FYR Macedonia’s MKRTV handpicked her to sing for the country at Junior Eurovision 2016 way back in July.
And on Monday singer Martija Stanojkovic proved she’d put the months of August and September to very good use as she finally revealed her JESC song “Love Will Lead Our Way”.
In the three-minute music video the 12-year-old vocalist makes it clear that she believes in the power of love to raise one’s spirits and keep the storms at bay.
The video sees the Kumanovo-born talent voguing in darkness before the beat picks up and the colour explodes.
As she dances and grooves with her pals, she works a variety of looks, including a red-and-black flannel shirt, an Adidas originals tank top, denim cutoffs and a fierce green bomber jacket with on-trend aviator sunglasses.
Perhaps hinting at what we’ll see in Malta, she and her possee perform some decidedly urban choroegraphy, giving this a touch of street.
The Balkan nation hasn’t had the best of luck in recent years, finishing last in its last two appearances.
Perhaps this more mid-tempo offering, which mixes up the country’s genre at JESC, will steer them up the scoreboard?
What do you think of this piece of ethnic pop? Where do you think it’ll finish? You can let us know in the comments box below.
