Првата изјава по објавувањето на информацијата дека „Ај кју“ ќе ја претставуваат Република Македонија на Евровизија ексклузивно за ИНФЕ ја дава фронтменот и автор Бојан Трајковски:
-Јас само пратив песна и не размислував на тоа и откако ја пратив престанав да ја слушам. Кога ни јавија дека ние сме одбрани, ни требаа неколку минути да сфатам дека е вистина, и дека таа информација се однесува за нас. Веднаш ја споделив веста со остнатите членови од бендот, со кои токму во тој момент бевме во студио нешто снимавме, и бевме пресреќки. Баш во тој момент бевме заедно снимавме нешто,а од низата музички работи ова ни е како следен чекор напред и исчекор. Песната се вика Lost and found, тоа е оригиналната верзија на англиски јазик. Автор сум јас , а аранжманот е на Дарко Димитров .
Бојан од „Ај кју“ вели дека сега ќе се фокусираат чекор по чекор да се финализираат подготoвките, а потоа заедно со евровискиот тим на Мртв заедно ќе дејствуваат за подобри подготовки и претставување на Евровизијата 2018, во мај во Лисабон.
The first statement after publishing the information that Eye Cue will represent Republic of Macedonia at the Eurovision exclusive for INFE is given by the frontman and author Bojan Trajkovski:
-I just sent a song and I did not think about it, and after I sent it I even stopped listening the song. When they call and told us that we were choose, it took us a few minutes for me to realize that is truth and that information is about us. I immediately shared the news with the rest of the members of the band, with which at that moment we were in the studio recording something. Just at that moment we were recording together something,and this is just a new step in our musical works. The song is called Lost and found, it’s the original version of English. I am the author, and the arrangement is on Darko Dimitrov.
Bojan says now they will focus on step by step to finalize the preparations, and then together with theeurovision team of MRTV they will work together for better preparation and presentation.
