Daniel Kajmakoski (31) is the fresh winner of Skopje Fest and the Macedonian entrant for the Eurovision song contest 2015 in Vienna. His winning song is Lisja esenski, here's the studio version. There is a possibility the song will be changed before March 2015, but this blogger ctually likes it a lot so I hope they will stick with it.
He's also the winner of the first X Factor Adria where his mentor was none other than Zeljko Joksimovic, they also recorded a duet together Skopje-Beograd. Another Eurovision connection is he wrote to Karolina Goceva Vis ne se vrakas in 2010 that was a big hit.
For him it's a return to Vienna as that's where he grew up after moving there when six year's old. He even participated in the Austrian talent show Starmania seasson two in 2003 where he reached the top-8. (The next season was won by Nadine Beiler and runner up being certain Tom Neuwirth aka Conchita Wurst! Even Eric Papilaya was in it). His career didn't quite get started back then and he already gave up the idea of becoming a singer and wrote songs to others instead as a hobby. Then his friend sent his application to X Factor and the rest is history..... Vienna next!
