Serbia in the Eurovision Song Contest
◄2021 2022

Serbia participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin, Italy, with "In corpore sano" performed by Konstrakta. The Serbian national broadcaster Radio Television of Serbia (RTS) organised the national final Pesma za Evroviziju '22 in order to select the Serbian entry for the 2022 contest. It was the first entry in the Eurovision Song Contest to contain a verse in Latin.

Background

Prior to the 2022 contest, Serbia has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest thirteen times since its first entry in 2007, winning the contest with their debut entry "Molitva" performed by Marija Šerifović. Since 2007, ten out of thirteen of Serbia's entries have featured in the final with the nation failing to qualify in 2009, 2013 and 2017. Serbia's 2021 entry, "Loco Loco" performed by Hurricane, qualified to the final and placed fifteenth.

The Serbian national broadcaster, Radio Television of Serbia (RTS), broadcasts the event within Serbia and organises the selection process for the nation's entry. Between 2007 and 2009, Serbia used the Beovizija national final in order to select their entry. However, after their 2009 entry, "Cipela" performed by Marko Kon and Milaan, failed to qualify Serbia to the final, the broadcaster shifted their selection strategy to selecting specific composers to create songs for artists. In 2010, RTS selected Goran Bregović to compose songs for a national final featuring three artists, while in 2011 Kornelije Kovač, Aleksandra Kovač and Kristina Kovač were tasked with composing one song each. In 2012, the internal selection of Željko Joksimović and the song "Nije ljubav stvar" secured the country's second highest placing in the contest to this point, placing third. In 2013, RTS returned to an open national final format and organized the Beosong competition. The winning entry, "Ljubav je svuda" performed by Moje 3, failed to qualify Serbia to the final. In 2015, RTS selected Vladimir Graić, the composer of Serbia's 2007 winning entry "Molitva", to compose songs for a national final featuring three artists.[1] RTS internally selected the Serbian entries in 2016 and 2017 with the decision made by RTS music editors.[1] In 2018 and 2019, RTS returned to using the Beovizija national final in order to select their entry, managing to qualify every year to the final. After the cancellation of the 2020 contest, RTS selected Beovizija 2020 winners Hurricane to represent Serbia in 2021. Their song "Loco Loco" was also internally selected and qualified the country to the final.[2]

Before Eurovision

Pesma za Evroviziju '22

Pesma za Evroviziju '22 is the national final organised by RTS in order to select the Serbian entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2022.[3] The selection consisted of two semi-finals held on 3 and 4 March 2022, respectively, and a final on 5 March 2022.[4] All shows were hosted by Dragana Kosjerina [sr] and Jovan Radomir with backstage interviews conducted by Kristina Radenković and Stefan Popović.[5] The three shows were broadcast on RTS1 and RTS Planeta as well as streamed online via the broadcaster's website rts.rs.[6]

Competing entries

Artists and songwriters were able to submit their entries between 28 September 2021 and 1 December 2021. Artists were required to be Serbian citizens and submit entries in one of the official languages of the Republic of Serbia, while songwriters of any nationality were allowed to submit songs.[7] At the closing of the deadline, 150 submissions were received.[8] A selection committee consisting of RTS music editors reviewed the submissions and selected thirty-six entries to proceed to the national final.[9] The selected competing entries were announced on 14 January 2022 and among the competing artists is Sara Jo, who represented Serbia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 as part of the group Moje 3.[10][11]

On 19 January 2022, Stefan Zdravković (Princ od Vranje) announced his withdrawal from the national final due to conflicts with the songwriter of his song "Ljubi svog čoveka". The song was instead performed by Tijana Dapčević, who represented Macedonia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2014, under an altered version titled "Ljubi, ljubi doveka".[12][13] On 14 February 2022, RTS announced that Goca Tržan had withdrawn from the national final due to health problems and was replaced with the song "Devojko sa plamenom u očima" performed by Chegi and Braća Bluz Band.[14]

Controversies

Vote rigging allegations

After the final, singer Aca Lukas, who placed 5th in the final with the song "Oskar", accused the Serbian public broadcaster RTS of irregularities in the voting of the selection, stating he would file a criminal complaint against the head of the Radio Television of Serbia, editor of entertainment program Olivera Kovačević [sr] and general director Dragan Bujošević [sr] for "stealing votes".[28] RTS responded, stating that the SMS votes were counted automatically by software which did not allow interference. The Comtrade System Integration company, which set up the software to count the votes, said it was prepared to hand the votes to the authorities if requested to do so, adding that the same data is available from mobile phone operators.[28] He also made comments about the winning performer Konstrakta, saying: "I could have gone on stage and washed my feet, but I chose instead to perform", also claiming she is working for opposition political parties.[29] Konstrakta, laughing off his suggestion, jokingly offered "to wash his feet for him."[29] After the controversy, RTS and Kovačević announced they would sue Lukas.[28]

Promotion

Konstrakta performed "In corpore sano" at the Israel Calling Eurovision pre-party in Tel Aviv on 7 April 2022, to positive feedback. Due to technical issues, she performed alone on stage and used hotel towels for the performance.[30][31][32] Two days later, she performed the song on the third episode of the tenth season of Zvijezde pjevaju, the Croatian version of Just the Two of Us, on HRT 1.[33][34]

Send-off ceremony

On April 28, RTS prepared a ceremonial farewell of the Serbian representative to the Eurovision Song Contest 2022. The ceremony was attended by numerous guests, including the Ambassador of Italy to Serbia Carlo Lo Cascio, the editor of the entertainment program Olivera Kovačević and the director of RTS Dragan Bujošević, as well as members of OGAE Serbia, fans of the competition, journalists and others. At the ceremony, the flags of Serbia and the host country were as is tradition given to the representative of Serbia. This year, the Ambassador of Italy to Serbia presented the Italian flag and wished the Serbian representative success in the competition.[35][36]

At Eurovision

According to Eurovision rules, all nations with the exceptions of the host country and the "Big Five" (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) are required to qualify from one of two semi-finals in order to compete for the final; the top ten countries from each semi-final progress to the final. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) split up the competing countries into six different pots based on voting patterns from previous contests, with countries with favourable voting histories put into the same pot. On 25 January 2022, an allocation draw was held which placed each country into one of the two semi-finals, as well as which half of the show they would perform in. Serbia has been placed into the second semi-final, to be held on 12 May 2022, and has been scheduled to perform in the first half of the show.[37]

Once all the competing songs for the 2022 contest had been released, the running order for the semi-finals was decided by the shows' producers rather than through another draw, so that similar songs were not placed next to each other. Serbia was set to perform in position 3, following the entry from Israel and before the entry from Azerbaijan.[38]

Voting

Voting during the three shows involved each country awarding two sets of points from 1-8, 10 and 12: one from their professional jury and the other from televoting. Each nation's jury consisted of five music industry professionals who are citizens of the country they represent, with a diversity in gender and age represented. The judges assess each entry based on the performances during the second Dress Rehearsal of each show, which takes place the night before each live show, against a set of criteria including: vocal capacity; the stage performance; the song's composition and originality; and the overall impression by the act.[39] Jury members may only take part in panel once every three years, and are obliged to confirm that they are not connected to any of the participating acts in a way that would impact their ability to vote impartially. Jury members should also vote independently, with no discussion of their vote permitted with other jury members. The exact composition of the professional jury, and the results of each country's jury and televoting were released after the grand final; the individual results from each jury member were also released in an anonymised form.[40][41]

Below is a breakdown of points awarded to Serbia and awarded by Serbia in the second semi-final and grand final of the contest, and the breakdown of the jury voting and televoting conducted during the two shows:
