The silence has been broken, and the Serbian national broadcaster (RTS) has finally decided to reveal the plans when it comes to selection the Serbian act for Turin.

Song for Eurovision ’22

Let’s start with the important thing first. No! This is NOT Beovizija which has been used as the national selection program in the past, to select the Serbian act for the Eurovision Song Contest. This is a new format by RTS, which will still follow a very similar format. This is all due to an disagreement that occurred in 2021 between the organizers of Beovizija and RTS, hence no Beovizija.

Anyhow, there will be a total of 36 songs competing in this “new” national selection, and a total of 3 shows will determine who will get to fly the Serbian flag in Turin.

Mark your calendar for these following dates:

  • Semi-Final 1: 3rd of March 2022
  • Semi-Final 2: 4th of March 2022
  • Grand Final: 5th of March 2022

Finally but not least, we also see one former Serbian Eurovision entrant on the list, which is Sara Jo who was part of the trio Moje 3 that represented Serbia in Malmö, in 2013, with the song “Ljubav je Svuda“.

At the moment, there is no details on how the 36 songs will be separated into the two semi-finals, or if any songs will be pre-qualified to the final.
