Serbia 2018: Beovizija show for the Serbian entry
Olivera Kovacevic, music editor at Serbia’s National broadcaster RTS, announced that Beovizija will come back in 2018. Beovizija is a festival in Serbia that was used to choose the country’s representative for Eurovision. The show was held since 2003 until 2009 but for Eurovision was used only for 3 years (2007- 2009).
The song submission period is still in progress and it will remain opened until the 20th of October. If we receive over 30 entries, a professional jury will narrow them down to 10. We plan to stage a national final with these 10 acts in February in order to let the public and the jury decide Serbia’s 2018 Eurovision representative.
The 7 winners of the Festival so far are:
|2003||Toše Proeski||“Čija si”|
|2006||Flamingosi featuring Louis||“Ludi letnji ples”|
|2009||Marko Kon & Milan Nikolić||“Cipela”|
In 2007, Serbia debuted in the contest and in Lisbon the country will count its 11th appearance. In 2007, Serbia won the competition with the song Molitva sung by Marija Šerifović.
