Serbia have announced the artists and details for their Eurovision 2023 national final 'Pesma za Evroviziju' (Song for Eurovision)'.
The artist announcement includes eight artists from last year's 'Pesma za Evroviziju' and two previous Eurovision competitors.
Competing this year is Tijana Dapčević who represented F.Y.R Macedonia at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest. She finished 13th in the semi-final two with 'To The Sky'.
Another Eurovision returnee is the newly formed and revamped Hurricane.
