Monday was a long day, as eight acts took to the Eurovision stage for their first rehearsals. Amongst them was Macedonia’s representative, Daniel Kajmakoski. He may have been last up, but he certainly wasn’t feeling any pressure. In fact even though it was a hard day’s work, he found it fun more than anything else. He’s very happy with the staging. He finds the overall effect very beautiful, although the pillars and urban dancers have no special symbolism. Daniel also spoke of his X Factor days, and how Eurovision is a major step up – everyone’s a superstar. His mentor from the show, Zeljko Joksimovic, is writing the Montenegrin entry, but there’s no rivalry between the pair. That’s the true Eurovision spirit y’all! To find out the full story, watch the interview below.

You can write something about that, but you would need better source (ask your colleagues from Macedonia).
