Can you believe it!? It’s now less than a week before some of Europe’s finest hit the stages of Moscow’s Indoor Olympic Sports Arena for the semi finals of the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest. And as the days count slowly down, auspOp ramps up it’s coverage of the entries that will be vying for glory in this year’s competition, now with two posts each day, one each for the remaining countries we’ve yet to cover. The grand final from Moscow is to be screened on delayed telecast on Australia’s SBS on Sunday May 17.
FYR MACEDONIA : Next Time – Neshto Shto Ke Ostane
Loosely translating into ‘Something That Will Remain’, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia will rock things up at Eurovision 2009, with two-piece rock act Next Time. And with their debut self-titled album now behind them, it seems nothing is going to stop the act from conquering the rest of Europe with their hit single, performed in Macedonian. Looks-wise, it seems they may have been studying early Bon Jovi for inspiration.
