North Macedonia’s Junior Eurovision journey
North Macedonia debuted in Junior Eurovision in the first edition of the Contest in Copenhagen in 2003. Their first entry was “Ti ne me poznavaš”, performed by Marija and Viktorija. At the close of voting, the duo finished in 12th place, earning 19 points. Since then, North Macedonia have taken part in 16 editions of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. The only years which did not feature a North Macedonian artist were in 2012, 2014 and 2020; the last due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2021, North Macedonia was represented by Dajte Muzika, singing their song “Green Forces”. At the close of voting in Paris, the group finished in 9th position, receiving 114 points. Of these, 59 points came from online voting whilst the remaining 55 were given by the professional juries.
