North Macedonia will decide on Junior Eurovision participation within the next few days.
Macedonian broadcaster MRT has confirmed to Eurovoix.com that they will make their decision on whether to participate in this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest in the next few days. The broadcaster was originally waiting for EBU instructions back in May, however the contest is currently still going ahead in November as planned.
At last year’s contest in Gliwice, Poland, the country finished in 6th place with Mila Moskov’s “Fire”. This was their best result since 2008, where they finished 5th.
