Aleksandar Belov will get his chance to represent Macedonia at Skopje Fest scheduled for 19, 20, and 21 of February where he will sing “Zastani, solzi izbrisi”.
Nina Petković, from Montenegro, will not be competing for Eurovision because Andrea Demirović was chosen to represent the country. Same goes for Adnan Babajić, winner of Operacija Trijumf 2008, considering that a rock band Regina will be singing for Bosnia in Moscow.
