Eye Cue will represent Macedonia with the song Lost and Found at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018. The band comprises of the two vocalists Bojan Trajkovski and Marija Ivanovska, and the drummer Ivo Mitkovski. Marija has said about their Eurovision entry:
When I first heard the song, Bojan was playing it on the piano and I instantly liked it, I felt the emotion right away. It took only 20 seconds to fall in love with this melody, I hope the audience will react the same way as I did. I am really excited that I will perform this song on the Eurovision stage and will have a chance to share my emotions with everyone.
FYR Macedonia will compete in the second half of the first semi-final on Tuesday 8 May 2018.
