Our second interview of the year is with Jana Mirkovic, who will be Montenegro’s 2nd representative in the contest with her song ‘Oluja’. Here it is!
Hi Jana, congratulations on being selected to represent Montenegro in Sofia. How do you feel about the upcoming contest?
Hi! Thank you so much! I feel great and very thankful for this opportunity RTCG gave me. This is a huge project and lot of work to do. I am very excited and can’t wait to arrive in Sofia and meet all the people from different countries.
How did you get selected for JESC, whose idea was it?
RTCG invited me and asked if I want to represent Montenegro in JESC. I am into singing since a young age and I attended dancing and ballet school and did some TV shows for children’s programs. So people from here know me and my desire to be on the stage. This is second time for Montenegro to participate in JESC and I hope not the last. JESC is great opportunity for new generations to send a message and unite through music.

Ivana Petkovska and Magdalena Aleksovska – Pletenka – Braid of Love
како небо сино, како море сино
зрак од сонце злато, гали птици јато
една плетенка, плетенка.
ноќта во ден се плете
едно да бидат двете
исток и запад…север…југ.

Листья над землёй кружат…
Кто теперь вернёт их назад?
Словно звёзды в небесах –
Слёзы на глазах!..
Այսօր արթնացել եմ
Ու ես նորից հասկացել եմ
Մեծ սիրտ է աշխարհը
Ասա ինձ ինչ կա այնտեղ
(Սեր կա սիրտ կա ու կյանքը)
Ճիշտ է, եթե կա սեր
Կյանքը միշտ էլ ուրախ երաժիշտ է
Քո սրտի մեջ նվագող
Լա-լա-լա-լա-լա լավ է , երբ քո շուրջը
Սերն է հենց պտտվում
Australia – Bella Paige – My Girls
My best friend’s trying
Like she’s never tried before
Her dreams keep fading
I know she has wings to soar
Well I’ve been where you are
And lost my heart now
But when you’re down and out
We’ll lift you up
We’re happy to kick off our 2015 interviews with the two cheerful girls from Macedonia – Magdalena & Ivana!
Hello Magdalena & Ivana, well done on being selected to represent Macedonia in Sofia. How do you feel about the upcoming contest?
M – I feel excited, a lot. It’s going to be a big opportunity for me and it’s going to be the biggest contest I’ve ever been a part of. So it’s a really big deal for me. But anyways were going to do our best in Sofia.
I – I am feeling so exited and happy. I can’t believe that we have just 1 month till the big eurovision scene. We are working so hard for 21st of November.
Gabriela Yordanova will now be joined by second-place winner from their national final, Ivan Stoyanov, in representing Bulgaria in this year’s Junior Eurovision. The song is called Цветът на надеждата, or ‘Colours of Hope’, and can be described as an anthemic ballad. Listen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9Gtu6w1A9Q
Armenian superstar MIKA released his retro-styled rock entry for Junior Eurovision ‘Love’. It’s a high quality video clip and very different from what any of us were expecting. Hear it at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFlT2Y9YhHY
The Macedonian entry was released. Ivana Petkovska and Magdalena Aleksovska sing ‘Pletenka‘, a song that harks back to the old style JESCs of 2003-2005. Much like Josie in 2014, they must be given praise for writing the song themselves – Magadlena created the music while Ivana wrote the lyrics.
