Posted by Pedro.Eurovisionontop on February 17, 2018 at 7:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Out of 382 submitted songs the national broadcaster and a expert jury selected Eye cue.


Eye cue is one of the best bands in the country, which started out in 2008.


The title of the song is "Lost & Found" - kind of a descprition of the participations of Macedonia in the last years... kind of lost in the competition, but maybe this year they found the best for a victory.

Kaliopi: I will give my performance of a lifetime

Posted by Pedro.Eurovisionontop on December 19, 2015 at 6:55 PM Comments comments (0)

Kalipoi is a very good known eurovision artist and brought the vest ranking of all times to FYR Macedonia. Also for our readers Kaliopi is very known and her singles always go directly to our charts.

It was in 2012 (Baku) that Kaliopi sang for FYR Macedonia and it was the best qualification ever for this eurovision country making the 13th place. FYR Macedonia started in 1996 to participate and was represented by the same Kaliopi, just the result was worser, making the 26th of 29th place. So it will be Kaliopi's third time at the Contest.


We are very proud to had the exclusive chance to have a short pre-interview with Kaliopi at this very early moment, knowing that Kaliopi still is working on everything.


Read now what the first insights of Kaliopi's participation are.


1. Kaliopi, just tell us how do you feel returning to Eurovision?

 

Excellent! I can't wait to come to Stockholm and hang out with ESC fans, journalist and amazing staff!

2. Tell us, what is the story behind your return? How was this decision made?

 

I was invited by the MRT (Macedonian Radio Television) to represent my country again. After some thinking I've decided to come back at ESC stage with a good, proven musical recipe alongside Romeo Grill.


 

3. It's still very early, but what could the fans expect from your return?

Since ESC fans always have high expectations, I can promise that they will be very satisfied and happy with what I'll bring them next year. They really deserved it, and ESC fans are the main reason for my return at the stage of the ESC.


4. Could you already give anything about your song and performance?

With the song for ESC 2016 I will give you my performance of a lifetime. I can guarantee this because once again I have Romeo Grill as an author by my side - he knows my sensibility and feelings and knows exactly what the audience wants to hear and receive from me.

5. How will be the way for you to select the right song? Or is the song already selected?

At the moment we are working hard on ESC2016 song, and once again, as in 2012, Romeo and I are creating unique music without flirting with musical trends and styles. We create our music in such authentic way – and ours songs look just like us.



6. What are your objectives for the Eurovision 2016?

At least to repeat the success from 2012 and once again to give a great song that people around the world will sing for a long time!


Eurovision on top thanks Kaliopi fpr this chance to get already some information and first impressions about the Kaliopi we will see in 2016.

Posted by Pedro.Eurovisionontop on November 28, 2015 at 5:00 AM Comments comments (0)

The last weeks were with less news, but when there have been news like for example the one about Germany's announcement of Naidoo it turned fast into a scandal.


But this week was once again one of the weeks the eurovision fans like. Some announcements of participants of good old known former artists. Also a record participation of countries at the 61st edition of the eurovision song contest next year.

Bosnia was the last time in 2012 (Baku) at the contest and missed during the last years in due to financial issues. But with the support of a new sponsor the national broadcaster BHRT announced the return in 2016.


Croatia had the last participation in 2013 (Malmö;) missed the final and missed afterwards two times at the contest. But in 2016 also Croatia will be back, so the news of HRT.


Bulgaria just hosted successfully the junior eurovision and last years second place and because Italy passed the possibility to host the junior to the second placed. Perhaps this was one of the reasons for the national broadcaster BNT to return to the contest.


Ukraine is one of the most successful nations at the contest and participated for the last time 2014 in Copenhagen, the year when the conflict in the home country began. NTU now announced also the return of Ukraine, what was kind of little surprise as there was a lot of doubts, if it would be a priority to this country to join the contest, having to handle so much challenges in the own boarders. But there is no doubt that Ukraine will enrich the contest!


2. Kaliopi will return to eurovision and sing for FYR Macedonia


 

It was in 2012 (Baku) that Kaliopi sang for FYR Macedonia and it was the best qualification ever for this eurovision country making the 13th place.
