Last night, Serbia held the semi final of its national selection, Beosong, where fifteen artists battled it out for a ticket to the final which will take place tonight at 21.00 CET. Only five acts proceeded based on the televote. Recently discovered singers, who gained fame through reality singing shows, ranked well with voters with four out of the five finalists all appearing in reality contests over the past few years.
The group Moje tri, made up of Mirna Radulović, Sara Jovanović and Nevena Božović (JESC 2007) were the first to perform and make it to the final with an up-tempo song on a night dominated by big ballads. Saška Janković, a recent contestant of “The Voice” also made it through, while teen girl group “Sky’s” were the surprise qualifiers. Dušan Svilar proceeded to the final with the only ethno song of the evening.
The most experienced of the lot, Marija Mihajlović, with a long career behind her, also qualified. Viewers had the opportunity to listen to the songs for the first time tonight as they have been kept well away from the public.
