Daniel Kajmakoski will be the Macedonian representative in Vienna. His song, ‘Esenski lisja’ (‘Autumn leaves’) is a mid-tempo song which was accompanied by piano and orchestra at Skopje Fest 2014. Third to perform out of 20 acts, he claimed a narrow win over former Eurovision participant Tamara Todevska.
Daniel Kajmokoski is the winner from the first series of X Factor Adria and was a pre-event favourite to win tonight. ‘Autumn leaves’ is self-written, together with Swede Joacim Persson. Daniel has lived almost all of his life in Austria, so will no doubt be a popular figure with the local media at Eurovision this year.
