In another huge announcement, MTV has just announced that local pop diva Kaliopi will represent FYR Macedonia at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Baku!
The FYR Macedonia broadcaster MRT has decided to select internal for 2012 and they have chosen popular pop singer Kaliopi. The song will be decided in a similar process to the 2004 entry, when Tose Proeski represented the country.
Kaliopi first tried to represent the country back in 1996 with “Samo ti”, but was unable to make it to the final and did not qualify to the Eurovision Song Contest. To date, Kaliopi is one of the most famous performers in the country and has released nine albums with countless hits. Additionally, she is an honorary ambassador of UNICEF in the country and has several awards to go with the honours. In 2009, she finished second in Skopje Fest with “Rum Dum Dum”.
