On Tuesday we interviewed FYR Macedonia’s happiest girls, Ivana Petkovska and Magdalena Aleksovska during the Opening Ceremony of Junior Eurovision 2015.

Their friendship is like a braid — a very tight braid, actually! As the braid grows, their friendship grows.

Since the two met each other, they have had a lot of sleepovers and several parties. Their friendship was also an inspiration to write their song “Pletenka”, since the song is about the braid of love and friendship. And despite “Pletenka” being a fun pop song, both girls actually prefer ballads!

The friends also gave us a sassy performance of “Bang Bang”, showing that they have the vocal chops.
