Likely Jury Appeal
Juries have recognised exceptional vocals before with the likes of Evelina Sašenko and Eugent Bushpepa
The newly renamed North Macedonia has presented Tamara Todevska’s Proud for Eurovision 2019.
The video to Proud is attempting to shoehorn itself into the diversity and empowerment movement, which seems to be the stock PR blurb for most of this year’s artists.
This ballad has sort of passed people by and was instantly discounted by the market, yet what we have here is a rousing, vocal-led song capable of causing an upset in semi-final 2. It takes a while to get going, but that ending does resonate.
Juries have recognised exceptional vocals before with the likes of Evelina Sašenko and Eugent Bushpepa, to name just two, both qualifying due to support from juries. Tamara is capable of attracting the same level of interest provided the delegation styles the performance sympathetically. Definitely one to watch!
