The final of North Macedonia’s national selection Za Evrosong 2022 has just taken place and we have a winner! Andrea will represent North Macedonia in the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Circles”.
A recap of Za Evrosong
After a week of online voting, the scores gathered were then combined into the International Jury. The six artists competing in tonight’s final, and their respective final placements were:
|Artist||Competing song||Jury |
|Kaly||“Love and Light”||6||10||16||3rd|
|Lara Ivanova||“Flower of Sorrow”||10||5||15||4th|
|Ris Flower||“Flying to Berlin”||5||6||11||6th|
Despite Andrea and Viktor scoring 20 points, it was the jury vote that became the deciding factor, with Andrea, therefore, being selected as the winner.
North Macedonia’s Eurovision Journey
The upcoming year will see North Macedonia’s 21st participation at Eurovision. The ex-Yugoslav nation made its formal debut in the Contest in 1998 with Vlado Janevski’s “Ne zori, zoro”. Performing last, North Macedonia finished 19th out of 25.
Following Kaliopi’s participation in 2012 with “Crno i Belo”, North Macedonia began a 6-year non-qualification streak. Tamara Todevska’s participation in 2019 broke the streak with her song, “Proud” – which finished in 7th place, winning the jury vote.
In 2021, Vasil represented North Macedonia, after his initial participation was hampered by the coronavirus pandemic. Singing “Here I Stand”, Vasil performed in the first semi-final, finishing in 15th place out of 16. In total, Vasil received 23 points.
