Yesterday on October 31st a French artist who performed for Monaco that had a birthday. However, today there are three Eurovision stars that celebrate their birthday. The birthday boy performed with his brother. The birthday girls also have more in common then their birthday they are both from the same country. As well as their country selected them both represent their country at Eurovision. Nuno Duarte and the Serbian singers, Tijana Bogićević and Jelena Tomašević have a birthday today.

Nuno Duarte, 43

After doing great at the public televotes in Portugal, Nuno Duarte or Jel as he is know as and his brother Vasco, won the national selection in 2011 as the group Homens Da Luta. That was their second try at Eurovision, because they had to withdraw their 2010 entry “Luta assim não dá” from the national selection. Since it had already been performed before. Their 2011 entry “A luta é alegria” was performed in  Düsseldorf. However their interesting signs approach did not capture enough votes to go to the final.

Tijana Bogićević, 36

Serbia picked Tijana to perform at Eurovision in Kyiv in 2017. Therefore she sang “In Too Deep” at the second semi final.  This time she did not sing at the final,  but she did sing at a final in 2011, because she was a back up singer for Nina and her song “Caroban“.

To add a bit more, Tijana continues to perform music and released a new song soon after the contest.

Jelena Tomašević, 34

After by Marija Šerifović won the contest in 2007, Serbia picked Jelena to perform in Belgrade the following year. “Oro” is the name of her entry and is a strong power ballad. Jelena did good because the song got 160 point which means she finished 6th out of 25 acts.

We all here at escXtra would like to wish the Serbian artist a special happy birthday!
