Tonight it was time for the second semi-final of Serbia’s national final Beovizija 2020. Twelve more acts took to the stage in the hopes of reaching Sunday night’s final, but only six could make it through.
Beovizija 2020: Semi-Final 2 Qualifiers
Six acts advanced to the grand final on Sunday. These were determined by both a professional jury and a televote. In no particular order, the top six of the night that advanced to the final were:
- Hurricane – “Hasta la vista”
- Bane Mojićević – “Cvet sa Prokletija”
- Ana Milenković – “Tajna”
- LIFT – “Samo mi kaži”
- Milan Bujaković & Olivera Popović – “Niti”
- Naiva – “Baš, baš”
Immediately after the qualifiers had been announced, each of them drew their position in Sunday’s grand final. Milan and Olivera will perform first followed by fan-favourites Hurricane.
LIFT, Ana Milenković and Naiva will perform in eighth, ninth and tenth respectively, with Bane Mojićević closing the show in twelfth place.
Beovizija 2020 Semi-Final 2: The Show
In total, Beovizija 2020 has 24 entries — 12 in each semi. Hosted by Dragana Kosjerina and Jovan Radomir, with Kristina Radenković and Stefan Popović in the green room, the Serbian national selection showcased everything that the Balkan nation had to offer.
The semi-final kicked off with an energetic performance from the band LIFT and was wrapped up with a quaint and sophisticated performance by Milan Bujaković and Olivera Popović.
Moreover, this semi-final saw Beovizija heavyweights Hurricane take to the stage to perform their fiery “Hasta la vista”. Serbian national selection veteran Ivana Jordan, who took part back in 2006, was also competing.

On top of the 12 competing acts, in true Beovizija fashion, we were treated to a star-spangled list of opening and interval acts. Much like last year, numerous Eurovision stars from previous years, including Nevena Božović, Sanja Ilić & Balkanika, Tijana Dapčević, and Bebi Dol, took to the stage once more to entertain the crowd.
Opening the show was Serbia’s act for the 2019 edition of Eurovision, Nevena Božović, who gave a haunting rendition of the song that took her to Tel Aviv last year – “Kruna”.
Those six lucky qualifiers will be joined by the six who made it out of yesterday’s first semi-final, bringing us to twelve finalists still in the running for Rotterdam. Very soon, 24 will come down to one and Serbia will have their entrant for Eurovision 2020
