Serbia at the Eurovision Song Contest
Serbia debuted as an independent nation at 2007 with “Molitva” by Marija Šerifović which won the competition. In 2008, Serbia had the honor of hosting the competition in Belgrade.
Since their debut, Serbia has participated eleven times. Out of their eleven participations, they have managed to make the final eight times. Despite narrowly missing out on a place in the final in 2017, the Balkan nation has qualified for the past two contests.
In 2019, Serbia selected Nevena Božović to represent Serbia in Tel Aviv, with her song ‘Kruna‘. This was Nevena’s third participation at a Eurovision event. She has previously participated in Junior Eurovision in 2007 and in Eurovision in 2013 with Moje 3. Overall, she managed to finish 18th, receiving 35 Points from the Jury Vote and 54 Points from the Public Vote.
