They say the third time is the charm.

And Serbia‘s Eurovision broadcaster RTS will hope that is the case when Beovizija 2020 kicks off next month.

RTS has revealed the two semi-finals have been scheduled for February 28 and February 29. The final will follow on March 1.

The news was announced through the broadcaster’s social media channels:

In total 24 acts are in the running to represent Serbia in the Netherlands in May. They’ll be split between the semi-finals and six acts will advance from each heat to the final. The eventual winner will be decided by split votes from a jury and Serbian televoters.

Who are the Beovizija 2020 semi-finalists?

Girl group Hurricane, grand dame of the former Yugoslavia Neda Ukraden and Bane Mojićević are among big name stars competing in this year’s Beovizija.

Hurricane is going, it’s a stinking set-up. The contest has, been rigged for years already!!!!! That’s why big names don’t want to apply to compete and if they do they are not qualified to be in final list lol. Who pays for the licence he chooses the winner.

You are wrong! The same was said the last year, when a HUGE celebrity competed, Dzenan, and guess what. He didn’t win. Hurricane is under the spotlight right now, enjoying enormous success, so public will probably give them 12 for liking them, and that’s FAIR AND SQUARE. If jury isn’t some group of 70 y.o. no one ever heard of “professionals” then Hurricane will get total of 24 or close to that, deservingly, IF they have a great song and performance as expected.

Nina, that’s because it was rigged AGAINST Dzenan lol… everyone knows it. The jury tanked him. This year the rumour is it will be rigged FOR Hurricane…… big difference.

Everyone said that JURY will push Dzenan to win, not that they will vote against him. Read last year comments carefully. So, the bottom line is – It is not a fixed contest, at least not 100% as some are saying here. Jury votes MIGHT be manipulated to some extent, but to say that the winner is preselected is a stupid thing

Andrija Jo or Aleksa Vuckovic!

Praying that RTS’ jury isn’t a bunch of 70 year olds that would surely vote down a fresh bop which is what Hasta La Vista is supposed to be

Bomba for da win

You can already hear a song of Neda Ukraden, Bomba. It had been released long time ago, even though RTS has a strict rule that songs CANNOT be made available until specific date (6th Feb in this case), and her song already has around 600.000 views, clear advantage over other competitors. Really interested to see what will RTS decide over Neda’s issue lol

SO MUCH set for February 29th! (Dora, Songvakeppnin, Eesti Laul, MF Andra Chansen, Beovizija semi…)
This is why I would much prefer national finals slowly seeping since November rather than having an overload in late January – early March. I’d like to follow as much as possible, but it’s really hard to do so.
