The EBU and Macedonian Radio Television (MRT) are pleased to announce that MRT will now participate in the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest. This follows the lifting of sanctions imposed for non-payment of debt. MRT will be participating in the Eurovision Song Contest for the 18th time.

Last week it was announced that 42 countries will participate in the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest. Today, we are pleased to announce that F.Y.R. Macedonia will join the party and complete the full line up of 43 participating countries at the contest.

This means that the contest in Lisbon will equal the record amount of countries that participated in Belgrade in 2008 and Dusseldorf in 2011. And the best news is…You can be a part of it!
