“It is a great honour and pleasure to be a part of the Eurovision Song Contest after eight years again. I am more than excited to write a song that will represent our country in Vienna next year”, Graić said for Eurovision.tv
A well know Serbian composer admits the he was surprised by the decision of RTS. „Their decision surprised me but I am thankful for the trust.“ An author of the Serbian winning song at 2007 Eurovision Song Contest in Helsinki confirmed that he will be writing three entries for three different artists. However, at this moment he cannot reveal more than that. „There is a lot of work now. On one side I will be writing three songs, but at the same time I have find three great performers“, Graić explains pointing out that he is not thinking much about the success he had eight years ago, bringing Serbia the very first Eurovision victory.
„I don’t want to think about that victory to be honest, as it could make a big pressure on me. I actually feel like it's my first time”, Graić (46) responded to our question about how big the pressure it is for him to write a great song for the biggest music competition in Europe and beyond one more time. “I have a lot of ideas, but it’s too early to talk about them. But I promise, more about that next time.”
After one year break, RTS was pleased to announce that Serbia is going to be a part of the Eurovision Song Contest again! The last time we have seen Serbian artists among the Eurovision contestants was in 2013 in Malmö. Moje 3 won the national selection Beosong in Belgrade, but they didn’t manage to get enough of support from the viewers and jury members across Europe in order to qualify for the Final that year.
