About Pesma za Evroviziju 2024
After confirming its participation in July, we know that RTS will be using PZE for the third year in a row to select their Eurovision representative. As of the time of writing, there is no currently confirmed date for the national final. However, we do have an idea of what the national final will look like. Following traditional Eurovision rules, the winner of PZE 2024 will be decided by a combination of 50% jury votes and 50% televote. Not much is currently known about a potential lineup. However, eurofans will be pleased to know that fan favourite Filip Baloš reportedly has a song to submit for PZE 2024.
Serbia’s Eurovision History
In 2007, Serbia made its debut as an independent country, having previously participated as part of Yugoslavia and Serbia & Montenegro. There, they were represented by Marija Šerifović with “Molitva”, which managed to win the competition. Since their debut, Serbia has participated 15 times (12 of which, where they qualified for the Grand Final).
Luke Black represented Serbia at Eurovision 2023 in Liverpool with his song “Samo mi se spava”. At this year’s competition, Serbia managed to qualify for the Grand Final, where they placed 24th. At the close of voting, he received 30 points – 14 coming from the jury and 16 from the televote.
