The Public Television of North Macedonia announced the return of the national final Eurosong, for the selection of the artist and the song that will represent the country in Eurovision 2022. Eurovisionfun exclusively reveals to you, the way in which the selection will be made.
A maximum of six songs will be selected, as announced, for the final selection of the Eurosong. In fact, in the relevant announcement, the public television of North Macedonia had previously announced the involvement of the public in the selection. Until the 16th of January, the interested creators and artists have the opportunity to send their proposal. Only citizens of North Macedonia have the right to participate in terms of performers, while the creators are allowed to be from abroad. The channel promises a transparent process, with the entries being presented to the public and with the result being judged by 50% by the international jury and 50% by the television audience of North Macedonia.
All of the above is known, but what is not known and you are reading it today, for the first time through Eurovisionfun, is that the competition process will be quite similar to that of the Czech Republic. Videoclips will be shot, in which the artists will probably perform their participations live, with a similar background, etc. Through these videos, the public and the international jury will be invited to vote, in order to select the song and the artist that will represent North Macedonia, at Eurovision 2022.
The television of North Macedonia does its best in order to organize a remarkable national final, even under these conditions, with democratic and meritocratic procedures, in order to select the best possible option for the contest. They hope that this will be the beginning of a series of national finals that in the long run, will become better at all levels.
North Macedonia was represented in last year’s competition by Vasil Garganliev, with the song Here I Stand, but without being able to reach the grand final.
