jana burceska macedonia photo shoot eurovision 2017 (1)

She’s the Macedonian stunner who has been something of a mystery to Eurovision fans for several months.

But on Tuesday singer Jana Burceska stepped out of the shadows and into the spotlight with an exclusive behind-the-scenes video published on the wiwibloggs YouTube channel.

Filmed during her most recent (and final) Eurovision 2017 photo shoot, the video shows Jana to be a gym-honed diva with big personality and rock-hard abs. There’s fire in her veins and we have the sneaky suspicion she’ll be a favourite of the press corps and fans alike in the run-up to Kyiv.

Showing off her Top Model potential, Jana looks completely at ease as a team of her country’s top stylists blow dry her voluminous and silky tresses.

Confident in her natural beauty, the Macedonian Idol alum plays a subtle make-up game, opting for the lightest dusting of blush and a smear of pink lippie.

“Yoo-hoo — hi guys!” she says to camera as she takes a break from the pampering and posing. “We’re doing the final official Eurovision photoshoot today. I’m here at this wonderful studio and very, very, very excited as you can tell.”

Wearing a brightly coloured halter top and a pair of finely tailored trousers, she shows off her delicate skin and flatpack stomach while she laughs and smiles and flaunts her endlessly lithe arms.

“Oo, la, la — they say I look hot and sexy. I don’t know if this is true, but if you agree thanks.”

“We’re going to change a couple of outfits, different styles, something that suits the song which you have no idea what it sounds like, but we’ll find out soon.”

Looking around the clothing rack, we see a thigh-skimming plum skirt and another silky skirt in bright yellow and black. That gives us the strong suspicion Jana will deliver something bold, breezy and bright — a welcome change of pace in a year that’s been exceedingly heavy on ballads. Down with dour, right?

Macedonia song reveal: March 10

Jana’s song was selected from more than 200 international submissions — a real statement of Macedonia’s ambitions this year.

“My heart beats high speed when I think of the promotion of the song,” Jana said in a statement sent to wiwibloggs. “We all worked extremely hard on perfecting the final product and I really, truly, deeply hope the audience will like it. Enormous thanks to the full team behind both the audio and video, as well as to the continuous support by my domestic team from the National Broadcaster. Excitement is inevitable and hopefully contagious — looking forward to the public’s feedback!”

On Tuesday the Macedonian delegation confirmed that they will reveal Jana’s song on March 10 at 20:15 CETYou can watch the reveal on this web stream.

Aleksandra Jovanovska, Head of Press for Macedonia and a dear friend of wiwibloggs, will present the song and video during her music show Stisni Play.

Among other things, Jana’s team will announce full details about the creative and artistic team responsible for the song, video and stage performance.

@Noone it is quite sad! F.Y.R. Macedonia has really been playing around with their formula the last four years (granted they used Kaliopi twice, and the second time was a little lacklustre compared to her 2012 entry), so it’d be nice if they’d be able to qualify! It’s hard since you can tell they’re trying (at least from my perspective), so a qualification should be due soon. 🙂

If it’s somewhere near what Serbia has, then we may be able to have a few Balkan countries make it! It’s a good thing they’re separated in the SFs, just in case.

So the song will be released on 10 March at 20:15 CET. But the real question here is: When will it be leaked?

Failing to add ALMA and DEMY says that you are biased.
Those 2 are the hottest girls this year ……. Jana follows.

BTW good luck to Macedonia because NQ 5 years in a row would be just sad. Still, it can be a borderline qualifier looking at the songs we have in this semi, but i somehow have higher hopes for Montenegro. Still nothing can beat Romania #BUCHAREST 2018

I mean, she doesn’t look bad, but she isn’t neccesarily hot. Hot may be Ilinca, Miruna from Timebelle or Anja Nissen. I think her song is gonna be meh

I am more than ready for a S O N G (!!!) to fall in love with this year. Although Italy is coming close…
It ain’t over till it’s over. Fingers crossed.

This article isn’t making her any favours. Spare us the abs and release the song already.

From what I have witnessed this year(Songs are weak) I think they have high chances on qualifying or even winning
