The third participant of the Serbian final has been selected!
Bojana Stamenov and Danica Krstic, the two female singers have finally got the third singer, who will be competing against them in order to represent Serbia in Vienna. The third entrant of the Serbian national final is going to be Aleksa Jelic.
Vladimir Graic was looking for the best male vocalist in the country, and has decided that Aleksa is going to be the only male singer in this national selection. Aleksa said for ESC Serbia:
When I received this offer from Vladimir Graic, I was thinking about it for a little bit, and said “Yes”. This will be the third time I’m trying to represent Serbia in Eurovision – maybe my third time’s the charm?
Bojana Stamenov, Danica Krstic, and Aleksa Jelic will sing one song each, all composed by Vladimir Graic, and the audience will select the winner by televoting. The national selection is set for the 14th and the 15th of February, where on the 14th we will only hear short snippets of the three songs, and on the 15th they will be performed in full. The winner will become the eighth entrant for Serbia in the history of the Eurovision Song Contest.
