From Albania we head across the border to Macedonia who are looking to qualify for their first final since the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Baku, Azerbaijan.
As ever 50% of the vote is being decided by national juries and 50% by you, the public. This creates the most accurate representation of a result likely to be seen in the final of the Eurovision Song Contest this May in Lisbon.
Each voting nation is represented by a jury consisting of past Eurovision, Junior Eurovision and national final participants. Each juror is asked to form a top 10 ranking of their favourite competing songs which is combined with the other jurors in their country. On the jury for Macedonia is:
- Jana Burčeska – Represented Macedonia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 with the song “Dance Alone”
The results of the Macedonian jury from 1 to 12 points is as follows:
- 1 point – Norway – Alexander Rybak – That’s How You Write A Song
- 2 points – Slovenia – Lea Sirk – Hvala, Ne!
- 3 points – France – Madame Monsieur – Mercy
- 4 points – Switzerland – Zibbz – Stones
- 6 points – Belgium – Sennek – A Matter of Time
- 5 points – Austria – Cesar Sampson – Nobody But You
- 7 points – Bulgaria – Equinox – Bones
- 8 points – Israel – Netta Barzilai – Toy
- 10 points – Sweden – Benjamin Ingrosso – Dance You Off
- 12 points – Czech Republic – Mikolas Josef – Lie to Me
This means after sixteen juries the full results so far are follows:
- Israel – Netta Barzilai – Toy – 139 points
- Czech Republic – Mikolas Josef – Lie to Me – 91 points
- Sweden – Benjamin Ingrosso – Dance You Off – 70 points
- Australia – Jessica Mauboy – We Got Love – 65 points
- Bulgaria – Equinox – Bones – 65 points
- Austria – Cesar Sampson – Nobody But You – 54 points
- Belgium – Sennek – A Matter of Time – 39 points
- Norway – Alexander Rybak – That’s How You Write A Song – 43 points
- Finland – Saara Aalto – Monsters – 41 points
- Germany – Michael Schulte – You Let Me Walk Alone – 40 points
Five countries are yet to score a point from the national juries, Slovenia has now picked up their first points.
