Here’s one storm we're always pleased to report on: the Serbian girl group Hurricane are surging towards the Eurovision Song Contest with their entry 'LOCO LOCO.'
The band told Eurovision.tv LOCO LOCO represents that “we’re all a bit ‘loco’ sometimes”, which is why (according to the trio) the ‘80s inspired video starts in Hurricane’s personal ‘house of fun’ before taking us on a tour of their disco jungle via a bathtub filled with glitter balls.
The Balkan banger was composed by Nemanja Antonić (also behind Hurricane’s Hasta la Vista) while Darko Dimitrov worked with him on the arrangement. Band member Sanja Vučić wrote the lyrics.
The pop trio, consisting of Sanja Vučić, Ivana Nikolić and Ksenija Knežević, were due to represent Serbia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 with dance floor stomper Hasta La Vista. Serbian broadcaster RTS decided early on that the band would receive an invitation to perform at the 2021 Contest.
The talented trio are no strangers to competing at the highest level.
Sanja represented Serbia at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2016 with her song Goodbye (Shelter), earning a respectable 115 points at the Grand Final in Stockholm.
Ksenija is a singer of Montenegrin origin who provided backing vocals for her father Knez on his 2015 Eurovision entry Adio - this became the most successful entry for Montenegro so far.
Ivana is a professional dancer, winning multiple national and European dance competitions.
