Serbian broadcaster Radio Television of Serbia (RTS) announced earlier today that the Balkan nation will be represented at Junior Eurovision 2022 by 13-year-old Katarina Savić.

Savić will perform a song called “World Without Borders,” with music and lyrics written by Serb musician Ivana Dragićević. The song will be released shortly.

Savić is a singer and avid trombonist who also attends ballet. RTS picked her from the entries submitted after RTS’s open call for submission. It is unknown if there were only seven entries submitted this year as there were in 2021.

However, Savić is no stranger to television performance, as she has performed several Christmas classics and covers of Ella Fitzgerald’s “Summertime” and Doris Day’s “Que Sera Sera.

(Watch at 1:25 as Katarina breaks out her trombone and performs a small part; will she attempt to show off her trombone at Junior Eurovision itself?)

Serbia is  aJunior Eurovision regular with three distinct eras separated by a country name change and a lengthy absence.

Serbia debuted as part of Serbia and Montenegro at Junior Eurovision in 2005 with Filip Vučić coming in 13th with “Ljubav pa fudbal.” Serbia, after Montenegro’s independence, debuted at Junior Eurovision with 2006’s “Neustrašivi učitelji stranih jezika” coming in 5th.

Serbia’s best performances to date are Nevena Božović’s “Piši Mi” and Sonja Škorić ‘s “Чаробна ноћ” (“Magical Night”), coming in third in 2007 and 2010 respectively.

Last year’s Serbia entry, “Oči Deteta (Children’s Eyes)“, performed by Jovana and Dunja, came in 13th at Junior Eurovision 2021.

Junior Eurovision 2022 will be held on December 11, 2022 at the Karen Demirchyan Sports and Concerts Complex in Yerevan, Armenia.
