ARTIST

Broadcaster MKRTV has chosen Tamara Todevska to represent NorthMacedonia at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest. Tamara has graced the Eurovision stage more than once, but this will be her first appearance as a solo artist!

Tamara has been on stage since she was six years old and comes from a family of musicians; her mother is an opera singer at the Macedonian Opera, her father a professor at the Academy of Music in Skopje and her sister is Tijana Dapcevic, who represented the country at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest.

Tamara herself is no stranger to the Eurovision Song Contest either, as she has taken the stage three times before: As a backing singer for the late Tose Proeski in 2004, as part of the trio Tamara, Vrčak & Adrijan in 2008 and as a backing singer for her sister Tijana in 2014.

As of yet, Tamara has a track record of two solo albums and many hit singles in her home country. She performed a solo concert in 2015 at the largest indoor venue in Skopje for an audience of thousands of fans.

Tamara is aiming for the second position at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest, since she is dubbed “the eternal second” while performing at numerous pop music festivals. But she is still hopeful that people will expect her to snatch the trophy this year!Tamara’s song will be announced at a later date.

OPINION

It’s very of the moment of ‘the women are taking over the world’ etc and could be the ballad equivalent of ‘Toy’ but either way it’s a bit too drab for me.

PREDICTION

It’s not for me but I’m sure it will qualify and could even end up in the top 10.

LYRICS

“[Verse 1]
Girl, they will try to tell you what to do
How to look, smile, act and move
All the rules I made for you to lose
But baby let me tell you something
[Verse 2]
Girl, for every tear the world makes you cry
Hold on to me
I am always on your side
Don’t be afraid to spread your wings and fly[Chorus]
Tell them
Raise your voice and say it loudly
Show them what it means to stand up proudly
Tell them
This is me and thanks to you I’m proud
Go on now, tell them
Raise your voice and say it loudly
Show them what it means to stand up proudly
Tell them
This is me and thanks to you I’m proud, I’m proud, I’m proud

[Verse 3]
Girl, they will try to tell you what to do
Have no fear, the power lies in you
Shine your light, go and break the rules


[Chorus]
Go on now, tell them
Raise your voice and say it loudly
Show them what it means to stand up proudly
Tell them
This is me and thanks to you I’m proud, I’m proud, I’m proud
Go on now, tell them
Raise your voice and say it loudly
Show them what it means to stand up proudly
Tell them
This is me and thanks to you I’m proud

[Outro]
Girl”
