Over the past two evenings, Serbia have hosted the two semi finals of their 2019 Eurovision national selection show 'Beovizija'. 24 acts participated and now that number has been cut in half ahead of the final set to take place at 21.00 CET on Sunday 3rd February. On Sunday we will discover which participant will win the national selection and go on to represent Serbia in Tel Aviv at the 64th Eurovision Song Contest. Find out the running order below.
After the qualifiers were announced, the hosts then drew allocation balls out of a pot - pairing each number drawn with the qualifier in the order that they were confirmed as a finalist. The results of the random draw are:
1. Saška Janks - "Da li čuješ moj glas"
2. Majdan - "Budim te"
3. Sofija Perić - "Aritmija"
4. Dženan Lončarević - "Nema suza"
5. Ivana Vladović & Wonder Strings - "Moja bol"
6. Jana Šušteršić - "Viktorija"
7. Lord - "Radnički sin"
8. Nevena Božović - "Kruna"
9. Ana Popović - "Lutaš"
10. Ivan Kurtić - "Bela"
11. Nataša & Una - "Samo bez straha"
12. Aleksandra Sekulić - "Tugo"
Last years winners Sanja Ilic & Balkanika won with their ethno-ballad 'Nova deca' after performing from 6th position out of the 17 finalists so we definitely cannot say it is a done deal based on the draw alone. One of the favourites to win, Saška Janks is performing first whereas other favourites Ivana Vladović & Wonder Strings are on fifth. Current favourite with bookmakers is also on early - Dženan Lončarević drew fourth.
The winner will be decided with a 50/50 jury & televote - with the jury favourite being awarded 12 points, second favourite securing 10 points down Eurovision-style to their tenth favourite getting 1 point. The same format will be applied to the results of the televoting. The winner will be the act with the most combined points.
Let us know who YOU want to win and go on to represent Serbia at Eurovision 2019 in May.
