You will remember Rambo Amadeus as he represented Montenegro in 2012 in Baku (who could forget?) His duet partner, Beti Đorđević was one the most popular singers in the 80s. Saška Janković was a backing vocalist on numerous occasions for Serbia.
Danijel Pavlović was previously a student at Star Academy. He composed his song, but the lyrics and arrangement were done by a well experienced team – Marina Tucaković, Marko Kon and Saša Milošević, who all wrote several Eurovision entries.
Igor Lazarević & Ivan Kurtić both participated in the first season of the popular regional show Pink’s Stars. Ivan won the contest and Igor was a finalist. Dušan Svilar is the runner up from Beosong 2013 and he also won a popular talent show in 2007. Pop-rock band Lana & Aldo were popular in the 90s. Lana worked with many regional stars and she composed over 400 songs in her career.
Sanja Ilić & Balkanika are a popular band that perform a mix of ethno and modern music. Danica Krstić, runner up from the 2015 national final, is supposed to sing their song. SevdahBABY performed at many festivals around the world and they have also previously participated in Beovizija in 2009. Maja Nikolić is no stranger to Beovizija, as she participated in the Serbian national final on numerous occasions. This time her song is composed by Vladimir Graić.
