FYR Macedonia: Kaliopi will take part in 2016

Macedonian singer Kaliopi is set to return to the Eurovision Song Contest! The singer, who last represented FYR Macedonia in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2012, will perform a song written by Romeo Grill, the author of her entry ‘Crno i belo’.

Kaliopi, who is the biggest pop star in FYR Macedonia, was chosen as her country’s debut representative in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1996. However, she failed to qualify to the final from a pre-selection round held prior to the final. In 2012 she placed 13th in the Grand Final in Baku, scoring 71 points.

Macedonian national broadcaster MKRTV announced that Kaliopi will present her entry for Stockholm in a television special to be aired at the end of February.
