Previously the line up for Beosong 2013 was announced and was as follows

The national selection process continues unabated this week with RTS the Serbian national broadcaster announcing the participants of this year’s Beosong contest. 15 songs and performers will battle it out to represent Serbia in Malmo. The Beosong contest will take place over 2 shows, due to air on 02nd and 03rd March.
Performers were given the task of choosing their own positions by drawing lots. The list of performances is as follows;
1. Ljubav je svuda – Mirna Radulović, Nevena Božović, Sara Jovanović
2. Moja svetlosti – Igor Terzija
3. Blagoslov – Maja Nikolić
4. Usne kadifa – Kal
5. Ruža od baruta – Nenad Milosavljević
6. Duga u tvojim očima – Saška Janković
7. Što prolazim – Dušan Zrnić
8. Anđeo s neba – Maja Odžaklijevska
9. Spas – Dušan Svilar
10. Magija – SKY’s
11. Svetla pale se za nas – Ksenija Kočetova
12. Halo – Marija Mihajlović
13. Savršen kraj – Aleksandra Dabić
14. Za tebe živim – Kristina Savić
15. Tren – Žarko Stepanov

However Maja Odžaklijevska has withdrawn from the contest citing ill health – we wish her a speedy recovery – however the song “Anđeo s neba” (Angel from the sky) will remain in the contest. The composer of the song Nikola Burovac is seeking a replacement artist as we speak.

Since Serbia debuted in 2007 and won with Marija Šerifović’s ‘Molitva’, it has been one of the most successful countries to participate in Eurovision in recent years. Of their six Eurovision entries to date, they have reached the final 5 times, and finished in 3rd position last year in Baku with Željko Joksimović’s ‘Nije ljubav stvar’.
