Vukašin Brajić represented Bosnia & Herzegovina at Europe's favourite TV-show this year. He really showed on stage what he sung about - Thunder and Lightning - and finished seventeenth in the Final.
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.
