Macedonia’s Head of Delegation, Meri Popova, in a short statement to the local press has revealed that Eye Cue’s Eurovision entry “Lost and Found” will be presented to the public on March 11th.
Earlier this month the band was announced as the representatives of the small Balkan country in Lisbon this May. However, even now not much has been revealed regarding Eye Cue’s entry.
The premiere of “Lost and Found”
In the very short statement, Mrs.Popova informed us that the song will have a radio and a TV premiere on March 11th. Further information regarding plans of shooting a music video, promo tour dates and delegation members will follow upon the release of the song.
Despite keeping this rather secretive, in a televised interview regarding their Eurovision plans, both Marija and Bojan confirmed that preparations are in full swing.
How did Eye Cue come to be?
MRTV received over 300 submissions to represent the country in Lisbon. Among those, a panel of music professionals felt that Eye Cue with their entry “Lost and Found” were the most competent project overall and got the golden ticket to Eurovision.
Borjan Trajkovski has written the lyrics for Eye Cue’s entry. Furthermore, Darko Dimitrov has produced the song. MRTV will reveal the song at a later date. Trajkovski is also one of the members of the Macedonian band that will now fly their flag to the Eurovision Song Contest 2018.
The production of Eye Cue’s entry “Lost and Found” falls in the hands of Eurovision veteran, Darko Dimitrov. Being no stranger to the contest, Darko already has two entries in the running for the Eurovision trophy. He’s also the producer on Serbia’s 2018 entry “Nova Deca” performed by Sanja Ilic & Balkanika.
Macedonia at Eurovision
The small Balkan country started it’s Eurovision journey in the distant 1998 with Vlado Janveski’s “Ne Zori, Zoro”, finishing nineteenth with sixteen points. Some of the more significant entries include “Life” by the late Tose Proeski, Elena’s “Ninanajna” and Kaliopi’s “Crno i Belo“.
Last year, Jana Burceska failed to reach the final with her “Dance Alone” despite being a fan favourite. Jana finished fifteenth out of eighteen competing songs in the second Semi-Final. However, she left Kyiv with an engagement ring around her finger, so it wasn’t all bad for her!
Are you looking forward to hearing Eye Cue’s “Lost and Found”? What kind of a song are you hoping to hear? Could they take Macedonia back to the grand final of the contest?
