15 year old Australia’s Got Talent favourite Bobby Andonov represented Macedonia at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2008, according to the Sunday Telegraph.
He was placed fifth with his song “Prati mi SMS” (Send Me an SMS).
He also appeared as ‘Simba’ in The Lion King production.
According to his Wikipedia listing, Andonov (real name Bobi) is widely seen as the “New Toše” and is well known for his performance of the song Life, performed by the late ethnic Macedonian star Toše Proeski at the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest.
But neither the Melbourne-born Andonov nor Australia’s Got Talent have broken any rules by his inclusion, as the show has no rules on professional engagements. Another of its contestants in dance troupe Justice Crew was a contender for So You Think You Can Dance Australia.
Andonov’s official website however doesn’t list his Junior Eurovision appearance on his Biography.
A number of songs by Andonov are also viewable at YouTube.
