National final

The 2005 Macedonian national final was held on 19 February 2005 in Skopje and featured two artists: Aleksandra Pileva and Martin Vucic. During the first phase of the selection process both of them were selected to participate in the final by a jury of sixteen music professionals. The two performed four songs each - one song was of their own choosing, the other three were from an open competition to submit songs for the final. Aleksandra Pileva was the definite winner of the televote with 6 times the votes that Martin Vucic gained, however the jury and studio audience awarded full points to Martin crowning him the winner with the song "Ti Si Son". At Eurovision he performed the song in English. The song is written by Branka Kostic and composed by Dragan Vucic.

Martin was born on 7 August 1982 in Skopje, Republic of Macedonia. He became a drummer and composer for the group ‘Arija’ and went on to enter the Music Academy as an extremely popular percussionist. Martin is currently a senior at the Music Academy in Skopje. He enjoys success in Macedonia and in the Balkan region with participations and festivals such as OhridFest, Budva, and Beovizija.
