At the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv, Ukraine, Jana Burčeska represented Macedonia with the song “Dance Alone”. In the second semi-final, Macedonia finished 15th with a total of 69 points. FYR Macedonia has had a string of poor results in recent years failing to reach the final every year since 2012.


The last singer to bring Macedonia to the Grand Final was Kaliopi. In 2012, she finished in 13th place in the Eurovision final in Baku. In 2016, Kaliopi came back to the competition in Stockholm. However, her dong ‘Donna’ did not gather enough points to bring her and her country back to the final.
