From Beovizija to Eurovision
Despite being immensely popular in the Balkan region, the format was only used to determine Serbia’s Eurovision representative three times. The most memorable moment for Serbia in the contest has to be Marija’s 2007 winning entry “Molitva”.
Gaining momentum after Serbia’s Eurovision win, Beovizija was on the radar in the Eurovision fandom. The sixth winner of the festival was the immensely popular Jelena Tomasevic and her ethnic ballad “Oro“.
Unfortunately, the last edition of Beovizija resulted with a non qualification at Eurovision. Despite delivering a vivid performance, Marko Kon did not manage to take Serbia to the finals with his entry “Cipela“.
