SERBIA – Unlike the ethnic song of Greece, the ethnic song off Serbia is maybe too much for the audience. The vocals performance is great but this sever standing still appearance not the group with no story telling cannot appeal (at least to me)
ESCKAZ.COM: Vocally it sounds flawless, apart from some timing issues in the first run but that may have been a sound issue as is not unusual today, so expecting to have that improved in further rounds.
ESCBUBBLE.COM: This is a good quality song with good vocals. I think this will qualify, but I don’t think it’ll go far in the final as I think there’s better songs out there.
ESCXTRA.COM: All of the Serbian performers are sounding great, Danica sounds either more restrained with her vocals today… or the sound levels may have been altered. Nevertheless, this still sounds very effective.
EUROVOIX.COM: All vocalists have remained strong for all three takes. This is probably the most on point and focused delegation of the day so far.

SERBIA – Serbian broadcaster RTS has announced that the country will return to a national final format with the Beovizija selection show to resume after 9 years. Artists currently have until October 20 to submit their entries, after which an expert panel will shortlist ten songs which will compete at Beovizija in February. A mixed jury and public televote will then decide Serbia’s entry for the Eurovision Song Contest. The long-running Beovizija Festival was used as the country’s national selection process until 2009, after which RTS had internally selected Serbia’s representative.
PORTUGAL – Sanja Vučić is best known for being the lead vocalist of the Serbian band ZAA and represented Serbia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 with the song “Goodbye”. We met her at Setúbal’s Eurovision Live Concert 2017 event and we had a small chat with her. We remind you are live in Portugal and covering the event so stay tuned for more.

UKRAINE – One of the three hosts of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, Oleksandr Skichko, has joined the ensemble of Ukraine’s Dancing with the Stars. Oleksandr has been partnered up with dancing professional Anna Palamarchuk and the two performed to “I Got You (Feeling Good)” in the first show.
They received 20 points from the judges and managed to progress to the next show, avoiding elimination.
The representative of the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest, Tina Karol, was the guest performer on the first show of the new season of Dancing with the Stars, where she sang two songs from her new album entitled “Интонации” (Intonation).
SERBIA – She represented Serbia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 with the song “In Too Deep” but failed to qualify to the final. Bogićević was previously a backing vocalist for Nina at the Eurovision Song Contest 2011. She also competed to represent Serbia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2009 through Beovizija 2009, but did not advance past the semi-final. Bogićević first achieved major recognition in Serbia in 2013, after the release of her single “Čudo”. The following year she released a duet with Aleksa Jelić, “Još jednom”. Bogićević currently resides in the United States. She married Mark Robertson, the lead singer of the band Queen Of Hearts, in 2015.
Through Facebook, the amazing Tijana spoke about the video mainly thanking her team for all the great work they achieved by saying that a day before the video filming they didn’t even have a location and a concrete plan for the video. Thanking all of her team, namely one by one, Tijana sounds proud of her latest achievement and while we watch the video we are proud for her, too. She is an amazing person as we met her last May in Kyiv and despite our four video interview efforts the microphone refused to work ONLY to her. But in the end we grabbed a smartphone and we did it. She is a fighter and she proves it once again, as she never moans about potential technical problems and we can vow for it!
SERBIA – Serbian national broadcaster seems to go after a national selection for the 2018 representative. Aiming to the right formula for Eurovision, RTS seems to have a new idea for what a national selection should be.
Highlights of the idea is that anyone can anonymously submit their interest and song proposal. The songs should be in Serbian or any official languages of Serbia. The winner of the national selection will be determined by a panel of expert jury. There will be two hopefuls selected by the expert jury to the national final. Submissions are open from now until October 20th.
