Yugoslavia

Yugoslavia made its debut in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1961. The country won the contest in 1989 with the Croatian band Riva and their song 'Rock Me'. In 1990 the competition was held in Zagreb. The country last participated in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1992.

Yugoslavia chose their entry via a local competition that was named Jugovizija, where songs from all the constituent republics plus the two autonomous provinces took part. Only songs from five of the republics went on to win Jugovizija and the ticket to the Eurovision Song Contest: Serbia, Montenegro, Slovenia, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Croatia, meaning that no songs from Macedonia, Kosovo and Vojvodina managed to win the national selection in their 27 participations.
Following the break up of Yugoslavia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia all entered as independent countries in 1993. F.Y.R. Macedonia followed in 1998 and Serbia & Montenegro joined in 2004. In 2007 Serbia and Montenegro entered the Eurovision Song Contest separately as independent countries.
