Sad news have reached us from Bosnia & Herzegovina: Despite having submitted a preliminary application, The Balkan country will not take part in the 60th Eurovision Song Contest after all. This was confirmed by the Bosnian broadcaster BHRT itself. The reasons stated were continuous financial problems and lack of sponsors.
Previously there have been rumours about potential Bosnian representatives: the well-known artists and former Eurovision entrants Hari Mata Hari (2006) and Regina (2009). Unfortunately we won’t be seeing any of them in Vienna after all.
Bosnia & Herzegovina’s last participation was in 2012. With Korake Ti Znam, Maya Sar managed to make it to the final and eventually finish 18th. The country debuted to the contest in 1993.
