Just two more Eurovision contestants to look at in our countdown to the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest in Norway. The glitz and the glamour all kicks off with the first semi-final this Tuesday night in Oslo, when 17 countries compete to find out who’ll make it through to the grand final this Saturday night. Of course, they’ll also be competing against the 17 countries in the second semi-final on Thursday night.
Macedonia will take part in the first semi-final on Tuesday night.
FYR MACEDONIA : Gjoko Taneski – Jas Ja Imam Silata
33 year old Gjoko Taneski will be Macedonia’s entry to the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest, performing the track ‘Jas Ja Imam Silata’ (‘I Have The Strength’ in English). Gjoko has experienced chart success in his homeland and last year released his second album ‘Nikogas Dosta’. ‘Jas Ja Imam Silata’ is a solid pop/rock song that showcases Gjoko’s vocals beautifully. He’s sticking to his strengths. Whether it’s enough to get the former Yugoslav republic through remains to be seen.
