This Weeks Highlights
North Macedonia, previously presented in the contest as the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (F.Y.R. Macedonia), has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 21 times since its official debut in 1998. The country had attempted to participate in 1996, but failed to qualify from the audio-only qualifying round. The current Head of Delegation is Meri Popova. Prior to 2019, North Macedonia’s best result was a 12th-place finish with Elena Risteska in 2006. Having qualified from the semi-final round only once in ten of the previous eleven contests (2008–18), North Macedonia achieved its best result to date in 2019, when Tamara Todevska qualified and finished in seventh place in the final after winning the jury vote.
In 2022, Andrea was selected to represent North Macedonia after winning the national selection, Za Evrosong 2022. As there was a tie for first place, Andrea was declared the winner as she received maximum points from the international jury. At Eurovision, Andrea performed on 12 May 2022, in the second semi-final. She failed to qualify to the grand final, finishing 11th out of 18 participants.
