SERBIA – It is revealed that Tijana Bogicevic was the fourth choice for Eurovision 2017 to represent Serbia in the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest. Only three points away, Serbia eliminated in the semi final. The singer is disappointed but it’s not the end of the world for her and the Serbian nation. music taste is subjective and some people probably didn’t like her song or performance, she stated. She is happy for the outcome of her team’s work on stage and for her performance.
2007 Eurovision winner for Serbia, Marija Serifovic said that unless RTS stops dealing with Eurovision as if it was an excursion, things will be like this. RTS immediately responded saying that they don’t look Eurovision in that way and they work hard for their project. RTS says there were difficulties with the organisers implementing their ideas something that many countries complaint about, as well. They are correct also saying that the Serbian entry was praised by the big majority of the press and media representatives in Kyiv.
In the meantime Tijana was the fourth choice for Kyiv. Aleksandra Radovic, Jelena Tomasevic και Ivana Peters were originally proposed to represent the country in Eurovision. Radovic’s excuse is that she had plans already immediately after Eurovision and couldn’t accept. Tomaseic claims that Eurovision is no more about music (we wonder then why Portugal won), and Peters says that just like last year when she composed the Serbian entry, a personal health problem didn’t allow her to travel by plane.
In the meantime Radovic doesn’t exclude a 2018 Eurovision participation as she states that: Why not? Everyone would like to represent their own country at Eurovision, but there must be worked on some conditions regarding the organisation. I couldn’t accept the offer this year because I was busy with my concerts.
