FYR Macedonia: Tijana Dapčević

It’s fourth time lucky for Tijana Dapčević, who has been trying to compete in Eurovision since 1996. She originally planned to sing an upbeat zinger called Victory in Macedonian, with her sister Tamara (who competed in 2008 for Macedonia but didn’t make it to the final) as one of her backing vocalists, but now it’s all about To The Sky (see the next tab over). Tijana is big in the Balkans, too.

Here’s a video of one of her previous hits: she is Eurovision, right?

How to select your hot Eurovision hit when you’ve got over 50 to choose from? Apparently with not a lot of difficulty, according to Tijana.

I didn’t like any of them, besides those three that I got from Darko [Dimitrov]. We chose the most rhythmic one. And I believe in this song a lot. I feel very confident when I sing it,” she told Eurovision.tv.

There are both English and Macedonian-language versions (see below for both) of Tamu Kaj Sto Pripagam/To The Sky, and Tijana seems to have chosen the English one, although both are equally catchy. There’s no music video yet, but there’s potential for a very fun performance for this upbeat track, instead of the wobbling around and fist-pumping she’s managed so far. Either way, it may not take as much vocal talent as Euphoria, but Tijana’s onto something that’ll get people moving in their seats. To the final!

To The Sky

I’ve got a feeling that I wanna go loud
Make my move and let it all get out
I’ve got a feeling that I wanna go wild
Take my hand baby I got all night

Take me now, you know I want you
Hold me now, cause I can’t stop it
Take me up, where we can do this
To the stars tonight

Where do we go now
To the sky, you and I, beautiful
Where do we go now
To the stars, shine so bright and through the sky
Where do we go now?

I’ve got the feeling that I need you all time
You make me free and that’s why youre all mine
I’ve got the feeling that we both could shine
Held together by the hand of life

Take me now, you know I want you
Hold me now, cause you can’t stop it
Take me up, where we can do this
To the stars tonight

Where do we go now
To the sky, you and I, beautiful
Where do we go now
To the stars, shine so bright and through the sky

Now i don’t wanna live without you for another day
And if I’ve said it twice it means that you will have to stay.
You better hold me, dance me, sway like this forever,
Take me dancing tonight

Take me now, you know I want you
Hold me now, cause I can’t stop it now

Where do we go now
To the sky, you and I, beautiful
Where do we go now
To the stars, shine so bright and through the sky
Where do we go now
To the stars, shine so bright and through the sky
Where do we go now?
