Serbia: 'Pesma za Evroviziju' semi-final 2 results
The second semi-final of Serbia's national final 'Pesma za Evroviziju' took place this morning, with the next nine songs being selected to compete in tomorrow's Final.
Today's show was opened by the Serbian rock singer Đorđe David giving us a performance of Måneskin's 'Zitti e buoni'.
The interval act featured some legendary Serbian artists perform classic Eurovision songs dating back to the Yugoslavian times. The artists included Danijel, who represented Yugoslavia in 1983, and Bojana Stamenov, who represented Serbia in 2015.
One of the big fan favourites going into the semi-finals, Sara Jo was amongst the nine acts to make it through to the final with her song 'Muškarčina (Manly Man)'. Tijana Dapčević, who represented North Macedonia in 2014, also made it through.
A special mention goes to Naiva, who in her postcard clip where the artists lip synced to their favourite Eurovision song, chose 'Zero Gravity' by Australia's Kate Miller-Heidke.
The nine acts that will progress to the final are:
Tijana Dapčević – 'Ljubi, ljubi doveka (Kiss, Kiss Forever)'
