Jana Burčeska: “I want to make Macedonia great again”

Jana Burčeska is closing off her preparations for the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, where she will represent FYR Macedonia. After a streak of bad results, she is eager to get a good result. “I want to make my country great again, at Eurovision.”

“We are almost ready”, Jana tells us during Eurovision in Concert. “We rehearse and rehearse, it is the mother of all knowledge. How it will look, everyone wants to know, but everyone needs to stay patient.”

Even Kaliopi did not reach the final

The results for FYR Macedonia at the Eurovision Song Contest have been bad since 2012, when Kaliopi was the last artist to make it to the final. She returned last year in Stockholm, but failed to be successful again.

Why does Jana step in for her country? “It was motivating. I want to make my country great again, at Eurovision. We all work hard and invest a lot of time and effort. I hink no one will neglect this choice this year.”
