Skopje, FYR Macedonia -

One more act has been announced before the end of the year. MKRTV, the broadcaster from FYR Macedonia, has announced that two of their most popular artists will join forces to represent them at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö: the Queen of Gypsy music Esma Redzepova-Teodosievska and the popstar Vlatko Lozanoski-Lozano!

The 2013 Eurovision Song Contest has already some participant artists confirmed before 2012 comes to an end. The latest country to join this trend is FYR Macedonia; their broadcaster has just announced that they give the honour to represent them in Malmö to two renowned names in their country: Esma Redzepova-Teodosievska and Vlatko Lozanoski-Lozano.

Esma, the Queen of Gypsy music

Esma has been artistically involved for decades, she is well-known and recognized throughout the world. Her unique and virtuous vocals have become a synonym of clear and precise singing, confirmed by her numerous solo albums, concerts for big audiences and multiple collaborations. Esma has also devoted her life to humanitarian and philanthropy projects, being eligible twice for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Vlatko, the pop star

Vlatko Lozano has been active on the music scene for almost five years. However, in this short period with his rich voice and talent, he has managed to draw the attention of the public in his country. He is favoured mainly by the younger generation in the Balkan area. His voice is about to become a recognizable brand for FYR Macedonia in the world.

A song for Malmö

MKRTV trusts that this unusual duet of experience and youth will bring positive results. They will try to find now the perfect composition for the tandem by ordering songs to several well-known composers. The winning piece will also be the result of an internal choice.

The official presentation of FYR Macedonia's entry for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö will be held in Studio 3 of MKRTV at the end of February.

    Croats have sent one of their best singers with a song that wasn't that good, last year, and the result was - no final. I suppose that making a good song for Esma and Vlatko won't be an easy job. report to the moderator

    Interesting duet. Duets are quite successful at Eurovision. Paula Seling & Ovi – Playing with Fire (Romania), placed 3rd at Eurovision 2010, its best placing to date; while Chanée and N'evergreen - In a Moment like this (Denmark) placed 4th at Eurovision 2010, its best placing since wining in 2000. A really promising Eurovision entry. report to the moderator
