The F.Y.R. Macedonian national selection will be accompanied by the MRT orchestra with Ljupčo Mirkovski as a conductor.
