Next up on our search for the ideal 2016 line-up is Macedonia. Who did you want to see singing for the country and return them to the final after three years?
It seems you trust the last Macedonian finalist to do the job again! Kaliopi was our readers’ poll favourite to represent Macedonia in 2016. The singer, who gained many fans after her passionate performances in 2012, qualified for the final with “Crno i Belo” and ultimately finished 13th. Since then she has had a slew of releases culminating in a showcase performance during the last Skopje Fest back in November which had many on our forum praying for her return to the Eurovision stage.
Second place in the poll went to the runner-up of Skopje Fest for 2015, Tamara Todevska, who has also previously represented Macedonia with Vrčak and Adrian in 2008. Third place is for alternative group Bei the Fish who have steadily grown a large following both in and out of Macedonia.
