The ever-amazing Eye Cue have delivered their first live performance of Twitterverse favourite “Lost And Found”…and we are FAR from disappointed!
As expected, Marija’s vocals were clear, strong and note-perfect, filling the fanbase they have amassed with confidence that they could very well make it out of the bloodbath that Semi Final 1 has turned out to be.
Due to their surroundings, they kept the staging simple with just the two members of the band on stage without their drummer. But maybe simplicity is key, as this could be brought to the stage in the Altice Arena.

The reggae and EDM-tinged anthem took people by surprise when it dropped nearly two weeks ago, delighting those who have been rooting for the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia for years. Last year’s amazing studio cut from Jana Burceska signalled a turn toward the modern…and this year’s entry continues the trend.
The performance took place at Story Party, hosted by Story Magazine, a publication which discusses Balkan and international celebrities, and the news surrounding them. The social and awards event is held annually, but was in Macedonia for the first time this year, at the Hotel Alexander Palace on the outskirts of Skopje. Many Balkan celebrities attended, including past Macedonian Eurovision divas Tijana (2014) and her sister Tamara Todevska (2008) who won awards on the night for ‘Artistic Transformation’ and ‘Most Charismatic Pop Singer’ respectively.
Eye Cue left the event with a thoroughly-deserved award of their own for ‘Best Group’, giving them credit for their 10 years of great work together.
The first live viewing of “Lost and Found” comes just after news of their participation in many of the Eurovision pre-parties, including those in Amsterdam, Tel Aviv and Madrid.
Do you think they will get to the final for the first time since 2012? How well do you think Macedonia will do this year? Let us know in the comments box below!
