Macedonia confirms participation for Eurovision 2015!
Yesterday, Cyprus announced their return for Eurovision next year and today, another country has signed up.
Macedonian national channel MRT has announced that they will be participating next year in Austria!
It did not look too promising for a Macedonian Eurovision entry for next year, following failure to qualify for the final again this year and the negative result of a poll conducted on MRT’s website. Macedonia last qualified in 2012.
But, Macedonia is back in full force, returning to their national final format of choosing through the Skopje Fest. Twenty artists will compete for victory at the festival, and the honor of representing their country in Austria.
The selection will use a 50/50 mix of jury and televote, emulating Eurovision voting.
Skopje Fest 2014 will take place on November 13, only four months away. The twenty songs will be shortlisted after the submission deadline of July 31.
