01 March 2009 at 03:03 CET

In the live television event BH Eurosong Show, tonight at 21:00 CET, the entry of Bosnia & Herzegovina for Moscow will be revealed.

The group Regina and their song Bistra Voda (Clear Water) were chosen by an internal jury among 79 entries. Now it is time to find out what the jury was convinced about! Bistra Voda is written by Aleksandar Čović.

During the live show, many guest stars will be performing: Amongst others, Greek representative Sakis Rouvas, Maltese representative Chiara and Turkish representative Hadise will be performing.

The band Regina was formed by three friends in 1990 in Sarajevo. Aco, Bojan and Dennis were joined by vocalist Davor Ebner, and together they released their first album Regina back in 1990. The band was especially popular in Bosnia & Herzegovina in the 1990's, but after their successful second album the group dissembled. In 2006, the group was reunited again and released the album Sve Muga Ja. This album became a huge success, and it includes many hits such as Ljubav nije za tebe, which is a duet with Elena Risteska who represented FYR Macedonia at the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest in Athens.

Regina will try to improve the last years' great results for the Balcan country in Moscow in May. Bosnia & Herzegovina has proved to be very successful in the recent decade. Last year, Bosnia & Herzegovina reached the 10th place in the Final of the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest in Belgrade with Laka's Pokušaj.
