Macedonian national broadcaster will once again use Skopje Fest in order to select the entrant for Macedonia in the Eurovision Song Contest. One of the participants previously announced is now being replaced, which means that another artist is going to sing in Skopje Fest in November.
Saso Gigov-Gis has withdrawn from the competition, due to not knowing that the winner would be taking part in Eurovision, which he wouldn’t want to do in case of winning Skopje Fest. The song he was supposed to sing, “Bluz”, will now be sung by Nina Janeva. Nina was the backing vocalist of Esma & Vlatko in Eurovision 2013 in Malmo.
The final line-up is now as follows:
- Risto Samardziev & Vlatko Ilievski – Sever-jug
- Lena Zatkoska – Alo
- Aleksandra Janeva – Vo tvojot svet
- Nade Talevska – Znam
- Sanja Gjosevska – Sakam da letam
- Viktoria Loba – Mi fali nekoj kako tebe
- Goran Naumovski & Sanja Kerkez – Mig bez tebe
- Lidija Kocovska & Marjan Stojanovski – Sonce bez oblaci
- Vera Jankovik – Sakam da letam
- Evgenija Cavcalova – Da ne te sakam
- Danijel Kajmakoski – Sovrsena bura
- Tamara Todevska – Brod sto tone
- Aleksandar Tarabunov – Marija
- Dimitar Andonovski – Se sto vetiv
- Verica Pandilovska – Samo za tebe
- Tanja Tsarovska – Pekolno mi nedostasuvas
- Mijata – Dlaboko vo sebe

Skopje Fest will take place in Metropolis Arena in Skopje on the 12th of November, and the winner will be chosen by a 50-50% mix of televoting, and votes of an international jury.
