FYR Macedonia’s MRT is hoping that 13 will be its lucky number. Today the broadcaster revealed that 13-year-olds Ivana Petkovska and Magdalena Aleksovska (not pictured at top) will sing for Skopje at Junior Eurovision 2015. We don’t know too much about the girls just yet, but we know that Miss Aleksovska likes tackling big songs, as seen below.

FYR Macedonia at Junior Eurovision
FYR Macedonia’s return to JESC comes after a one-year absence. In 2013 their starlet Barbara Popovic placed last with “Ohrid i muzika” — a fierce dance number that got some members of our in-house jury moving. “Can we get Barbara some boots because this is a real floor-stomper,” one juror wrote. “I love everything about this: Barbara’s energy, the frenetic choreography, the rhythm, the melody and, most of all, the fact that Barbara manages to sing while moving constantly.”
Even if the country has only placed in the Top 5 twice, they always bring upbeat Balkan-pop which leaves an impression. Are you as excited as we are?
