RTS reports that Tijana Dapčević will replace Stefan Zdravković in Serbia’s national selection Pesma za Evroviziju ’22 and will compete with the composition by Leontina Vukomanović.
The song was originally set to be performed by Stefan Zdravković (Princ od Vranje) and held the name “Ljubi svoga čoveka”. The lyrics of the song have been re-written to fit Tijana and the song is now titled “Ljubi, ljubi doveka”.
Tijana is of course known to many Eurovision fans after she represented North Macedonia at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2014. She failed to qualify to the final with the song “To The Sky“. Her sister is Tamara Todevska, who represented North Macedonia in 2008 and 2019.
RTS revealed the 36 finalists of Pesma za Evroviziju ’22 a week ago. Next to Tijana, one more former Eurovision representative will compete in this year’s selection, as Sara Jo, who competed in 2013 as part of Moje 3, will take part with “Muškarčina (Zabranjeno voće)”.
