After Serbian broadcaster RTS officially confirmed their participation in the Eurovision Song Contest 2015, lots of rumours and predictions started among Serbian media regarding who should represent this country. RTS decided to choose Vladimir Graić, who will compose three songs for the national final. So far we don’t know how will the singers be selected to participate in this modest show. Several Serbian newspapers and internet websites already picked their own editor’s choice.
Press informed that the first singer who expressed her wish to represent Serbia was Jelena Karleusa, charismatic, energetic but very controversial pop star and gay icon. In interview with Tracara.com Jelena said that Eurovision is like a “childish song” compare to her expensive concerts, performances or video clips. This singer would like to let the Serbian nation decide if she should represent Serbia in Eurovision 2015.
Another big star recommended by Press is Ceca, Serbian folk-diva, well known not only in Serbia but abroad as well. Newspapers editors would like to see Zeljko Joksimovic‘s comeback in Eurovision, as this singer and composer has lots of successful results in this contest so far. On another hand, it will be great to send Marija Serifovic – Eurovision winner from 2007. “Even if she doesn’t win again, the nation will forgive her” – claimed Press.
Another website Telegraf.rs has similar choices. Telegraf recommends as well Emina Jahovic (who finished 2nd in the Serbian national final in 2010), Vlado Georgiev, Natasa Bekvalac and pop singer Sasa Kovacevic, as well as winner of the first season of “Your Face Sounds Familiar” in Serbia – Ana Kokic. It is still uknown if any of those singers would like to represent Serbia in Vienna.
Acording to Tracara’s poll regarding Eurovision, more than 39% Internet voters would like to send Jelena Karleusa to Austria. She collected almost 3000 votes already. Ceca is 2nd with 21%, Emina Jahovic 3rd with 11%. 8% would like to send Zeljko Joksimovic again, while Marija Serifovic wasn’t included in that poll.
