Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina -

This year's Bosnian representative, Maya Sar has released an English version of her much acclaimed song, Korake ti znam after requests from Eurovision Song Contest fans. See it right here!

Maya Sar will this year represent Bosnia & Herzegovina at the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest with Korake ti znam in the second Semi-Final on the 24th of May.

Although she will perform the song in Bosnian in Baku, she decided to release an English language version of the song after requests from all over the continent.

"By request of many Eurovision fans from all over Europe, I decided to adapt the lyrics into English, in a way that the meaning and message that carries on the original version remains unchanged", Maya said.

The new English version of the song is entitled The Steps I Know and is available to watch below:

The official preview video of the original Bosnian version of the song can also be seen below and is available to watch on our YouTube channel.

    WOW ! This is quite good when you know what she is singing about, otherwise in her native tongue sounds quite bland, only my opinion of course. report to the moderator

    Wow, I really love this. Maybe it's just familiarity with the music. Or, in English, the qualities of Maya's voice are represented so much better. I really did not notice this in Bosnian. Will look forward to this performance in Baku. report to the moderator

    The song loses its magic when sung in English. I sure hope Maya will sing in Bosnian in the show in Baku! report to the moderator

    The song loses its magic when sung in English. I sure hope she will stick to Bosnian for the show. report to the moderator

    I'm sorry to say, but it sounds absolutely boring in English. The original is by no means a masterpiece, but is a decent song.

    This version is horrible, and i wonder why fans requested an English version at all? report to the moderator

    I don't feel that charm that B&H sent in previous Escs. But it will be in the top 10 for sure! report to the moderator
