Wrap-up: Vukašin brought "thunder and lightning" to Oslo

25 June 2010 at 11:12 CEST

Who are they?

Vukašin Brajić, who placed second in the pan-balkan pop music TV-contest Operation Triumph, was nicknamed the assassin because he managed to eliminate all those nominated with him, although they were considered favourites of the audience. At the end of the show, the jury proclaimed him the participant with the highest average mark.

Even though he has been on the music scene for a little over a year, he has had many performances and concerts that qualified him to be the representative of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Eurovision Song Contest. He believes his greatest advantage is his capacity for transformation on stage. He likes rock music because he can draw energy from it for his performances and it is the only style that reflects his temperament. Emotional and impulsive.

Dino Šaran, who wrote his song, is one of the most respected composers in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia. He has written songs for famous music stars such as Vanna, Crvena jabuka, Luka Nižetić, but also for the folk music star Halid Bešlić.

"This is a song about co-existence and tolerance. The lyrics are introspective and talk about the relationship between two people, but this can be applied to a strained relationship between any two subjects." he said about the entry.

What the fans thought?

"A good entry from Bosnia & Herzegovina (as always)! Good luck!" Mustafa G. Karahan from Turkey said.  "Super! Excellent song, good singer and music. I guarantee one vote from Russia!" said Elena Zavidova from Russia. 

He finished 17th in the Final of the Eurovision Song Contest with 51 points and 8th in the first Semi-Final, held on the Tuesday before.
