What next for this year’s Eurovision finalists?
Serbia: Nevena Božović
Since Serbia went solo from Montenegro in 2007 its done rather well, winning in its first year and a third place in 2012. The country has generally finished in the top ten since then less three years when it failed to qualify at all, so this year all eyes were on singer Nevena Božović with her entry “Kruna” (“Crown”). Despite a powerful performance with an even more electrifying song, Nevena finished eighteenth with 89 points with 54 of those coming from the tele vote.
Nevena is no stranger to music or the Eurovision Song Contest having released her debut single “Piši mi” (“Write To Me”) in 2007 for Junior Eurovision in Rotterdam and coming third overall. She again brushed with Eurovision in 2013 as part of the group Moje 3 when they went to Malmö with their song “Ljubav je svuda” (“Love Is All Around”) which sadly finished eleveth, just six points short of qualifying for the final. She would, however, be on the Serbian jury for the 2015 Contest in Vienna.
Aged 24 years, Nevena wrote “Kruna” with producer Darko Dimitrov and released it as her fourteenth single in March 2019 having been chosen by the Serbian jury to represent the country at this year’s Eurovision. The song has recently won the Naxi Radio award for most played track of the year and has proven a big draw on all platforms as well as on YouTube. Nevena is set for a glowing career to follow with high hopes for future tracks in the very near future!
