This year's Serbian participant Nevena Božović has recorded a special acoustic version of her 2019 Eurovision Song Contest entry 'Kruna', debuting the group of backing vocalists who will be accompanying her in Tel Aviv.

Serbian public broadcaster RTS has chosen 4 singers who have previously graced the Eurovision stage multiple times. These so-called 'all-star Eurovision vocalists' have already proven themselves in 2012, 2015, 2017 and 2018. Read more about them below.

Dušan Alagić 

He is a composer, lyricist, music producer and multi-instrumentalist from Belgrade. He was part of the Serbian team in Baku in 2012 as a pianist, guitarist and backing vocalist for Željko Joksimović.

Dušan produced 2 Serbian songs for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, and he also produced and wrote the lyrics for the Serbian version of In Too Deep, Tijana Bogićević's 2017 Eurovision Song Contest entry.

Olga Popović 

She was also part of the Serbian Eurovision team in 2012. Olga played the violin and sang backing vocals when Željko Joksimović reached 3rd place in the Grand Final for Serbia.

Ivana Vladović

She is a Eurovision veteran, having sung backing vocals two times for Montenegro. In 2015 she accompanied Knez in Vienna, and in 2018 she accompanied Vanja Radovanović in Lisbon. This year she competed in Beovizija 2019, the Serbian national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest. She and the group Wonder Strings finished 5th, but she will still help Serbia shine in Tel Aviv.

Mladen Lukić 

He represented Serbia at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon as the lead vocalist for Sanja Ilić & Balkanika, when Serbia reached the Grand Final and ended 18th place.
