Serbia has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 14 times since making its debut in 2007. They previously participated as part of Yugoslavia (both the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia from 1961 to 1991 and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in 1992) and as Serbia and Montenegro (2004–2006). Serbia won the contest on its debut as an independent country in 2007, with “Molitva” performed by Marija Šerifović.
This Weeks Highlights
Paul Harrington is an Irish musician, who, with Charlie McGettigan, won the Eurovision Song Contest for Ireland in 1994. The song was Ireland’s sixth overall victory, and represented an unprecedented third consecutive time that the same country had won the contest. There was a myth among Irish media that the song was deliberately chosen not to win. As the contest rules expect the previous year’s winner to host the next edition of the contest, the argument runs that the Irish broadcaster was not prepared to do this for a third consecutive year, hence the selection; this has never been proven.
