As expected, North Macedonia will select their entry for the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest via an internal selection. This is according to information tweeted by North Macedonia’s most notable Twitter fan page.
Fifth consecutive internal selection
Macedonian broadcaster MRT has internally selected their Eurovision entries since 2016, with Daniel Kajmakoski the latest Macedonian entrant to be selected via a national final in 2015. In the past months, it has been widely suggested North Macedonia will continue with an internal selection and today’s reports only reaffirm those beliefs.
Can North Macedonia build on 2019 success?
North Macedonia are heading into their 20th appearance at the Eurovision Song Contest on the back of their most successful Eurovision year to date. Tamara Todevska earned her nation their highest ever finish at the contest, placing 7th in the grand final. This result included placing 1st in the jury vote, a first for North Macedonia. In the 2019 Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Mila Moskov earned North Macedonia their second-best ever finish with a 6th place finish with “Fire”.
Vasil Garvanliev leads the rumour mill
The heavily rumoured choice to represent North Macedonia in Rotterdam is Vasil Garvanliev. Rumours that MRT was in the process of selecting him originated back in October. He’s well known to the broadcaster following his appearance in Tel Aviv as a backing singer for Tamara Todevska.
