Two years ago, it was Anggun. Last year it was Hannah. This year, it’s Tijana Dapcevic’s turn to lure the gay audience with some deliciously gratuitous eye candy.
The Macedonian contestant has just released her video for “To the Sky”, and it’s hot, hot, hot.
Granted, the video does not make much sense, and it’s hard to focus with so many gorgeous guys gazing back at us. But does Poland’s “Slavic Girls” video make any sense? Not to me, although I’m sure a lot of straight guys might disagree. Anyway, Tijana is looking fierce in every frame, but we can’t help looking to her right and left, where seriously FIT guys strut their stuff and pose provocatively.
Tijana also released the Serbian version and the Macedonian version of the video. Gurl is trying, y’all!
As our reviews show, we definitely hope she’ll make it to the Grand Final, and now we’re sold! But what do you think about Tijana’s attempt to get your votes next month? Will she get them or will she share Anggun and Hannah’s fate and flop despite the man-bait?

The models are more feminine than Tijana and Tijana is more masculine than models…Good effort to be the Former Yugoslav Imitation Of P!nk but you didn’t make it because P!nk has a great voice and talent and you have not!I hope not to torture our ears to the semifinal as you did in Amsterdam because I predict that you won’t be voted neither by the fyromian diaspora of 500 people in Europe….
could people please drop the Macedonia-Greece discussion. it is really boring to be honest…..
macedonia is macedonia and greece is greece…
@Marcelo N: Did I miss something in this video? Are they supposed to be soldiers or astronauts?
@ESCaddict: I think she will qualify, if they play their cards right–and carefully–with the stage performance. I have Carl from Norway winning the second round, with Paula and Ovi from Romania 2nd, and Tijana 3rd.
@ Erin – Thanks for the tip; hadn’t heard about the sequel. Of course, it is most likely going to be first-rate crap full of impossible effects and animation and oversized actors, but that’s the way they come served. I see now why the theme of soldiers and music is reviving (at a moooost untimely juncture, I must say) in video clips: Toojie, Mandinga, Tijana, just to name recent ESC acts.
Still it makes me sick to my stomach. I must insist, they should have learned better than playing with toy soldiers…
One friend of mine in Macedonia talked with me about the issue – they do “accept” that for the time being “the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia” is their provisional name (and all that Macedonia-Greece problem) but they say that using “FYROM” as such, as an abbreviation, is kind of humiliating. It’s like saying to someone “you are stupid” rather than “sir, your argument is invalid, please don’t raise your voice”.
I think that I’ve explained a bit. It’s weird to me, as well. 😉
@Marcelo – The connection was already made in 1986 with ‘Top Gun’ and the theme song ‘Take my Breath Away’. They’re now talking about a sequel to the original Top Gun, so there is a next generation to take her to the sky, take her breath away and take a chance on her. I think that some countries in the Balkans and Ukraine go too far with sexual permissiveness in their Eurovision videoclips (i.e Anti-Crisis Girl & Illusion & Shake It come to mind). In most cases it’s a stink bomb.
@Med Most world countries (including Romania) use the constitutional name Republic of Macedonia for bilateral purposes. However this is not the case here (no bilateral relations here) where the correct name is the only one (despite being provisional) that is recognized by international organizations (including EBU) and this is “the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia”.
As for the song it will struggle to qualify, is not a certain qualifier but neither a certain non-qualifier. I like the song and the singer it reminds me of Annie Lennox.
She’s “kind of OK”: she didn’t dance back then and she is still stationary. We can deal with it by now. What I don’t get is the celebrated association of soldiers and military stuff with lust and hotness. I mean, I understand homoerotica, and I get the obvious appeal to the male gay audience (a bit of a let-down as she defines herself as a party girl and not a fag-hag); but I find it quite offensive that it is still being used as a symbol. It is as if some people have not learned that guns (not here) and… Read more »
this porn has nice music!
@ESCaddict I felt the same when I first saw her video presentation. Her voice is kind of too deep for a woman. She reminds me of Anastacia because she sings really deep like a male-rock singer but her speaking voice is womanly.
The video is like the male version of My Slowanie from Poland… but this one is very boring. I wanted more dancing because the song is so catchy. Good luck to Macedonia though.
This video is creepy on so many levels. Give me Poland any day (or Belarus).
When I first saw Tijana I thought she was a drag act. This video brings back those thoughts; her hands look so big.
Any way I love the song (it is in my Top 3) & I hope it take flight and goes to the top of the score board.
I agree the video does not make a lot of sense. All the rapid edits & exposed flesh distracted me from the song. Still the eye candy was good.
Don’t mention Poland’s video. It is just creepy. All those boobs. Urgh!

Yup, it is a sticky subject, you’re right. Nonetheless, I think that this nonsense about their name isn’t very sticky as the Armenia-Azerbaijan one. 😛
Let’s just enjoy the music and for those into abs…well, look for yourself. 😛
Hi @Med: I wasn’t sure, so thank you for clarifying. It’s a sticky subject and we don’t want to offend anyone.
Very similar to the video for Echo two years ago.
Why Wiwibloggs is so much into using the “FYROM” abbreviation? You do know that usage of it causes stress to the Macedonians? 🙂
And Bogdan, I did a little research – if you want to use it, you should write FYR Macedonia cause that exactly it is stated in their UN resolution. And your country, Romania, recognised Macedonia under its name, without the FY.
God bless for my international relations studies. 😛
Where can I join this apocalypse preparedness group. Yum!
