Over the weekend wiwibloggs traveled to the beautiful city of Amsterdam to attend Eurovision in Concert, perhaps the hottest event on the Eurovision promotional calendar. During the press day we rushed to Macedonian heartthrob Daniel Kajmakoski, who is probably used to people throwing themselves at him. He won the first season of X-Factor Adria — the pan-Balkan singing contest — and emerged as Balkan Ballad King Zeljko Joksimovic’s protége. We caught up with him inside Vondel Park and he revealed that he has a big surprise waiting for us in Vienna. He is, of course, talking about his performance of “Autumn Leaves” (though he is very tall…). Daniel also talks about his upbringing, his family’s love of Eurovision and explains how the contest gave rise to his name.
You can watch the full interview below. Then check out our video of his live performance. He’s giving some major Macedonian R&B hip-hop realness. Just check out the styling!
