Moje 3 to represent Serbia!
Five songs were still in the running in the final of Beosong, the Serbian national selection for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest. It was still a varied selection, though: The TV public had the choice between ballads and up-tempo songs, between 16-year-old teen-stars and well-experienced vocalists. In the end, the band Moje 3, consisting of Mirna Radulović, Nevena Božović, and Sara Jovanović, won the trophy, which resembles the Beosong logo!
In an exciting evening show, the Serbian TV public, by means of televoting, picked the act that will represent the Balkanic country in Malmö. Out of five acts that had qualified from Saturday's semi-final of Beosong, they picked Moje 3, who sang Ljubav je svuda.
Three finalists of the music show "The First Voice of Serbia" will join forces to try and joined forces to win the ticket to Malmö. The winner of this show is 21-year-old Mirna Radulović who demonstrated that she is adept in all musical genres, from pop and rock to the old, traditional folk songs. She also plays violin, guitar and piano.
Nevena Božovic is 18 years old and hails from Kosovska Mitrovica, a girl with a powerful voice who is now a third year student at the Belgrade Faculty of Music. At the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2007 in Rotterdam she represented Serbia and won the third place with the song for which she wrote both music and lyrics herself.
The third link in the ensemble is 19-year-old Sara Jovanović, a girl who has mastered the art of scenic movement. She was born and raised in Rome, Italy. Her energetic performances and specific timbre of voice are the reason for her success at the First Voice of Serbia competition.
The Beosong final started with a brass version of the Eurovision anthem, and a dance performance to last year's winning song, Euphoria. Maja Nikolić presented the show on stage, while Gorica Nešović and Dragan Ilić reported from backstage and the green room.
