🇲🇰 NORTH MACEDONIA

Song: “Kaži Mi, Kaži Mi Koj”

Performer:  Tamara Grujeska

North Macedonia is another nation known for its loyalty to Junior Eurovision over the years. It’s only missed out three times. Tamara Grujeska was actually the very first participant for this year’s Junior Eurovision to be decided. 

There may be more ballad entries than usual at this year’s JESC but this song stands out. First off, one of the rare times we have a ‘Balkan Ballad’ at Junior Eurovision. The lyrics of the song are very good. Another song about heroes! She sings of a world where there appears to be no more heroes so it’s up to us to be the heroes. She delivers in excellent vocal style. Not just in the skill, but the passion in her singing.

JESC Chances:

For North Macedonia to achieve its best-ever finish at Junior Eurovision, they just have to finish fourth or higher. Tamara has the potential to do it, but she also risks doing a common thing with North Macedonian entries at Junior Eurovision. That risk is a case of an entry from North Macedonia with a lot of buzz before the Contest, but doesn’t live up to the hype on Contest day. Remember the Green Forces from 2021? It’s not just the right staging but also her vocals need to be on to go far in the Contest. She has one of the most vocally-demanding songs of the Contest. Both the vocal skill and the passionate singing will have to be there that night. That, more than anything else, will be make-or-break for her Junior Eurovision result.

Lyrics “Kaži Mi, Kaži Mi Koj” Tamara Grujeska

Macedonian

Ti slušni me,
slušni me mene
I gušni me,
Nema veke vreme
Sega ovde sme,
Eden den
može ke ne snema

Kaži mi, kaži mi koj
Koj ni e kriv što nemame naši heroi
Kaži mi, kaži mi koj
Od gordosta srekata e považna
Kaži mi, kaži mi koj
Sekoja sekunda rastam i soznavam
Kaži mi, kaži mi koj
Me gali nežno dodeka jas zaspijam

Now, hold my hand tight
We gonna win this fight
No more fears, just light
We may be lost, but we will find a way
Let’s shine away

Kaži mi, kaži mi koj
Koj ni e kriv što nemame naši heroi
Kaži mi, kaži mi koj
Od gordosta srekata e považna
Kaži mi, kaži mi koj
Sekoja sekunda rastam i soznavam
Kaži mi, kaži mi koj
Me gali nežno dodeka jas zaspijam

English

Listen, listen to me
And hug me
There is no more time
We are here now
One day We might be gone

Tell me, tell me who
Who’s at fault we don’t have any heroes
Tell me, tell me who
Happiness is more important than pride
Tell me, tell me who
Every second I grow and learn
Tell me, tell me who
Cuddles me gently to sleep

Now, hold my hand tight
We gonna win this fight
No more fears, just light
We may be lost, but we will find a way
Let’s shine away

Tell me, tell me who
Who’s at fault we don’t have any heroes
Tell me, tell me who
Happiness is more important than pride
Tell me, tell me who
Every second I grow and learn
Tell me, tell me who cuddles me gently to sleep
