North Macedonia: Vasil's song for Eurovision 2020 released – "You"

Vasil Garvanliev will represent North Macedonia with his song "You". Listen to it here

Back in January Macedonian broadcaster MRTannounced that Vasil Garvanliev would represent North Macedonia at Eurovision 2020 in Rotterdam. This decision had been made after an internal selection.

The last few days Vasil has been teasing his song You, telling his Instagram followers:

– YOU is an invitation for everyone to Connect, Open Up, Dance, and Celebrate the Moment. The title itself addresses another person, but also the person where it all begins - YOU, yourself, says Vasil.

– We’ve all been there. The moment when that unexplainable thing happens and sensations take over you. The choice is yours: let go, put your dancing shoes on, celebrate, and just dance.

Now Vasil's You has finally been released:

North Macedonia 2020: Vasil – "You"

You is written by the two sisters Nevena and Kalina Neskoska as well as by Alice Schroeder. It is composed by Nevena Neskoska, Darko Dimitrov and Lazar Cvetkovski.


Vasil Garvanliev, 35, was born and raised in North Macedonia.

His career in the music industry started early: He has been performing since the age of 7.

He started as a child pop star in North Macedonia, continued as a soloist for the Children's Choir in Chiacago and went on to become a successful opera singer. Up until today he has been the leading baritone singer in over 50 opera productions.

After having lived in Milano, Toronto, Chicago and London he returned to his home country North Macedonia in 2018. Here he has been really successful: his first solo concert sold out and his singles "Gerdan" (Necklace), “Patuvam"(Travelling) and "Mojata Ulica" (My Street) enjoyed great popularity.

Vasil got his first taste of Eurovision as early as 2007, when he was one of the finalists in the Macedonian national selection with his song "Pomogni mi". However, Karolina won and represented North Macedonia with her song "Mojot svet".

In 2019 Vasil had his first appearance on the Eurovision stage as one of Tamara Todevska's (North Macedonia) backings.
