The artists: Lara feat. Jovan and Irina

Lara, Irina and Jovan were selected to represent North Macedonia at an MRT studio through an open audition. Initially, it was just going to be the duo of Lara and Irina representing North Macedonia but Jovan was also announced to be joining them on stage.

Lara Trpcheska was born in Skopje and is a student at the Pianoforte Music School. At 5-years-old she performed at Zlatno Slavejče; North Macedonia’s most established children’s music contest, famed for launching the careers of many young artists. After this she went on to success in the Tartini international singing contest (finishing as runner-up), before winning Polyhymnia music contest held in Skopje in 2018.

Irina Davidovska was also born in Skopje. She studies at OOU Partenija Zografski, where she began as a member of the Piccolo children’s choir. It was during her time here that she performed with the Macedonian Philharmonic Orchestra.

The entry: 'Životot e pred mene'

Their entry 'Životot e pred mene' translates to 'My Life Ahead Of Me'. The song will be performed in both Macedonian and English languages.

Comments from the Aussievision team

It's a kids contest, we shouldn't be limited by the genres of pop and ballad. I love the slight swing vibes 'Zivotot e pred mene' gives. The rap part may not be to everybody's taste, but it gives the song a certain charm that it needs to stand out. ~ Colleen

Such a cute and positive song, felt very catchy and cute. The music video production quality

was flawless. Showed multiple cute storylines between the performers and managed to still

portray that catchy ear worm of a song. I would love this to be the victor of Junior Eurovision 2022. ~ Josh
