North Macedonia gets on stage and is the penultimate act to rehearse today. 11 years after her Eurovision participation together with Rade Vrchakovski and Adrian Gaxha, Tamara Todevska is back to the Eurovision stage and is decided to bring her nation back to the final, for the first time after 2012. She will perform a song-anthem to women, entitled Proud.

Tamara is wearing a striking sea-green gown for her performance in Tel Aviv. Her dress has a modern, high-cut neckline, and long sleeve, bit of which are black and opaque. The bodice and skirt of the dress are made of sea-green satin, and there is modern black detailing on the bust of the dress, and a black belt effect, to flatter Tamara’s figure.
