Vlatko Ilievski to Represent Macedonia

Macedonia became the latest country to choose its song for Dusseldorf after a marathon weekend of finals. Vlatko Ilievski beat nineteen other songs to become Macedonia’s 11th Eurovision Song Contest entry.  He will sing a song called Rusinka

The show itself was a bit of an all-nighter, lasting four hours. It was hosted by Elena Miteva and Zoran Mirchevski from Universal Hall in the capital, Skopje.
