As we all know, Eurovision 2020 was sadly cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. But thankfully, a massive 26 artists have been given the opportunity to return and represent their countries at Eurovision 2021. But as per the standard Eurovision rules, they’ve all got new songs.
It’s natural that there will be comparisons to their previous entries. So, we want to know — do you prefer the returning artists’ 2020 or 2021 songs?
Today, we’re saying zdravo and shining a light on Serbia. In 2020, Hurricane were set to take “Hasta La Vista” to Rotterdam. This year, they’ll be singing “Loco Loco” at Eurovision 2021. But which song is your favourite? Vote in our poll now!

“Hasta La Vista” (Serbia 2020)
Hurricane – that’s Sanja Vučić, Ivana Nikolić and Ksenija Knežević – were first chosen to represent Serbia at Eurovision last year after winning Beovizija 2020. Their song, “Hasta La Vista”, was a dynamic track that combined dance-pop, R&B and a bit of Balkan flair.
The Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of music unprofessionals — awarded “Hasta La Vista” a score of 6.43/10. Wiwiblogger William had this to say about the song in his review:
“The Weather Channel is not ready for this Hurricane! Sanja, Ivana, and Ksenija are stand-out vocalists on their own. Put them together and it’s time to issue a warning. This is loud. This is sexy. This is FIRE! As intoxicating as those Sirens from Greek myth, this Serbian threesome unleash a wall of sound, harmony and sass that speeds by as fast as a hipster after a slice of avocado on toast. These ladies stomp so hard — and bend and snap and twerk — that it’s no surprise they’re wearing shattered glass. But trust: this ain’t broken. Put it all together and you have the dance banger of the year.”
“Loco Loco” (Serbia 2021)
Serbian broadcaster RTS internally selected Hurricane to return for Eurovision 2021. This year, they’re going crazy with the song “Loco Loco”.
Despite using another Spanish song title, the majority of the full-force banger is once again in Serbian. Lyrically, Hurricane encourage women to be brave and make the first move towards someone that’s caught their eye.
