She is Serbia’s comeback queen.

And at her first rehearsal, Nevena Bozovic put in a polished and note perfect performance.

Decked out in metallic jewellery and a black dress similar to her national final look, she also appears to be a queen without a kingdom. Nevena was on her own during Serbia’s first rehearsal at Eurovision 2019 without backing vocalists or dancers.

In the first two run throughs the staging looked impressive. She starts out stood on a shattered LED floor that appears to be sucking in drops of water. After the first chorus, the shattered floor expands to the back wall and a whirlpool begins to expand up her dress. Then gradually the effect turns golden and begins to expand up the back wall, dispersing the blue energy. It ends in blue and a close up of Nevena.

The third run through had some technical problems. Smoke was added but it totally obscured Nevena and we lost her on stage. Serbia did have a fourth run through, but without the effect, so this may be changed in the second rehearsals.

Her vocals are “wow”. Surely this is qualifying, right?

Feeling EVEN better about my #1 song after today.
I had no doubts. Well, maybe about the staging. But, it was better than expected!

In a year without any female-vocal entries amongst the real frontrunners, it just needs one to catch on and why not this if she sings better than anyone else?

Nevena looks stunning as usual and so far she’s the best dressed of the bunch. Much more important than that: by the few seconds they gave us access, she sounds amazing. It seems they went for a similar approach to Hungary’s in terms of how to use the led screen, but with better results. The whole thing looks very ellegant. Can’t wait to check this one.

It looks like this is the best staging from Serbia in recent years, very professional and slick. Stunning vocals and visuals.
Btw, where is article about Hungary?

She is amazing! Bravo Serbia and Nevena! Not only that she should win Top Model by a landslide, but also she gives one of the most convincing performances.

This is the biggest surprise of the day. With montenegro and Slovenia also in this semi, this will now sail to the final. The question is how far it can go.

Top 3 rehearsal of today easily. Her chances of qualifying rising. I also like her costume and jewelry, even when it reminds me of that time I was visiting Windsor and I had to take my boots and jewelry off because of the metal beeping on the security arches.

Okay Serbia. I think I’ve never been more fascinated by Serbia’s performance than this year! Very stunning, amazing effects, it surprises me that Serbia has such a wonderful staging. This is definitely going to the top 10.

The rehearsal clip wasn’t really too much to judge on, but the visuals look quite nice, I think I already prefer them to the dull city skyline background from the NF. Nevena’s vocals are on point as usual. Also, in the rehearsal footage, there’s a part, where on the screen there’s like a swirl of ice, which makes me think that the backdrop will play an important role in the performance, thus making it more interesting. I’m not the biggest fan of the song, but so far things are looking good for Serbia.
