Serbia has chosen an act for Eurovision 2024. The grand final of Pesma za Evroviziju 24 was a hotly contested event, but it was Teya Dora who emerged as the winner.

Teya will now head to Malmö to wave the Serbian flag with the song  “Ramonda”

Pesma za Evroviziju 24: Grand final results

The decision of who won was down to a jury and the public. Both counted for 50% of the final result.

  1. Teya Dora – “Ramonda”
  2. Breskvica – “Gnezdo orlovo”
  3. Zorja – “Lik u ogledalu”
  4. Konstrakta – “Novo, bolje”
  5. Zejna – “Najbolja”
  6. Dušan Kurtić – “Zbog tebe živim”
  7. Bojana & David – “No No No”
  8. Džordži – “Luna park”
  9. Lena Kovačević – “Zovi me Lena”
  10. Hristina – “Bedem”
  11. Keni nije mrtav – “Dijamanti”
  12. Iva Lorens – “Dom”
  13. M.Ira – “Percepcija”
  14. Marko Mandić – “Dno”
  15. Nemanja Radošević – “Jutra bez tebe”
  16. Milan Bujaković – “Moje tvoje”

Teya Dora reacts to her victory

Speaking to our Cinan in the RTS studios moments after her victory, Teya was overwhelmed and emotional. 

“[I feel] weird. So weird. But again so grateful and so grateful for the audience who voted and so grateful to the jury, especially Marija Serifovic.”

“She said such a beautiful thing. I can’t even remember now, but when she said I knew I’d already won in my head because it was just so beautiful for her to say that.”

“I’m a little frozen. That’s why I sound like this!”

“Okay, so like all of this work that we did and all of this emotion that we put in — it made me so happy. For my whole team and for everybody who recognised this song. It comes from a pure emotion and pure honesty. People figured it out. It was emotional.”

When we spoke she hadn’t yet spoken to her family. 

“I took my phone on stage with me and I had my gum in my mouth, and then somebody took my phone. I haven’t even talked to my mom. She’s probably crazy ecstatic at home because I know how she is.”

Quite a controversial process, but we decided to send a compromise. Serbia is currently in deep state of divide, the populist politics and on a verge on abandoning EU aspirations and go back to aggessive vocabulary from the 90s. The song contest revealed this divide. 3 songs on the top show the situation in our socitey: Konstrakta which is the most intelligent and by far the best choice for the contest did not attract attention because to many intelligent people have left our country, Breskvica with “Gnezdo Orlovo” which is just a cover for “Kosovo” and it openly calls for… Read more »

This song is not about political situation in Serbia. At all. Whatsoever, this song is about finding goodness, light and true meaning in the quiet, small but powerful things, such as this flower that can resurrect and rise from the cold stone! It is a powerful methaphore and IT IS – very much so- appropriate for ‘esc bubble’.

I agree with your analysis in general, although I wouldn’t go as far as to say that “Gnezdo orlovo” openly calls for genocide – I can’t imagine a song openly calling for genocide being admitted to the national selection in any country. I’d say it’s just a stark reminder that, although ethnic Serbs constituted a third of the population in Kosovo a hundred years ago, their number has dropped to 10% even before the Yugoslav wars started, and that today it is below 5%, while ethnic Albanians in the same period went up from 60% to above 90%. These are… Read more »

This song Ramonda is non festival song
You can not even understand what the girl is singing, mubuling who knows. Probably only herself. The outfit is just a bad choppy of something already seen on stage. Very bad choice for such a grand festival. Apparently in Serbia they lack of sense for this kind of festival. The last and probably the only time that Serbia will ever win agin was with Molitva by Maria Šerifovi?.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of Serbs hating the song only because of other favorites they had. That is really sad….. Imagine, ESC fans from other countries adore the song, and native people ( some of them) hating publicly. This makes me want Ramonda to win it all!!! It’s amazing!

I agree that Teya’s song is better in general, but that’s not enough. I wouldn’t compare those two.

Teya will struggle to qualify. If she does, top 10 from jury in the final should be achievable.

On a side note, Israeli national broadcaster announced it asked the songwriters of “October Rain” and “Dance Alone” to make changes to pass the EBU check for song verification. Lol, Kan previously stated it will disagree on any changes and demanded the EBU to act “professionally”. Well, look what we have – a two faced NATIONAL broadcaster doing everything to be able to spread propaganda in Europe. Get lost!

It doesn’t have to do anything with Albania. Nor Kosovo, although it is probably about Kosovo. It is about the “global injustice” against Serbia. You can pick whatever war/conflict in the history, Yugoslav civil war, NATO bombardment 1999, Kosovo wars prior to that, WWII, whatever you want.

Wrong. The songs speaks of Serbs surviving attacks – specifically of bombing – as the hail from the sky ruins the nest. Also, the census shows it is the Serbs and non-Albanians who have been cleansed from Kosovo. 250,000 at least are gone while the Albanians stole the homes and properties of those people and actively prevent them from returning. That is permanent ethnic cleansing. It was also the KLA in conjunction with NATO bombing which cause the Albanians to leave for Macedonia and Albania. It wasn’t happening before the bombing, and a German journalist, embedded with the KLA witnessed… Read more »

My thing with this kind of dark, dramatic Balkan ballads is that they come out a bit boring and I also found the repetition of “Ramonda” too much.

The Slovenian song is good. But I saw Veronika performed live (at a national final, can’t remember where) and it was utterly underwhelming. This kind of songs need a powerful emotional performance to go through and shine. She was rather bland.

Does Constracta have mobility issues? Why did she choose to sit this one out (literally and figuratively) with arguably the best song of the night? I guess the dough in a basin was a cute nod to her prior ESC entry but that got old after 15 seconds. Where was the creativity in visual presentation? I’m scratching my head as she was presented to us a strong imaginative artist a few years ago. What a shame.

Symbolism, again. Her song is about modern people urging for novelties every day, and yet nothing basically changes in our lives. It’s also about the political slogan of the party that’s been ruling Serbia for more than a decade – faster, stronger, better – but nothing is better in Serbia. So, Konstrakta nailed it again, though her symbolism is not everybody’s cup of tea.

So are we talking about predictions or taste here? I can accept your opinion about the song, but your prediction is not based on statistics, patterns etc, just wanted to tell you that. We have 3 Slavic countries competing in the first semi final. Teya Dora is an international hit that is going viral on ALL social media platforms. Her song stands out (whether you like it or not), and that means more attention. If Eurovision was really just about “taste”, then unknown countries would win every year. And it’s not just about winning. If you don’t build momentum at… Read more »

I am obviously talking about my opinion regarding the song as well as my predictions. I know she’s got a viral hit song, but guess what.. that viral hit song is “Dzanum”, and here we are talking about “Ramonda”, which are two different songs, and arguably the latter is not (nearly) as good as the first one. Her vocals are just too weak for such a song so I expect similar issues as with Luke in May. The song feels unfinished, and as soon as it starts feeling like it’s going somewhere, it ends, and we don’t want that. And… Read more »

Can we talk about the fact that Breskvica got 45k votes from the public, Teya 28k and Zorja 10k?
I feel like this goes against what the public wished for. But I am actually so glad that she won because people all around the world know her, though her song is a little weak in my opinion (but beautiful though).
So my personal fav was Zorja, the act I think is supposed to win is Breskvica because of public vote and the act that is best for eurovision is Teya. Sre?no Teya 🙂

I think politics should be kept out of Eurovision, while patriotism is welcome. I also think Breskvica’s and Teya’s song most clearly show the difference between the two. So, as for me, the jury did their job well. I also believe (evidence from social networks) that many young people voted for Breskvica because they knew who she is, but haven’t seen any of her live performances (including last night). I don’t say the performance was bad, I just think they voted blindly (we can only guess to what degree the vote was also politically motivated). Anyway, I wouldn’t give too… Read more »

Pretty song! I got a bit of Loreen vibes watching this. For those complaining about the lack of female ballad you can be happy it’s a nice one, great addition to the line up and the staging is on point, good luck Serbia!

I’ve watched her performance during the serbian semi-final and in the live chat serbian people described her as the serbian loreen (probably because of her haircut).
In my opinion I feel like she is more the serbian billie eilish. Definatly enjoyed listening to her and it’s one of the songs I could listen to more than once.
I am just wondering if it’s not too much of a tender song for the eurovision song. Probably better to listen to with headphones in a focused or relaxed moody situation.

But goof luck to her! She is a good artist.

Good staging, although multiple elements remind me of previous contestants. As for the song..not my cup of tea I suppose. It doesn’t really do much and I am not so sure about it pulling ahead.
