Macedonian broadcaster MKRTV has today confirmed that they have received 150 songs for its national final, which is due to be held on 24th February 2007 in Skopje. 15 music acts are going to present their songs from which the winner will be chosen by televoting.
For the past few weeks, rumours have been flying over who would enter the Macedonian selection process, with many claiming that Karolina Gočeva, the Macedonian representative from 2002, willing to give it another try. Also in the frame are Tijana Dapčević, Tamara Todevska, Kaliopi, Aleksandra Pileva, and 2004 entrant Toše Proeski.
It is as yet unknown when MKRTV will announce the selected songs for Skopje Fest 2007, but you can be sure that esctoday.com will there and ready when they do!
Karolina finished 19th in Tallinn with Od nas zavisi while Toše Proeski achieved a 14th position in the final round in Istanbul presenting his song Life. Due to Elena Risteska's 12th place in Athens, FYR Macedonia will have to compete in the semi final once again in Helsinki - but they have a good track record in the semi final, as they've qualified all three times so far!
