Eurovision 2017 previews countdown: #11 SERBIA – Tijana Bogićević – “In Too Deep”

Just missing out on the top 10, it’s our penultimate ex-Yugoslav country in the countdown – Serbia. They are the most successful and consistent of the Balkan countries (winning in 2007) and rarely failing to qualify for the grand final.

Serbia first entered Eurovision as an independent nation in 2007 (having previously entered as part of Yugoslavia and then as Serbia and Montenegro) and were the first country to win Eurovision on their debut (excluding when Switzerland won in the first ever Eurovision). Serbia have followed a slightly similar pattern to Israel in that last year they entered a very uptempo, fun song, sung for the first time fully in English. Israel have stuck with all English but switched to a much more serious and reflective song. Serbia have done the same – all in English and a more serious tone – their song this year is about domestic abuse. Will it seem them reaching the top 10 again?
