Tijana, the Macedonian singer with a Serbian address, has finally revealed the name of her Eurovision entry. Here’s how she explained it the Macedonian press: “The title of the song is ‘Pobeda’ and certainly I’ve set the bar high to bring Eurovision here next year!”
To y’all who don’t speak the Macedonian language, pobeda means victory. Is her song’s title appropriate? We will find out in 177 days on the night of the Eurovision 2014 grand final! Well, assuming she makes it that far….
The singer recently revealed that her song will be fast and dynamic. “I think I’m on the right track when it comes to choosing a Eurovision song. I know for sure that I will sing in the Macedonian language. The author of the song is Macedonian and has a good idea to do a party in Copenhagen. The song will be dynamic enough to track my energy. I can sing a ballad, but it will not be that.”
She added that she wants to sing in Macedonian to show Europe that music has no boundaries—linguistic or otherwise.
As we previously reported, she will be joined on stage by her sister Tamara Todevska (Macedonia 2008) and her friend Leontina Vukomanovic (the author of the lyrics of “My Lane”, the Serbian and Montenegrin entry in 2004 ).
On January 15 Tijana will officially present her entry on Macedonian TV. At that time we will all compare it to Tamara’s effort to win five years earlier in Belgrade. This much is certain: The sisters Todevska want to make us move!
