Introducing 2013: FYR Macedonia!

I have decided to take a look at each entry this year, in a lead-up to the contest! There are 39 countries participating this year, all aiming to win in Malmo (well, some don't wanna win!) Turkey, Portugal, Slovakia and Bosnia & Herzegovina decided to withdraw this year, which was a shame, so lets hope they'll decide to return for 2014! I have drawn all the countries randomly and today it's FYR Macedonia's turn...

Esma Red┼żepova & Vlatko Lozanosk - Pred Da Se Razdeni!

The Macedonians are represented by the queen of Gypsy music and a local pop star! An interesting concept, I agree, but for some bizarre reason it really works. The country selected internally, like they did with Kaliopi last year. On 28th February Imperija was released through a special TV show but the video-clip was taken down just 24 hours after the release as it angered the Greeks as it fetrued some statue which they believe is theirs. Then it was announced that the song would be revamped with lyrical changes, because the song didn't go down well among the Macedonians. A week later, MRT confirmed that it will be changed for a completely different song.

Then on 15th March Pred Da Se Razdeni was made public. Unlike Imperija, it received negative feedback from the whole of Europe - very few like this song. They think that Esma ruins it - but I think that she is the best aspect of it I like the song but I still think that their original song would've been much better. Do you like the Macedonian song? Or would you of preferred Imperija? FYR Macedonia is the new Belarus!!!! HAHA! I'm pleased they're sticking to Macedonian - well they had too, Esma speaks very little English...
Me i Esma ake giljavav Tu mare vilen me ka takjarav...
