More details have emerged about the song that will mark Bosnia and Herzegovina‘s return to Eurovision after a four-year break. The song — which will be performed by Dalal Midhat-Talakic, Fuad Backovic-Deen and Ana Rucner — will be revealed some time in the second half of February, and the Head of Delegation has confirmed that the lyrics will be in Bosnian.

Speaking to Faktor news, Head of Delegation Lejla Babovic confirmed that the song would be revealed on a television show in late February. The show will also feature a performance from the country’s last Eurovision representative, Maya Sar, who performed “Korake ti znam” in 2012.

While it had been speculated that the song would have English lyrics, like Deen’s 2004 song “In the Disco”, Babovic confirmed that the song going to Stockholm would be sung in Bosnian, explaining that, “it sounds a lot better than English.” And with six Balkan countries in the competition this year, Bosnia and Herzegovina could be making a wise decision to have lyrics that will be easily understood by their neighbours.

Babovic also noted that the song title hasn’t been decided yet, but they have two possibilities. An all-star team is behind the song, with Sarajevo-based rapper Jasmin Fazlic Jala and popular singer Zuzi Zu co-writing the lyrics.

There are plans to shoot a music video for the song, but exactly what form that takes will depend on the budget. Babovic explained that one plan, at least, is to show off the natural beauty of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Does that mean there will be rap in it?
I hoped for a epic ballad considering the violin, but I’m guessing it’s hoping to much?
Could be different though.

I’m glad that it won’t be sung in English. I hope they will perform Balkan music as well. Eurovision needs refreshment indeed

“An all-star team is behind the song, with Sarajevo-based rapper Jasmin Fazlic Jala and popular singer Zuzi Zu co-writing the lyrics.” Oh dear. Deen will try to rap. I need at least another month than is available to prepare myself for this. Can we move Eurovision to June?

Bosnian language is new language like montenegrin. In Yugoslavia was serbo-croatian language and that language was speak in Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro.

I’m very happy about the fact that Bosnia is going to sing in their own language. Balkan music is always amazing and can do really well at Eurovision. But I still can’t imagine how the three artists can be combined in order to create a great song. We’ll see… Good luck Bosnia!!!

I just don’t know what they were thinking when they thought of idea about singing in english, like srsly? As a Montenegrian I can already predict we’ll miss this year’s final unless if we send a KILLER song, which I doubt so
About Bosnian song, I’m pretty much excited about it 😀

Good to see. At least it cancels out Montenegró singing in English.

Will be nice to hear a language that’s not English….the contest used to be about different cultures and musical styles and language but no, that’s gone. Good for Bosnia for singing in their own language.
