Back on September 29, Eurovision 2007 winner Marija Serifovic sent out a Tweet that made us put down our martinis and ponder the possibility that she might return to ESC.
A da idem na taj Eurosong da pobedim jos jednom ????????????????????????????????

In English that roughly means: “And go to the Eurovision Song Contest to win again”.
The emoticons are more difficult to interpret. Are they crying because it’s a preposterous idea and it’s making her laugh too hard? Or are those tears of joy at the chance to conquer Europe again?
According to Kurir, a Serbian tabloid, Marija is, in fact, already on a shortlist to compete at a national selection. Yes, following reports that Serbia has found the money to participate in Vienna, the tabloid is suggesting they have found enough funds to stage a national selection, which will consist of three artists, including Marija. They claim she would sing a song by Vladimir Graic, the man behind her winning Eurovision entry “Molitva”, if selected.
Interestingly, the paper also claims that producers may give Marija’s spot to her brother.
Kurir has previously reported that Bojana Stamenov, the Serbian Aretha Franklin, will also compete. She started her career performing in amusement parks before rising to fame on the show Ja Imam Talenat.
What do you think of the news? Should Marija return? And what about Bojana?
