She was one of the first artists to be announced for Eurovision 2017 and later today she’ll finally reveal her entry.
And this morning FYR Macedonia’s Jana Burceska continued to build the suspense by releasing her song title: “Dance Alone”.
She did so on Facebook, publishing a video that shows her in the studio following her final recording session.
“After five hours of work I think we finally have the song. It’s been a very, very fruitful session. The team is amazing, the musical producers, the team from the national broadcaster also. I must say everyone looks pretty satisfied and happy, so we can’t wait to share the song with you and we hope you’ll love it.”
Jana has been teasing us over the last few days with several videos. You can hear some very cool electro tunes in all of them. The funky background music — and the explicit title of her song — suggests that she’ll be busting a move, perhaps like the girls of Love Generation did back at Melodifestivalen 2011! This much we’re certain of: This is unlikely to be a boring ballad!
Behind the scenes of “Dance Alone” with Jana Burceska
There’s just a few more hours before we can listen to the full song.
“Dance Alone” will be revealed tonight at 20.15 CET during MRT’s show Stisni Play.
You can watch the show live here.
FYR Macedonia haven’t qualified for the grand final of Eurovision since 2012. After four straight years of not qualifying — and coming so close in 11th in last year’s semi- final — MRT decided to internally select Jana. Is it about to pay off?
In recent months the broadcaster opened a call for submissions — receiving more than 200 songs. “Dance Alone” emerged as the winner. We can’t wait to find out who’s behind it, and most importantly, how Jana’s going to perform it!
