Serbia’s national broadcaster announced today that a total of 75 acts sent their songs in for Beovizija 2018, which is once again going to select Serbia’s Eurovision entry, after a break of eight years.
The period of submitting entries for Beovizija 2018 ended on the 10th of December, and the music department of RTS has already opened all of the envelopes, and listened through all of the submitted entries. Now their team is going to start selecting the best ones, which will proceed to the televised show. The rules of the competition stated that the songs must be in one of the official languages in the Republic of Serbia, but this doesn’t mean that the winning song can’t be translated into English, or any other language for that matter.
The exact dates, the full format of Beovizija 2018, as well as the names of all of the participants are yet to be announced.
As a reminder, the last time Beovizija was held was back in 2009, when Marko Kon and Milan Nikolic won with their song “Cipela”, and went on to represent Serbia in Eurovision in Moscow. This was also the first time that Serbia failed to qualify for the Grand Final. Serbia’s best result came at their debut in 2007, when Marija Serifovic won the Contest with her song “Molitva”.
