The title of North Macedonia’s Eurovision 2020 entry has been revealed.
This afternoon the Macedonian national broadcaster MRT revealed that their entry for the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest will be called “You”. This was revealed after the broadcaster made an open call for songs to be submitted by the end of January, however the release date for the song remains unknown.
It was revealed in January that Vasil Garvanliev will represent North Macedonia at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Speaking about his selection, Vasil stated: “I am beyond honoured to present my country at the Song Contest in Rotterdam and I can hardly wait to put all my experience and knowledge into creating a magical journey that will touch people’s heart across Europe.”
Vasil started his musical journey at age 7, performing at some of North Macedonia’s most popular children’s festivals. Soon thereafter, he moved with his family to the United States, where he continued his career as a soloist at the Chicago Children’s Choir. He continued his musical training in Toronto and Milan.
Vasil returned to North Macedonia in 2018, and launched his own pop career there with three successful singles: “Gjerdan” (Necklace), “Patuvam” (Travelling) and “Mojata Ulica” (My street). He was also a backing singer for Tamara Todevska in last year’s contest in Tel Aviv.
North Macedonia debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1998, however, two years earlier they attempted to participate but was knocked out in the pre-qualifying round. In 2016 they were represented by Kaliopi for a second time with the song “Dona”, she missed out on the final finishing in 11th in her semi-final. North Macedonia’s best result to date is a 7th place finish in the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest represented by Tamara Todevska and the song “Proud”.
