Due to broadcast problems all comments tonight are kept short and might not fully represent what can be seen and heard on stage.

Tonight's hosts, MKRTV presenter Aleksandra Jovanovska and young actress Sanya Arsovska, welcome the audience and elaborate on the procedure of tonight's show: The results will be decided by a mixture of televoting and jury voting, each of them having a stake of 50% in the outcome. The televoting will start at the beginning of the first song and will finish 15 minutes after the end of the last song. Televoting is possible by calling in or sending an SMS. However, the voting will be confined to five times (including calling in and sending an SMS) per telephone number per song. Citizens from Australia, Canada, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey can also vote via SMS.
