Jana Burčeska is feeling the pressure of representing FYR Macedonia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, as the country has not made it to the final since 2012. Last year, even Kaliopi could not qualify for the show on Saturday. “I am aware of the responsibilities I must bear,” Jana tells her broadcaster.
Broadcaster MRT has chosen her through an internal selection. The song will be presented at a later stage. “My heart skipped a beat when I was told the good news and I have kept on smiling ever since”, said Burčeska.
Jana already got a slight taste of fame, when she took part in Idols in Macedonia in 2010. She ended up in fifth place in the first edition of that contest in the Balkan country. She also took part in Skopje Fest a couple of times, when the show was not being used as a selection method for Eurovision.
“My mind, body and soul are devoted to this project, especially because it is something I have dreamed of since I was a child. Hours and hours building castles in the sky will soon come true through this adventurous challenge ahead of me”, added Jana.
