On the 18 March 2020, it was officially announced that the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 had been cancelled, which means all these amazing songs won’t get their chance to shine on the Eurovision stage and some acts may not even get the chance to represent their country. North Macedonia had chosen Vasil via internal selection on 15 January 2020 and later revealed his song “YOU” on 8 March 2020. He hasn’t been confirmed as their act for 2021. As we await the 2021 contest, we will make sure that every song in the cancelled contest gets its time to shine, here on CelebMix.
The song has been written by Nevena Neskoska, Kalina Neskoska, and Alice Schroeder. It’s an emotional-filled pop track that could’ve done moderately well during the contest if it was still going ahead. The music video is interesting and engaging, capturing the audience’s interest from the first few seconds. We wonder if his choreographed number and his love interest would’ve appeared on the Eurovision stage with him.
Watch Vasil’s Music Video For What Would’ve Been His Eurovision 2020 Song “YOU” Here:
North Macedonia did incredible last year topping the jury vote and placing seventh overall with 305 points, they were represented by Tamara Todevska with the song “Proud”. It is the best they have ever done since they debuted in 1996, and ended their six years of non-qualification to the Grand Final. We reckon Vasil would’ve continued their Grand Final qualification, with his song “YOU”, but now we’ll never know. We hope they invite him to be their act for next year since they did choose him via internal selection.
Eurovision 2020 may be cancelled but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate it this year, it doesn’t mean we can’t listen to the songs, and it doesn’t mean we forget about the artists either.
